Kanye West is making moves again – and this time it appears to be literal. The award-winning artist and entrepreneur has listed his ranch in Cody, Wyoming, and other business properties there for sale, according to The Associated Press (AP).
West listed the ranch, advertised as Monster Lake Ranch, on Monday for $11 million with DBW Realty. The listing describes a one-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath, 3,450-square-foot property on 3,888 acres. It is located at 61 Nielson Road in Cody and shows JW Robinson as the listing agent.
Monster Lake Ranch has two freshwater trophy lakes. “The once in a lifetime property contains a BLM lease (Bureau of Land Management), equipment sheds, equine facility, livestock corrals, and hay meadows. The lodge, commercial kitchen, go cart track, and trophy trout fishing bring commercial opportunities. The views of the sandstone cliffs and Absaroka mountains make it a premier Wyoming ranch investment,” the listing states.

Are broader financial markets in a massive speculative bubble?
The twice-weekly newspaper, Cody Enterprise, confirmed that the ranch is West’s property. This listing comes nearly a month after “West put up his seven commercial properties off Big Horn Avenue for sale for more than $3.2 million,” Cody Enterprise reported.
When West bought the ranch in November 2019, he had lofty goals to bring economic development to the area, among other ideas on how to use the property. However, they will likely go unfulfilled.
Cody residents and Mayor Matt Hall told the New York Times they have seen little of Kanye West in months. While he expressed some disappointment at West’s apparently pending departure, Hall said he doesn’t think the city will suffer as a result.
“When somebody like that leaves, it’s unfortunate but I think we’ll all move on,” Hall said.
