Comparing the size of his pool to Kanye West’s, Drake caused a stir by rapping, “Ye’s pool is nice, mine’s just big is what I’m saying” on Summer Sixteen. West responded to Drake by reportedly building a lake-sized pool in his backyard.
Yet despite the back and forth between the two rap giants over their pools, the two artists’ pools pale in comparison to the ones found in places like Sharm el Sheik, Egypt and San Alfonso del Mar, Chile, where two of the ten largest swimming pools in the world are located.
