Here’s a little secret: Celebrities love to buy and sell real estate. (Frequently to each other!) Rappers and hip-hop artists often get in on the action, and you might be surprised by just how much square footage we’re talking about. Consider Kanye West and wife Kim Kardashian West, who own six homes in California and New York, NY, totaling more than 33,000 square feet. That’s a lot of space for the Kimye family of four.
To find out who’s really living large, Trulia looked at the homes of five kings and queens of hip-hop, then ranked them in order by the current value of their real estate portfolios. Can’t nobody hold them down, indeed.
