Seems as if Taurus “Polo G” Bartlett has been leveling up on the hip-hop scene. Not only did the rapper recently garner his biggest hit to date with the single “Rapstar” — a little ditty about his rise to fame and struggles experienced along the way, which debuted at the top spot on Billboard — but the rising rhymer also has bought a home for his mother in Atlanta, and even had enough left over to stream around $4.9 million into the purchase of a massive Mediterranean-style mansion in the San Fernando Valley community of Chatsworth.
Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Susana Mountains, on almost 2 acres of land in the exclusive 24-hour, guard-gated community of Indian Falls Estates — where Polo G’s neighbors include fellow rappers and producers DJ Mustard and Swae Lee — the hillside dwelling was built in 2018 and includes nearly 11,000 square feet of living space bedecked in porcelain tile floors, and coved, beamed and coffered ceilings throughout, as well as walls of French doors for seamless indoor-outdoor environs.
Giant wrought iron doors open into a soaring rotunda entry, where there’s a sweeping staircase framed with artisan ironwork. From there, the main level hosts a spacious, light-filled great room; formal living room with a custom wine closet and bar; formal dining room; billiard room; and large guest suite. The centerpiece, however, is a professional chef’s kitchen outfitted with a huge center island and Viking appliances, along with granite countertops contrasted against an onyx mosaic backsplash.
Six bedrooms are locating upstairs, including an opulent master retreat boasting a walk-in closet with custom built-ins, plus a bath equipped with a double shower and a standalone, circular jetted tub holding court in a rotunda area.
Once outside, the resort-like grounds are ideal for entertaining with an abundance of stone terraces and patios surrounding a large swimmer’s pool and spa, barbecue pavilion and lighted tennis court. There’s also a duo of garages, plus an oversized garage with room for 14 autos.
In addition to his success as a singer-songwriter, rapper and recording artist, the 22-year-old entertainer also has launched an AAU basketball team in his hometown of Chicago to help keep youth out of trouble, made the 2021 Forbes’ “30 Under 30” list and launched his own clothing line called Capalot. He’s set to release his third album titled “Hall of Fame,” this month, which will feature a collaboration with Nicki Minaj.
