Once rappers reach a certain level, living lavishly is just part of the lifestyle and at this point, 50 years into the game, massive mansions and sprawling estates have become just as big a part of hip-hop culture as bars and beats. In fact, quite a few rappers own some of the most expensive homes in the country.

Drake's 50,000-Square-Foot Home in Toronto

Future, just like Lil Wayne before him, became the proud owner of a super swanky waterfront property in the sought-after Allison Island neighborhood of Miami last November for a cool $16.3 million. On the flip side, YoungBoy Never Broke Again chose a more reclusive home life with an epic homestead in the picturesque mountains of Utah. Luckily for YB, one could only assume that the ability to roam the hallways of an abode as luxurious as his makes being on house arrest just a tad bit easier.
