Just on the heels of being a newly minted billionaire, Kanye purchased his childhood home in Chicago’s South Shore neighborhood for about $225,000.01.
Ye’s late mother, Donda West, bought the home in the early 1980s and sold it in 2004..
“Earlier this month some permits were taken out for renovating the house. They had been a plan to demolish it. So, I checked through the documents in California, it turns out that Kanye West bought the house,” said Dennis Rodkin of Crain’s Chicago Business.
Reports say Kanye will have to add another Ksh 6 Million for repairs. But it shouldn’t be an issue for him with a reported net worth of $3 billion.
