Kendrick Lamar, who landed at #6 on Forbes' annual Hip Hop Cash Kings list in 2017, raking in $30 million, is diversifying his financial portfolio.
TMZ reports the rapper has purchased a mansion in Calabasas for $2.65 million. The mansion— which features 6-bedrooms, 6-bathrooms and is 5,400 square feet—is an investment property for Kendrick. The home also comes with a pool, giant backyard, double-sided fireplaces and a home gym.
Investment properties aside, it was reported last week that Kendrick has a biography on the way soon. Marcus J. Moore, who is a senior editor at Bandcamp will be writing the work titled, The Butterfly Effect: How Kendrick Lamar Ignited the Soul Black America. The book will discuss K.Dot's “rise to rap superstardom" and will be available on Touchstone Books.
While details about the specifics the book haven't dropped yet, a Kendrick biography isn't that surprising given the success other books focusing on the lives rap artists have had, including a recent one on Gucci Mane, The Autobiography Gucci Mane. That biography will now reportedly be turned into a feature film.
At any rate, if you want to check out the mansion Kendrick just purchased, you can head over to TMZ to take a look.
