50 Cent remains one of the most influential rappers in the history of the hip-hop world. The legendary made a name for himself in several mediums such as games, movies, books and more. Be that as it may, sometimes Fif is known to make some questionable decisions that come back to haunt him. It seems he even ended up losing a ton of money after purchasing Mike Tyson’s old house.
After the release of his breakout 2003 album Get Rich or Die Tryin, 50 Cent went on to become one of the most established and beloved rappers of all time. He and his G-Unit members became overnight sensations.
With fame, came a lot of money. While speaking with Big Boy’s Neighborhood, the G-Unit leader revealed that he lost millions of dollars after buying a house that used to be Mike Tyson’s old home.
The 50,000-square-foot home had 21 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, an indoor pool, hot tub, green-screen room, indoor court, multiple game rooms, a recording studio and also a nightclub.
“The Tyson crib was like that, that was definitely it,” 50 Cent said after being asked if he had any financial regrets. “I paid $4.1 [million] and I sold it for $3 [million].
I had it for 14 years, the upkeep was about $700,00 a year.”
50 Cent also recently explained an interesting lyric from his iconic ‘In Da Club’ single. Fif is also working on an ‘8 Mile’ TV series in the future. The rapper/producer certainly has a lot of things to do this year and that’s all that matters to him.
