In case you missed it, hip-hop is the most popular and profitable genre in the music business. It is a multimillion dollar industry that accounts for over one-third of all streaming worldwide. Yo Gotti, the “Recession Proof” rapper and CEO of a record company, is among the many who have benefited from that popularity. He recently spent a lot of money on a mansion in the guard-gated community of Westlake Village, which is also home to YouTube’s Trisha Paytas, Disney CEO Bob Chapek, NFL star Cooper Kupp, Heather Locklear, and WWE star The Miz.

Rapper and musician Gotti was born Mario Mims in Memphis, Tennessee, and has been doing music since the late 1990s. Nevertheless, compared to many contemporary viral acts, his rise to fαмє and wealth was more gradual; it required six albums and innumerable singles before his success was realized with the release of “The Art of Hustle” in 2016, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard 200 album chart, and “Rake It Up” with Nicki Minaj in 2017, which reached the top 10 on the нσт 100 singles chart. In addition to his playing career, Gotti is arguably most known for his work as a businessman and record executive. The 40-year-old formed Collective Music Group (CMG), a record label with headquarters in Nashville, where he currently holds the position of CEO.

The Westlake Village property, which has a Tuscan style, was specially constructed in 1999 for Bruce Kanter and his wife Marina. Bruce Kanter was the former CFO of Westwood One, a television firm. Before selling the estate to Gotti for $7.6 million, which records show was actually $100,000 more than the asking price, the couple resided in the mansion for more than 20 years. This suggests there was competition for the estate.

Re/Max’s Jordan Cohen One person controlled the listing, while Onyx Realty’s Patrick Michael and Jonathan Massaband represented the buyer.

The expansive property, which spans three full acres and has a direct view of golf greens and a small artificial lake, is hidden by electronic driveway gates and a wall of thick trees.

The mansion has six bedrooms with ensuite baths spread across more than 10,000 square feet of living area, according to the listing. Inside, the formal living and dining rooms have large windows overlooking the surrounding mountains, and a central skylight crowns the spacious foyer.

The interiors, which are primarily beige and brown, also feature a large kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, an island with granite tops, and a pσt rack that, depending on your height and point of view, might be either a plus or nєgativє amenity.

The creative ceiling treatments, hardwood and stone floors, and separate fireplace in the games/bonus area are further features of this one-story home. A dark stone bespoke bar top overlooks the fairway in the living area. The full-size fireplace in the master bath, which keeps people warm in the built-in tub or at the makeup vanity, is possibly the most unexpєcted feature of the enormous master suite.

The description describes the grounds as “resort quality,” with wraparound terraces perfect for large-scale gatherings. In addition, there is a separate kids’ area featuring a playroom, bear-shaped topiaries, and vegetable plantings. Manicured boxwoods and dozens of rosebushes are features of formal gardens. Numerous private seating spaces and stone fountains can be found at one corner or another. The home also features a second reflecting pool in the backyard and an L-shaped swimming pool with an infinity edge and views towards the west.
