: MediaTakeOut.com obtained pics of 50 Cent's mansion - it's up for sale. If you're thinking about buying it, please tell them you saw it here. We'd really appreciate getting a commission on the sale...
This house is amazing... and I gotta give it to 50, this is a very smart thing to do. All that house for one person just isn't necessary I don't care how rich you are. What you need 32 bathrooms for? (Don't know if thats the right number but I know it's a lot) Mike Tyson went broke trying to live there. He might as well grab a highrise in NYC just like Jigga, less maintenance and definitely less money.
That's ridiculous and so ostentatious. I would use a fraction of 18.5 Mil to build my own house and put the rest in variable annuities and mutual funds and long term growth stocks and watch my money multiply. Black folks need to wise up about wealth.
I understand what you are saying email2michael but if you knew the whole story he bought that house for half of what he is selling it for, and to sell it for that and gain that much profit thats a good investment. Go 50!
right on MissJamaica... 50 may be a lot of things, but he is def a great business man... just look at how his career skyrocketed. He knows how to make money and selling this house is just another way to make his pockets fatter.
THIS SPOT IS BAD.ITS ASHAME HE IS SELF-CORRUPTING HIS CAREERIS THAT WHY HE IS SELLING.GROW-UP DUDE AND RIGHT SOME REAL RAPP,WITH YOUR CORNEY-ASS SONG.CANDY SHOP,AMUSEMENT PARK.WHATS NEXT MERRY-GO-ROUND!
Hating 50cent will only get him richer. And he sure knows how to play the game, get the dumb niggas to hate him and THEN make his $$$. And that's what you call a smart man to all you dumb motherfuckers above me hating on FIF....
Oh and CUUURTIS will be in stores...... Then CAMERON CAN SUCK A PHAT DICK.
I cosign with email2michael, I have no idea what the hell celebs do with these big ass houses, like why do one or two people need a house like that? but hey to each its own, but I will do what you stated email2michael, but you know these lavish living celebrities....
50 paid Mike Tyson ex-wife 4.1 million for the home, he stayed in it 2-3 years and now wants 18.5 million. I wished my house would quadruple in 2-3 years. Stupid azz Mike Tyson paid $3 million for the home, paid an additional $18 million to upgraded it and lost it in the divorce for $1 dollar.
ooohh 18.5 mil hold on a second let me run to the bank ill be back gots to gets this house... rolling my eyes at my self. i agree with a lot of u guys he is a good business man or he is being adivsed by good people.
Even if I had Oprahs money I wouldnt dare own let alone live in a house that size!! Why are houses like that even built? What the heck does anyone need that for and yep im off the subject but some things just arent necessary!!
I can't stand 50 but he is indeed a smart business man. I never understood why celebs buy these big mansions, especially if you don't have a big family. I guess it's they way of saying they "made it". The house is bananas !!!!
to emailtomicheal, oh please, stocks plunge everday, mutual funds aren't maturing as prosperous as they used to and if someone wants to spend their money on houses (which realty is the jump off right now) then so be it.
Dam people hate on 50. But I look at him as some type of inspirration! Imagine he came from practically nothing to make something and generate money and money generating material that could potentially, hopefully pass on to his childrens, children. I do not totally agree with his total lifestyle. But hell it beats punching a clock for the man!Unfortunantley he does generate money for the "man" as well! Cant hate on that!
I am in no way a 50 cent fan, but dude got a pretty good business mind. He pretty much owns everythig h endorses. or at least gets paid from it. he paid 3.9 for the house from Tyson old flame. When it is sold that is another 15 million he gone make, you damn right he selling, who wouldn't. I can say he took some of his knowledge from the hood and applied it to his business principles, so far so good.
Actually 50 doesn't live there by himself all his boys and artists live with him.Why would he need all those rooms for himself?And he is a smart business man,Cam'rons dumbass tried to be an ass and make fun of his name CURTIS and now he named his album that so that dumb f uck is out in the streets promoting his sh!t for him LMAO!!That why Cam stays in the hood because he can't afford to get out!Oh and Jimmy officially runs Dipset!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Looks like Eminem wants some of his money back. :)
Besides, Fruity, I mean 50 was a horrible neighbor. If the people in the neighborhood could come up with the money as a collective unit and buy it, they would just to see him get the hell out of Dodge.
oh wow, I see from one of the comments that someone actually disagreed with email2michael for once..lol..I see both sides of the coin..its ridiculous to buy a place like this because we all know the industry is fickle and the people who are hot now might be working at Wal-Mart 5 years from now..even the ones who invested in business arent safe because many times they are ill advised and those ventures or investments go belly up..Michael Jackson is broke and has to borrow money from his rich friends..and hes an icon, not some rich rapper..hes on a whole higher level than 50, Mike has been in the business since he was a kid, and Thriller was the best selling album of all time..but he spent his money unwisely and now look where he is.. on the flip side, you only live once and you cant take it with you when youre gone..Im sure 50's kids have enough money tucked away for college and future savings..I hope! plus we all know that when you come from nothing, the temptation to go all out is too great..I might have acted a fool and bought sh*t that was ridiculous too..we're thinking like working class people, so we tend to think more sensibly
I agree with one of the comments above..that Candy Shop joint was corny as hell..lol..and 50 needs to shut the f*ck up and stop making beef just for fun..hes going to end up 6 feet under with Biggie and Pac..50 is really wilding out these days
50's gonna use the profit from this house and buy Irv Gotti's house just to buy it because he lives in LA now but "He Run New York" LOL, na, Jay runs New York but 50 holds a little weight, he's one of the three NY Giants, The others are Diddy and Jigga of course.
Cam'ron if your reading this. Please take a look at 50's pool. Now that is a real pool not that lil kiddy pool you have. Do y'all remember when Cam told the camera man "get a picture of my pool" like his pool was big. LMBAO!!!
I AGREE WITH ALL THE PPL CONGRATULATING 50. EXPECIALLY NEWKIDINDC. SOME LOOSERS ARE STILL HATING ON HIM INSTEAD OF LEARNING SOME BUZ SENSE FROM HIM. AN OH YEA. DUBYA IS A FOOL!!! STILL LAUGHIN AT THAT COMMENT. IT WAS VERY FUNNY
I like to see a black man come up. People don't realize that the yearly taxes on a house like this are outrageous. Living in something this big would scare me, there's all kinds of places for people to hide in your house.
Buying that house was a stupid move in the first place but you cant blame a brotha for wanting to floss his newfound cash. 5-0 been around long enough now to learn from his mistakes & he shouldn't have no problem selling it to another young dummy who wants to make the same kind of statement 50 thought he was making by buying this mansion.
@NewarkNword, how is buying that house a stupid move on 50's part? He brought the house for 4.2 mil and has it on the market for 18.5 mil. He probably get will get an offer between 15 and 18 mil. He's going to make a profit on the house. So tell me again, how is this a stupid move on his part????????
Iliked thegigi2007´s post.
