Hip-hop star Wiz Khalifa has found a new joint to call home.

The rapper and songwriter of “Rolling Papers” and “Blacc Hollywood” fame this week closed on a home in Encino, The Times has learned. The sale price was $3.4 million, or about $100,000 shy of the asking price.

The contemporary-style house, built last year, features a 9-foot pivoting front door, a floating staircase and 24-foot-high ceilings in the common rooms. Pocketing glass doors open from the living room, which has a fireplace and a wine bar, to a covered patio space that overlooks the swimming pool.


A center-island kitchen, a formal dining room, a home theater and an office fill out the main floor. The upstairs master suite, one of five bedrooms and 6.25 bathrooms, has an oversized closet with a jewelry island.

Wrap-around balconies, an open-air terrace lounge and a pool house create additional living space outdoors. There’s also an outdoor kitchen.

The property had been on the market since July 2018, records show.

Khalifa, whose legal name is Cameron Jibril Thomaz, has collaborated with such artists as Big Sean, Snoop Dogg and the late Mac Miller. Last year, the 31-year-old released his sixth studio album, “Rolling Papers 2,” which debuted at No.2 overall on the Billboard 200.
