Kanye West has snagged a massive Wyoming property that was last on the market for $14 million, TMZ reports. It’s not clear how much West shelled out for the parcel — a massive 9,000-acre spread called Monster Lake Ranch because its two freshwater lakes are home to “monster trout” — but TMZ notes he didn’t pay full price.
Located outside the town of Cody, Wyo., (population 10,000), the ranch has eight lodging units, a restaurant, an event center and a space for meetings. There are also barns and corrals for horses.
West owns half of Monster Lake Ranch’s acreage and leases the other half from the federal government.
The property was listed on the website of auction house J.P. King. “Unfortunately, we are not able to comment on our clients, or on the purchasers of the properties we represent,” J.P. King’s marketing director wrote in an email.

Kanye West drops down some serious money for a property called Monster Lake Ranch. The asking price was $14 million for the huge chunk of land outside Cody, Wyoming. • The Ranch itself has 8 lodging units and is known for "monster trout" fishing. It has 2 fresh water lakes, a restaurant, an event center and meeting facilities. And — it's a ranch, right — so there are lots of horse barns, corrals and lots of horsies. ??
