Hip-hop star Ludacris is so intent on spending his money wisely, he's now the owner of eight houses.

The NUMBER ONE SPOT rapper has invested in a range of properties across America, most of them being clustered around his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia.

Ludacris, who boasts a waterfall in the bedroom of his main residence, says, "Real estate is the thing these days. I travel a lot so I have to have 'em in the places where I travel the most. So I have (homes in) LA, Miami, New York, and like five in Atlanta. That's my main home."

Two of the Atlanta homes are used by Ludacris, real name CHRISTOPHER BRIDGES, while his friends and relatives reside in the other three.
