Pick Your Poison: Thursday 7-19-12
So Drake might not be the richest hip hop star around today, as I would think Jay-Z and Kanye West have the #1 and #2 spots locked up on that, but he’s still got plenty of money. As rich people often do, they like to buy nice things. Well, Drake recently bought a new home for a cool $7.7 million. Actually, it’s not so much a home as it is a ranch. The place has been on the market since 2009, where its starting asking price was $27 million. In other words, he bought it at less than a third of what it was originally going for. This ranch includes six bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a 28-person movie theater, a gaming room, a spa and massage room, a gym, a wine cellar, a tennis court, a volleyball court, an equestrian ring, stables, and three acres of land. If I had the money I probably would have paid at least $8 million for all that. Anyways, it looks super impressive and cool, so take a look at this photo set and gaze in awe at the waterfalls, grotto and outdoor fireplaces. Man, it must be nice to be rich. Save some money, and maybe someday a house like that could be yours. A good way to keep costs down is with some free music, which Pick Your Poison is happy to provide. In today’s batch, don’t miss tracks from Arcadia Gardens, Deerhoof’s remix of AU, Cate Le Bon, The Demos, The History of Panic, The Mommyheads, and Twin Cabins. Plenty of downloads, and a tiny Soundcloud section today, though I do recommend streaming that Om Unit track, it’s good.
