Property website Trulia reports that the rapper purchased his neighbouring mansion in Hidden Hills, California for $2.85 million (£2.15m), having bought his house next door in 2012 for $7.7 million (£5.8m).
Drake’s new four-bedroom, five-bathroom property is described as “a charming ranch-style house tucked away on a peaceful cul-de-sac… [with] an open floor plan, hardwood floors, high ceilings… multiple fireplaces and a top-of-the-line gourmet kitchen.” It has a swimming pool, 800-square-foot guesthouse and a small pool house.
Fans have speculated that the business decision was inspired by Drake’s own lyric in Future’s 2015 track ‘Where Ya At’, which sees him rap: “I’ll buy the neighbours’ house if they complain about the noise”. Listen to that song beneath.
Meanwhile, Drake’s tour bus was recently the scene of a robbery, with a man taking off with $3m (£2.25m) of jewellery.
The burglary comes as Kanye West has confirmed that he and Drake are making a joint album, five years after West and Jay Z’s joint album ‘Watch The Throne’.
Their collaboration follows West and Jay Z appearing as The Throne on ‘Pop Style’ on ‘Views’, with Drake returning the favour by co-writing ’30 Hours’ on West’s album ‘The Life Of Pablo’.
