That’s a rap!
More than a year after rapper Lil Wayne shelled out $15.4 million for a California mansion, he’s looking to say goodbye to his spread in the Sunshine State.
Born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., the singer has listed his contemporary waterfront home in Miami Beach, Florida, for $29.5 million.
If he scores anywhere near the asking price, he’ll walk away with a nice profit. Wayne, 40, purchased the seven-bedroom, 11-bathroom, newly built estate for $16.8 million in 2017.
Located in the exclusive guard-gated Allison Island — a roughly 35-acre island in Biscayne Bay — the property spans more than 10,600 square feet.
Dubbed a “tropical modern masterpiece,” amenities include a media room, a wine cellar, a movie theater and 110 feet of water frontage.
Features include 22-foot-high ceilings in one of the living areas with sliding doors that open onto the backyard overlooking a pool, outdoor dining spaces and a cabana. There is a second family room and a junior suite with a private terrace, according to the listing.
The chef’s kitchen comes with custom Italian cabinetry with separate staff quarters.
Meanwhile, the primary suite comes with dual baths, a walk-in closet, a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling windows with a terrace.
While it’s unclear why he is listing the property, it may have something to do with the not-so fond memories of the city. In November 2020, he was charged in Miami with illegal possession of a gun as a convicted felon.
Facing a maximum of 10 years in prison, President Donald Trump pardoned him before leaving office.
The Wall Street Journal was the first to report on the news.
Cyril Matz of Douglas Elliman holds the listing.
Ex-Brit turned Manhattan resident since 2008.
