It wasn’t just because they love the sun

About a year ago, New York native Jay Z and wife Beyoncé abandoned New York City as their primary residence and headed to west coast. The couple, who still own a ridiculously expensive loft in the trendy Tribeca neighborhood, now spend a good part of the year in the golden state, where they reside in a ridiculously large mansion.
