    50 Cent's House Sold For $2.9 Million And I'm Jealous Of Its New Owner

    It was originally listed for $18.5 million and sold for less than $3 million.

    What's up internet??? This week marks a momentous occasion in real estate. 50 Cent has finally sold his Farmington, Connecticut mansion after having it on the market since 2007.

    It originally entered the market at an impressive $18.5 million, but then 2008 happened and the market tanked to hell.

    Now, you may be wondering: Why should I care about the fact that 50 Cent sold his house? Well, fellow internet user, I will tell you.

    THIS HOUSE SOLD FOR A FREAKING BARGAIN.

    He originally bought this colonial beauty from Mike Tyson in 2003 for $4.1 million.

    It sold for $2.9 million, 84% below its original asking price of roughly $18.5 million.

    Mr. Cent plans to donate all of the sale price to charity via his G-Unity Foundation.

    Now I get it, $2.9 million is still a shit ton of money, but let's look at what that $2.9 million gets you...

    A FOYER THAT LOOKS LIKE THIS.

    And where does that foyer lead to? 52 DIFFERENT ROOMS.

    Pretty sure I've entered fewer rooms in the span of my entire lifetime.

    WITH 19 BEDROOMS.

    That's enough to get a hotel business going, if you wanted to.

    AND 25 BATHROOMS.

    You and 24 friends could all need to pee at the same time and it wouldn't even be an issue.

    A GIANT OUTDOOR POOL.

    That also leads to its own private grotto, btw.

    A GIANT INDOOR POOL.

    In case you get tired of the outdoor pool.

    A NIGHTCLUB.

    You can find me in da club, bottle full of bub (in my own home).

    A HOME THEATER.

    So you can watch your own music videos or just stream The Office for the 800th time.

    NINE GOURMET KITCHENS.

    My kitchen doesn't even have a dishwasher.

    TWO BASKETBALL COURTS.

    Douglas Elliman / Via zillow.com

    Once again, one indoor and one outdoor. Just in case.

    CASINO-STYLE GAME ROOMS.

    Why go to Vegas when you can just go downstairs?

    A HOME GYM.

    Douglas Elliman / Via zillow.com

    Because going to the public gym is for peasants.

    YOUR OWN FREAKING POND COMPLETE WITH A FOUNTAIN IN THE MIDDLE AND A GUEST HOUSE.

    This house literally has its own house.

    ALL ENCLOSED BEHIND YOUR OWN PRIVATE GATE PROTECTED BY A REGAL LION STATUE.

    Naturally.

    TELL ME ALL THAT ISN'T A HUGE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK. LOOK ME IN THE EYES AND SAY IT TO MY FACE.

    What can we all take away from this? Number one: 50 Cent knows how to live (and how to give back). And Number two: Whoever bought his home is the thriftiest millionaire out there.

    That is all. Thank you.
