He did say he was getting rich.

Rapper Tauheed Epps, known as 2 Chainz and formerly Titi Boy, just bought a house in Hollywood Hills for $2.45 million, Page Six reported.

The Mediterranean pad spans 1,400 square feet and was once owned by Grammy-winning guitarist Steve Vai, who dubbed the residence “Mothership Studio.”

With three bathrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, the four-story spread also includes an open kitchen-and-living-room area that opens up to a raised patio and an expansive recording studio with its own entrance, kitchen, full bathroom and lounge area. The studio has been rented out to the likes of Slash, Eddie Van Halen and Ozzy Osbourne.

Vai purchased the home for $330,000 in 1987 and sold it for $1.5 million in 2015. Its new owner listed it again last month, after extensive renovations, for $2.5 million. It was only the market for two days, according to the gossip paper. [Page Six]Cathaleen Chen
