This past Saturday, Drake hosted Saturday Night Live and jokingly bemoaned the number of memes made about him in his opening monologue song “More than a Meme”. Now, seemingly in response to this and an ingenious move by what was surely one of Drake’s biggest fans, not only has the rapper been turned into an internet meme, but also a 3D printed figurine! The tiny 3D printed figurine was modeled after Drake’s own Views album cover, which dropped last month, in which he is sitting atop the CN Tower in his beloved Toronto.

For big Drake fans like myself, the 3D printed figurine, which quietly popped up on Shapeways marketplace the other day, is like a gift from the 6 God himself. The life-like model is tiny, measuring only 7.5cm tall and 4cm in width (2.95x1.6”) and is the perfect size to perch atop almost anything. From a tall cupboard in your room, to your dining table, to the CN Tower itself, 3D printed Drake can go anywhere With You.

The figurine is 3d printed from a full-color sandstone material and is actually pretty reasonably priced at $29.99 ($37.64 CAD for Drake’s dedicated Canadian fans). I might even buy *6* of them! A blinged out 14k gold version of the Drake figurine can also be purchased, though it will set you back a bit more at $500.

The beauty of the 3D printed Drake figurine is that with it you can make your own and personalized Drake memes. You want Drake sitting on your pillow looking forlorn? Done. And no need for photoshop! You want to see Drake riding on your dog? Easy! Drake on a kitchen shelf with your mom? Why not!

Don’t worry though, Drake seems to enjoy his meme-status. As he recently explained in an interview with Instagram, “I have become the most memed person aside from the Michael Jordan crying face. I love that I’m the guy that doesn’t take himself too seriously. I like laughing even if it’s at my expense. It doesn’t feel like it’s necessarily malicious or hurtful stuff. I’m conscious of it. Even with the ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’ cover, when everyone took the font — that’s just our culture right now. I really enjoy it more than watching television. It brings joy to my life, and I hope it brings joy to other people’s lives too.”

So if you want to bring more joy to Drake’s life, you can find the 3D printed figurine of him here. Personally, I can’t wait to run through the 6 with my (3D printed) woes.
