Cash Money Records boss Birdman reportedly dropped nearly $15 million on a Miami mansion which consists of nine bedrooms, pool, gym and more luxuries.
Details of Baby's unexpected purchased hit the Internet Sunday (October 14) morning.
Music Mogul Birdman spent $14.5 mil in cash money for a Miami mansion the size of a Four Seasons. The rapper -- who co-founded Cash Money Records -- bought the 19,000-sqaure-foot pad last month -- which sits on the ultra exclusive Palm Island.The 9-bedroom, 17-bath palace is amazing -- 25-foot-ceilings ... a below ground pool ... an outdoor pool with cabana ... a theater, gym, spa area ... in-house massage room ... 100 feet of waterfront AND a private dock. Ya know, for your awesome boat. (TMZ)
According to reports, fallen music producer Scott Storch previously occupied the mansion.
FUN HOUSE HISTORY: The mansion belonged to music producer Scott Storch until it was taken away from him in foreclosure 2 years ago. It was snatched up by the inventor of Rockstar energy drinks for $6.75 mil ... and then flipped to Birdman for a huge profit. Oh the rich. We hate them. (TMZ)
Known for being a big spender, Birdman made headlines of buying new luxury vehicles for Lil Wayne, Mack Maine and Cash Money co-founder Slim.
It was just one week ago that we saw footage of Birdman buying matching Bentleys for Lil Wayne and Mack Maine, but the Cash Money CEO's giving ways just can't be stopped. Now, he's bought his brother/Cash Money co-founder Slim a brand-new Maybach. "My brother, money can't buy the love and respect I have for that n*gga," Bird said in the video. "[He means] everything on Earth to me. I'd give that n*gga my blood, my veins, my vessels. He's the coolest n*gga in the world -- he's the head n*gga in charge. He's the coolest n*gga I ever met in my life. Money can't buy love." (Complex)
Back in 2008, the music executive gave Wayne $1 million for his birthday.
Birthday boy Lil Wayne was left stunned when mentor and pal Birdman handed him $1 million at his 26th birthday party in Miami on Tuesday night. Stars DJ Khaled and Akon looked on in amazement as the "Got Money" hitmaker opened a briefcase Birdman handed him and discovered it was full of crisp new bills. A stunned party guest says, "Lil Wayne was left speechless. He was almost in tears when he hugged his friend. I mean, who wouldn't like $1 million as a birthday gift?" The Club Mansion bash was a lavish affair all round 00 one of the party's main attractions was an ice sculpture full of frozen $100 bills. (SF Gate)
