Did Drake buy his neighbours’ house because they complained about the noise?

Rapper spent $2.85 million (£2.15m) on California mansion

Drake has reportedly bought his neighbours’ house and fans are linking his move back to one of his lyrics.

Property website Trulia reports that the rapper purchased his neighbouring mansion in Hidden Hills, California for $2.85 million (£2.15m), having bought his house next door in 2012 for $7.7 million (£5.8m).

Drake’s new four-bedroom, five-bathroom property is described as “a charming ranch-style house tucked away on a peaceful cul-de-sac… [with] an open floor plan, hardwood floors, high ceilings… multiple fireplaces and a top-of-the-line gourmet kitchen.” It has a swimming pool, 800-square-foot guesthouse and a small pool house.


Fans have speculated that the business decision was inspired by Drake’s own lyric in Future’s 2015 track ‘Where Ya At’, which sees him rap: “I’ll buy the neighbours’ house if they complain about the noise”. Listen to that song beneath.

Meanwhile, Drake’s tour bus was recently the scene of a robbery, with a man taking off with $3m (£2.25m) of jewellery.

The burglary comes as Kanye West has confirmed that he and Drake are making a joint album, five years after West and Jay Z’s joint album ‘Watch The Throne’.

Their collaboration follows West and Jay Z appearing as The Throne on ‘Pop Style’ on ‘Views’, with Drake returning the favour by co-writing ’30 Hours’ on West’s album ‘The Life Of Pablo’.
