Kanye Drops $7 Mill On Beverly Hills Crib, Works With Lil' Wayne
According to the Los Angeles Times, the Grammy-award-winning rapper/producer West dropped almost $7.2 million on the house, which was listed by Judi Schryro of Hilton & Hyland in Beverly Hills.
West's purchase marked the first occasion the home had been on the market in over 45 years. The 3,300 square foot two-story home, which was built in 1921, has six bedrooms and four bathrooms and sits on nearly an acre of manicured land.
Kanye is expected to release his third album, Graduation later this year. As previously reported, West has also been developing an HBO comedy series with producer/director Larry Charles (Borat, "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and "Seinfeld").
In other news, Kanyeezy's management team, Hip-Hop Since 1978, recently signed a deal with Lil' Wayne to co-manage the rapper. West, who has admitted on several occasions to being a big fan of Weezy's work, is expected to work on Wayne's highly anticipated The Carter 3 album.
