Earlier in the week, buzz developed about 50’s massive real estate move.
50 just sold his 50,000 square foot pad — with a whopping 21 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms — for $3 million. A source close to the rapper tells us every penny from the sale will be donated to 50’s G-Unity Foundation … a project that provides grants to non-profit organizations that focus on improving the quality of life for low-income and underserved communities across the country.

Fif owned the dream home for over 15 years and paid over $60,000 in monthly expenses.
The musician, whose birth name is Curtis James Jackson III, purchased the property from former boxer Mike Tyson for $4.1 million in 2003, property records show. That deal set a still-standing record for the most expensive home ever sold in Farmington, which is about 80 miles north of Greenwich, according to appraiser Jonathan Miller. The estate was costing the rapper almost $70,000 a month to carry, including property taxes and mortgage payments, according to documents related to his Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing in 2015.

The decked-out crib has everything from a basketball court to a nightclub.
Approximately 50,000-square-foot, the 52-room compound is much larger with other homes in the town of Farmington. The original listing pictures show a basketball court with the logo for Jackson’s G-Unit hip hop group, and a night club decorated with murals depicting Jackson’s large back tattoo and of him wearing a bedazzled cross medallion and pointing a gun. The house also has game rooms, a recording studio, a home theater, an indoor pool and a conference center. (MarketWatch)
