Kendrick Lamar will buy a $40 million mansion in Los Angeles

Kendrick Lamar is closing in on purchasing a huge property in Los Angeles worth more than $40 million.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the rapper is considering a property in the affluent Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles that has eight bedrooms and 16,000 square feet. In addition to the main house, the mansion also has a wine cellar, a gym, a swimming pool and a guest house.

The home is currently owned by a trust tied to Viet Dinh, former chief legal and policy officer at Fox Corp., and his wife, Jennifer Ashworth Dinh. The couple bought the home for $19.5 million in 2019, before he was involved in a legal strategy that resulted in a landmark settlement between Fox Corp. and Dominion Voting Systems.

The Dinhs reportedly declined to comment on the pending sale and Lamar could not immediately be reached for comment. If the Lamar acquisition goes through, it would be among the most expensive real estate purchases in Los Angeles in 2024 so far.

The past few months have been a whirlwind for Kendrick Lamar, as the rap star became embroiled in a feud with fellow hitmaker Drake that erupted after years of competitive tension between the two. In March, Lamar appeared on Metro Boomin and Future’s single “Like That,” in which he sent direct takes to both Drake and J. Cole in response to their 2023 collaboration, “First Person Shooter.”

Drake then returned with the release of his own album “Push Ups,” which sparked several responses from both sides. Lamar responded with the scathing cuts “Euphoria,” “6:16 In LA,” and “Meet The Grahams.”

However, Lamar’s latest retort, “Not Like Us,” has become the biggest solo hit of his career, shooting to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and breaking numerous streaming records.
