Despite a lack of public visibility over the last little while, during which time he's supposedly been hard at work on his next album, Kanye West cashed out nicely on a real estate investment that, at one time, didn't look like it would ever sell.

According to Forbes, Kanye West was finally able to sell his four-bedroom bachelor pad located in the Hollywood Hills. The property had been in limbo for some time, having been listed on the market for seven years (!) without any significant activity. Kanye purchased the property in 2003 for $1.7 million and had originally listed the home at $3.9 million, but clearly that price wasn't enough to lure any serious buyers into the fold. As it stands, he had to lower that price point by nearly a million dollars, unloading it for a reported $2.95 million. Maybe not has much as the rapper was hoping to score for the sweet bachelor pad, but at the end of the day it's still a nice investment for Mr. West.

Kanye's public profile has taken a turn for the pulseless in recent months, avoiding the spotlight expect when it comes to spending time with his wife, Kim Kardashian and their growing number of children, another of which is expected in the early stages of 2018. As was mentioned before, the rumor is that Kanye may have some new music coming down the pipeline sooner than people think, but that methodical process was given an extra jolt of life from the outside looking in on Monday, when CyHi The Prynce teamed with the hip-hop legend for a track titled "Dat Side." The piano laden instrumental provides a solid backbone upon which rests a catchy refrain, where West helps CyHi silence the haters with one almost continuous stretch of vocals. The song should amp up anticipation for another full-length project form CyHi, who has also been rather quiet for an extended period of time.

Will the vibe of this new collaboration be something that Kanye mines for use on his upcoming solo work? Or should be go in a completely different, uncharted direction? Let us know what you think below.
