MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Could Kanye West buy Graceland?

A British newspaper says the hip-hop mogul may be in the market to by the King of Rock 'n Roll's former home in Memphis.

In an article published on Friday, the Daily Star quotes a insider for West's baby mama Kim Kardashian as saying, “Kanye thinks owning Graceland and restoring it to its former glory would cement his place in showbiz history”
