Not following the norm of what society expects a "rapper" to do, Kendrick Lamar continues to set his own trends. Kendrick Lamar recently made a big purchase but didn't blow money lavish materialistic things. Kendrick just bought a house that doesn’t look like it was once owned by a billionaire drug lord. According to official records, Lamar recently purchased a modest 4-bedroom home in Eastvale, CA for $523,500, a far cry from his hip hop brethren posted up in multimillion-dollar mansions in L.A.’s ritzy Bel Air neighborhood or Atlanta’s Buckhead. The lot where the house is located is listed at roughly 7,800 square feet, so the house is much smaller — and it’s also located a good hour east of Los Angeles, smack in the pleasantly affordable middle of nowhere (relatively speaking). It’s a pretty big statement, even if Kendrick didn’t intend to make it. In the rap world, Kendrick stands virtually alone in his rejection of material temptations.
