Kanye West wants to buy Elvis Presley''s Graceland mansion



London, Aug 2 (PTI) Rapper Kanye West wants to buy Elvis Presley''s Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee, for reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

The ''New Slaves'' rapper is a huge fan of the late rock ''n'' roll singer and would love to splash out on the iconic mansion in Memphis, Tennessee, which is still filled with the singer''s possessions.

The 14-acre property is also the final resting place of the ''Love Me Tender'' singer, as well as his parents Gladys and Vernon Presley, and his grandmother.

It is designated a US national landmark and over 600,000 fans visit each year to pay tribute to their idol.

"There have been constant whispers that it''s due to go on the market, as long as it stays open to the public and as a place for Elvis fans to visit. Kanye is really excited about the possibility of owning it. He thinks it would be really cool if he, Kim and their two-month-old baby North West lived there, at least some of the time," a source said.
