50 Cent Drops $4 Mil From Mansion Price Tag

After having his mansion on the market for 2 years, 50 Cent has decided to make a little adjustment to his asking price in light of the current financial crisis.

The Hartford Courant reports that the G-Unit general is slashing the cost of the opulent estate – which used to belong to boxing champ Mike Tyson – to $14.5 million from $18.5 million.

“It’s the market,” Keller Williams Realty’s Deborah Orr said. “With a unique property, everyone acknowledges it’s difficult to pinpoint the perfect market price. We feel we need to stimulate some activity, and that was the intent of the price cut.”

While Fif shaved the price down 21 percent, the house, located in Farmington, Conn. will still be the most expensive in the area. 50 bought the 17-acre property back in ’03 for $4.1 million. It includes an helipad, a 40-person hot tub, two billiard rooms, a movie theatre and a club.

In related news the hip-hop mogul’s reality show “50 Cent: The Money and the Power” was recently dropped by MTV. The network decided to cancel the program due to it’s low ratings. – Elan Mancini

    I saw the house on a program or in a magazine…I dont remember which. The shit is way too big for my taste. It reminds me of a museum. I wouldnt need that much house.

    I smell demise. I was tellin my partner last night that 50 just isn’t hot anymore. When he used to speak people would actually listen. Now it seems like nobody is even acknowledging his existence in the rap game. What goes up, must come down!

    yeah, let me buy the big akward house in the middle of Nowhere,Conn. so I can diss rappers and hide in my house. Dude need to stick to selling Water. With Vitamins in it. And as far as rap goes, nigga look stressed and I think them Yayo blowjobs aint doin the trick no more. He gotta face it, no Interscope gotta face it, they had a two hit wonder with high profile co-signs. In Da Club and Wanksta is basically his start and his peak it was all downhill after that. But Shady is a shit label, Aftermath is a shit label, so G-Unit was bound to be turned to shit too. Promoting Yayo and dropping Game & Buck was when I realized G-Unit was a 50 cent ass kissing contest. I hope he stop after this next album flop. I predict he won’t even release it, or either the combination of debt and shame gone make him kill his self after he drop it, then the sales might reach gold. Or maybe he can sell Before I Shit My Pants over in Africa in the desert

    Look Barack is the president now… We’re now paying attention to shit that really matters.
    Like empowerment and the economy… fifty represented the ignorance in us and the the fact that he made a lot of money of of it but there’s a million other ways to acquire power and riches..BARACK IS THE CELEBRITY…NOTICE TOU HEARD DIDDY, JAY AND NAS SPEAK OPENLY ABOUT THEIR SUPPORT FOR BARACK…DIDN’T SEE 50 SAY ANYTHING! truth is 50 is a fake. Eminem is way better and had balls to endorse Barack…i don’t even like all the stuff em raps about but at least he speaks sometimes about real issues.
    50 just rode eminem and DR DRe’s Coattail…DRe and Eminem are scheduled to drop albums soon… 50 is planning again to ride that wave… but it won’t work!
