Kendrick Lamar Buys $40 Million Brentwood Mansion After Feud with Drake Ends

Days after his explosive rap feud with Drake concluded, Kendrick Lamar made headlines again with a lavish real estate purchase. The Wall Street Journal reported that the Pulitzer-winning rapper has agreed to buy a 16,000-square-foot mansion in Brentwood, Los Angeles, for $40 million. The property was sold by a trust linked to Viet Dinh, the former Chief Legal and Policy Officer of Fox Corporation.

The mansion’s previous owners had acquired it for $19.5 million in 2019, meaning Lamar is set to pay more than double the initial cost once the deal is finalized.

Lamar’s major splurge came just days after Drake waved the white flag, ending their highly publicized rap feud with the release of “The Heart Part 6.” Throughout their feud, Drake had taken aim at Lamar’s personal life in his diss track “Family Matters,” mocking Lamar’s New York living situation and his relationship status.

“Why did you move to New York? Is it ’cause you living that bachelor life?/Proposed in 2015 but don’t wanna make her your actual wife/I’m guessing this wedding ain’t happening, right?/’Cause we know the girls that you actually like,” Drake rapped, suggesting Lamar lived alone in Brooklyn without his fiancée, Whitney Alford, the mother of his children.

Lamar did not hesitate to retaliate, dropping severe accusations against Drake in his hit “Not Like Us.” The track features biting lyrics about Drake’s alleged personal issues and his entourage:

“Say, Drake, I hear you like ’em young/You better not ever go to cell block one/To any b#### that talk to him and they in love/Just make sure you hide your lil’ sister from him/They tell me Chubbs the only one that get your hand-me-downs/And Party at the party playing with his nose now/And Baka got a weird case, why is he around?/Certified Lover Boy? Certified pedophiles,” Lamar rapped.

The feud, which had the hip-hop world buzzing, concluded with Drake’s release of “The Heart Part 6,” in which he signaled a desire to end the conflict.

“I don’t wanna diss you anymore, this really got me second-guessing. You could drop a hundred more records, I’ll see you later/Yeah, maybe when you meet your maker/I don’t wanna fight with a woman beater, it feeds your nature,” Drake responded, suggesting an end to their public sparring.

Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, CEO of Lamar’s former label, Top Dawg Entertainment (TDE), confirmed the end of the feud on social media. “This battle is over. A win for the culture, while keeping it all on wax. Especially when these publications try to make it something else. We proved them wrong. That’s a victory within itself. On another note, it’s time to wrap up this TDE anniversary compilation,” he tweeted.
