First came his album “College Dropout,” then “Late Registration.” Now, rap star Kanye West is gearing up for the release of “Graduation” later this year with a gift to himself: a Beverly Hills home purchased for close to $7.2 million.
The traditional-style home, with six bedrooms and four bathrooms in nearly 3,300 square feet, has park-like grounds of almost an acre in the flats of Beverly Hills. This was the first time the house, built in 1921, has been on the market in more than 45 years.
While buying the two-story house, the 29-year-old was also busy developing an HBO show with Larry Charles (“Borat,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Seinfeld”). West has won several Grammys, including for best rap album in 2005 and 2006, and is known for producing hit singles for hip-hop/R&B artists Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, Janet Jackson, Brandy, Dilated Peoples and John Legend. Earlier this year, West was named world’s best rap/hip-hop artist at the World Music Awards.
Judi Schryro of Hilton & Hyland, Beverly Hills, had the listing, and Alexander Davis of the same firm represented West in his home purchase, according to the Multiple Listing Service.
