Lil Wayne has sold his luxury Miami mansion for a whopping $28 million price tag, which is a significant increase compared to what he paid for it six years ago.
According to TMZ, Weezy and his powerhouse real estate agency Douglas Elliman accepted a bid from a potential buyer on February 3 for $28 million, shortly after Wayne discounted his original $29.5 million listing.
The New Orleans mogul has long made South Beach his second home and built the estate exactly to his liking with seven massive bedrooms and 11 bathrooms — one more than he bragged about on his 2009 song “Steady Mobbin'” (“Got 10 bathrooms, I can shit all day, n-gga.”)
Wayne built the Allison Island home in 2017 for about $16.8 million, which paid for amenities such as a beautiful in-ground pool, outdoor kitchen, and open-air cabana. The tall glass windows give a picturesque view of the outside from nearly anywhere in the two-story house.
While he likely won’t be spending as much time in Miami anymore, TMZ‘s sources relayed that the Young Money boss has been living mostly on the West Coast in his Hidden Hills estate of late, which isn’t a bad place to call home during the winter months.
It was a busy Grammys weekend for Lil Wayne, who accepted the Global Impact Award at the inaugural Recording Academy Honors presented by the Black Music Collective, where he was praised by close friend and collaborator Drake.
“I know I probably get annoying with saying how much you mean to me and my family, but I think I speak on behalf of everybody when I say that our careers, our cadences, our melodies, maybe our face tats or our outfits or our decisions in general would not have been the same without your natural gift to just be yourself,” Drizzy said in a video tribute.
Last week, Wayne announced that he is teaming up with Young Money, Rolling Loud and Live Nation for a 28-city tour titled Welcome To Tha Carter.
The trek kicks off on April 4 at The Fillmore in Minneapolis and will continue through Detroit, Toronto, Houston, New York and other cities before wrapping in Los Angeles at The Wiltern on May 13.
