Rapper Drake buys in Hidden Hills

The price of the party palace that rapper Drake bought in Hidden Hills last month has yet to make its way into the public record. Listed at $16.9 million in 2009, it was most recently set at $8.65 million.

Outside of its new owner, perhaps the striking feature of the nearly 3-acre property is the grotto-style swimming pool with back-lighted waterfalls and an 80-foot slide. Other outdoor amenities include a tennis court, stalls for five horses, a riding arena, a mechanic bull and a viewing pavilion.

The 12,500 square feet of living space include a 24-seat theater, a game room, a spa/massage room, a wine cellar with tasting room, six bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.


Drake, 25, recently passed Jay-Z as having the most No. 1 singles on Billboard’s R&B/hip hop chart. Among his albums are “So Far Gone,” “Thank Me Later” and “Take Care,” which was released last year.

The property previously sold in 2003 for $2.775 million, before it was rebuilt into an estate.
