50 Cent Puts $18.5 Mil Price Tag On Mansion, Gives MTV Free Tour
Fif's 48,000 square foot Farmington, Conn. mansion, which includes 19 bedrooms, 35 bathrooms, a movie theatre, a custom Gucci billiards room, an in-house elevator, both indoor and outdoor pools and a strip club, will be the focus of the entire episode.
When asked about how the house, which was previously owned by Mike Tyson, looked when he purchased it 50 told the Associated Press, "It kind of had a 'Miami Vice' feel."
"It was like turquoise blue on the floor and purple. It was crazy looking when I got there."
Putting his own flavor in the spot, 50 had a nightclub built right inside the house to test out new songs as soon as he records them.
"Right from the studio I will go into the nightclub area ... in order to play it and see what it would sound like in a nightclub," he said.
With 19 bedrooms Fiddy has no problem allowing guests. Several members of his entourage live in the home, including Tony Yayo, who along with crew member Lloyd Banks will be co-hosting tonight's episode of ''Cribs.''
"I'll let them stay on the other side of the house and not actually see them for a day or so, because the house is broken up in three sections - the east side, the west side and then the center of the home," he said.
Yet, despite all the amenities Fif may be looking for new digs soon. The Queens-bred MC says that he has grown tired of the two-hour commute from Farmington to New York City and is putting the home on the market for a reported $18.5 million.
And this time he plans on going a little simpler with his next home purchase.
"It might be a lot smaller," he said of his future house. "The basics, maybe four or five bedrooms."
In related news, SoundScan rival Kanye West also recently put his Beverly Hills pad on the market. Ye is reportedly asking for $8.69 million for the 35,000 square foot property.
Fans can catch 50's mansion before it's sold tonight at 10:30 p.m. EST on MTV.
