West Coast rapper Kendrick Lamar is keeping some money in the bank after reportedly opting out of owning a luxury mansion and going with a low-key home outside of Los Angeles. #PennyPincher
According to reports, K. Dot spent over $500,000 for his new four-bedroom home.
According to official records, Lamar recently purchased a modest 4-bedroom home in Eastvale, CA for $523,500, a far cry from his hip hop brethren posted up in multimillion-dollar mansions in L.A.’s ritzy Bel Air neighborhood or Atlanta’s Buckhead. The lot where the house is located is listed at roughly 7,800 square feet, so the house is much smaller — and it’s also located a good hour east of Los Angeles, smack in the pleasantly affordable middle of nowhere (relatively speaking).

Recent reports revealed Lamar’s Aftermath boss Dr. Dre had plans to drop millions on a Los Angeles mansion.
Dr. Dre FELL IN LOVE with Tom Brady’s mega-mansion in L.A. — and put an offer to buy the house almost immediately after it hit the market back in March … TMZ Sports has learned. We broke the story … Tom and Gisele listed the 18,700 sq. ft. Brentwood estate they custom built from the ground up for $50 MILLION after barely spending any time living in the place. We’re told there were “multiple interested parties ready to put offers on the house” … but Dre swooped in with a solid offer first … and T&G decided to sell to the Doc. (TMZ)
