Deconstructing 22 Mansions Owned By Rappers
 

 
image
Jay-Z >

Although he may have an apartment in the Trump he’s only slept in once, Hov’s also got a sweet little Spanish Colonial house on the Miami waterfront. And by “little,” we mean that it barely passes as a textbook mansion at 8,000 square feet—that’s chump change for the King Of New York
image
Eminem >

Em keeps it simple with a shingle-style mansion out in the boonies of his native Michigan. Note the modern influence of the property with a k!ller bouncy castle at the back—so chic.
image
Dr. Dre >

The upsides to Dre’s crib? It’s an elegant post-modern pad with a sweet infinity pool that overlooks the Los Angeles skyline. The downside? It overlooks the Los Angeles skyline, so good luck trying to enjoy that view through all the smog.
image
Kanye West >

Yeah, Yeezy may have said in “New Slaves” that he moved his family out to France, but Kim Kardashian and he still own the title to this Mediterranean revival-style mansion out in Malibu. Yeezy does lose points for having a house that’s the same color as one of Craig Sager’s suits, though.
image
Diddy >

Diddy’s house is somewhat of an oddity, as it blends the symmetrical window openings of Georgian revival architecture with 20th century American neo-eclectic stylings. All we can really say is that it’s pretty baller despite being located in New Jersey.
image
Diddy (The Hamptons, NY) >

What, you thought Diddy only had one crib? Fat chance. Above is the Bad Boy’s post-modern Hamptons pad, which is without a doubt the perfect location for a Ciroc-funded white clothing party
image
Birdman >

Birdman balled out on this 19,000-square-foot Palm Beach villa, copping the crib from producer Scott Storch in 2011. Note the ridiculous amount of Roman-style pillars in the courtyard—that’s elegance at its peak
image
Lil Wayne >

Unlike the plethora of pillars that make up Birdman’s place, Weezy’s house sticks to a simpler style. Notice the pool on the waterfront move—only stars like Wayne can get away with that

Will Smith >

The former Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air earns the distinction of owning the only house on this list that is pueblo style in its construction. Like a real adobe pueblo, it has the look of being made from sand and clay. Unlike a real adobe pueblo, it cost the Smith’s $20 million.
Snoop Dogg >

Snoop keeps it super-Cali with a Mar Del Plata-style crib that fuses Spanish Colonial roofing with West Coast-style ranch living. But living under powerlines? That’s an amateur move for any homeowner.
Nelly >

The Country Grammar superstar keeps it relatively less country with a massive French Colonial-inflected abode. However, somebody better tell Nelly that his lawnmower’s blade is too close to the ground—that grass is looking barren.
50 Cent >

Although we’ll be forever thankful for Cam’ron for calling it “a hand-me-down Tyson,” 50 Cent’s Connecticut mansion is no shanty. The G-Unit rapper’s 52-room villa is one of the few mansions that actually lives up to the traditional definition of a mansion by containing a ballroom within (it’s actually a nightclub in Fif’s case, but we’ll chalk that up to a generational gap).

Rev Run >

The Run-DMC legend’s Châteauesque pad should look familiar, as it was heavily featured in his reality show Run’s House. Despite its familiarity to many fans, it’s still one of the most impressively swanky residences on the list
Tyga >

The YMCMB rapper apparently comes from the Birdman school of property owning—the more pillars there are, the better the pad. With a traditionally Spanish Colonial-style roof and yellow-tinted exterior, Tyga’s house makes it loud and clear that the “Rack City” rapper is a native to the West Coast.
Joe >

Despite being located in Plantation, Florida, Joey Crack’s crib adheres closer to the Mediterranean revival school of architecture. However, we’re not so sure that the Bronx rapper will be staying around those parts much longer, as his current tax problems may force him to trade his crib for an 8′x12′ cell.

Ludacris >

We’re not going to knock Luda’s Georgian revival-style mansion—it looks like an incredible crib, no doubt. But what we will say is this: Luda, get your lawn care game up, or at least get some Scott’s Miracle Gro.
Wyclef Jean >

Clef’s house stands apart from his hip-hop peers’ standard mansions with its saltbox-style frame, but it definitely goes toe-to-toe with any other MC’s crib with regard to size. You might also recognize the pad’s driveway from this little gem of an image
Juicy J >

Apparently, Juicy J fully adopted the West Coast lifestyle after snagging that Academy Award in 2006. The Three 6 Mafia alum and current Taylor Gang representative keeps it clean with a Tuscan-style spot out in Sherman Oaks
2 Chainz

We’ve gone into detail in the past about 2 Chainz’s side hustle as a landlord, so it comes as no surprise that the G.O.O.D. Music rapper is k!lling it with a Federal-style residence. The vines make the exterior look like it’s straight out of a fairy tale.
2 Chainz (Palmetto, GA) >

One of 2 Chainz’s other properties—located in Palmetto, Georgia—is a decidedly less ornate “McMansion” of the Georgian revival-style. Still, “less ornate” is very much an understatement, as it clocks in at over 5,000 square feet with a pool, patio and indoor fountain

Rick Ross >

Rozay keeps it more or less low-key with Spanish Colonial-style villa in his native Florida. Regardless of the mansion’s fine exterior, it’s Ross’ attention to detail on the inside—including the use of choice Italian marbles around the pool—that make it an exceptional abode.
Drake >

While it’s difficult to tell exactly from what school or architecture Drake’s house is derived—all we can really see is a traditionally shingled roof—one thing stands out from it: That pool is awesome. You don’t put a full-blown waterfall in your backyard and not back it up with an equally excellent exterior

@ Joe Budden


Didn't Fat Joe sell that house?


I would probably want a crib with a nice yard, but sh*t I would want millionaire neighbors, who would will let you hold 100k when times get hard and just to network with.

Birdman's house shows you that Scott Storch was getting that bread when he was hot. That's a great looking home. 50 & Tyga too.

you KNOW Birdman was able to take that property off of his hands (or the banks) for alot less than it was worth considerig all the sh*t Storch was going thru.

makes you wonder what else Storch had to unload at a deep discount just to keep his head above water.
