Los Angeles conceptual artist and designer Matthew Senna has gilded Drake's Air Jordan 10s "OVO" in literal pure, solid gold.

The VIEWS rapper posted the golden sneakers on his Instagram and at a weighty 100 pounds, the kicks are an exclusive one of one.

The God behind these glorious sneakers, MSenna, is more known for his bronzed conceptualized Air Jordans 3, 5, and 11. His sculpted kicks are not to be worn but rather utilized as a centerpiece in the home or workplace of sneakerheads alike. Each classic Air Jordan silhouette he's created carries a hefty price tag of anywhere between $4,750 to a whopping $10,000.

Late last year, the artist gifted a pair of bronzed "Study 001" or Air Jordan 1s sculpture to Chicago rapper Common in celebration of his Oscar nomination which he and John Legend ended up winning for best original song for "Glory" in the Ava DuVernay-directed film Selma.

It's safe to assume Drizzy's 24K kicks are not up for sale and will more than likely be safely tucked away at his highly-esteemed YOLO Estatesor at his mom's house. According to GQ, the cost of these golden never-to-be-worn beauties lie somewhere in the $2 million price range.
