Drake also has a Hermès Birkin bag collection that he's been collecting for his future wife. The collection includes the extremely rare Hermès Himalaya Birkin which is worth $382,000.
His jewelry collection is something else we cannot but mention. A lot of pieces in the collection were made by Jason of Beverly Hills, but Drake also has pieces by other jewelers. We estimate the jewelry collection would now be worth well over $3 million.
