Drake Asks News Helicopters to Stop Flying Over His Toronto Mansion: ‘I Won’t Lie I’m Trying to Sleep’

While it looks like the furious back-and-forth between Drake and Kendrick Lamar has settled back down to a simmer, that doesn’t mean the 6 God can totally relax. After a week in which Drizzy’s Bridle Path Toronto mansion was the site of two alleged incidents of trespassing and a shooting incident involving one of the rapper’s security guards, the “Rich Flex” MC begged for some peace and quite in an Instagram Story on Saturday.

According to ET, Drake specifically shouted out Toronto news outlet CP24 in the message, where he wrote, “@cp24breaking news can we discuss the chopper flight times over the house cause I won’t lie I’m trying to sleep anytime after 3 pm works great for me.”


A spokesperson for Drake had not returned Billboard‘s request for additional comment at press time.

The increased attention on Drake’s palatial estate comes after the wind-down of a heated diss track battle with K-Dot, which the Canadian chart-topper seemed to put a capper on on Thursday when he posted a contemplative scene from the Netflix drama A Man in Full.

Before that, though, things were a bit hectic on the home front. Toronto’s CityNews reported a break-in attempt on May 8, which was followed a day later by a report of a shooting outside the MC’s enormous private residence. According to reports, the shooting involved one of Drake’s security guards, who was critically injured by unknown assailants who fled the scene. The Bridal Path property — already well-known from Drake’s “Toosie Slide” video – was in the spotlight again recently when Lamar used an image of it as the cover art of his Drake takedown track “Not Like Us.”
