Just one month after an unfortunate ‘swatting’ hoax in March, 2015 in which a barrage of armed forces flooded Lil Wayne’s Miami Beach home, the luxury mansion was put up for sale. It seems that the well known rapper and swatting victim, Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. isn’t going to risk being dangerously pranked at this home again. Luckily, no one was home at the time of the hoax which greatly decreased the chances of someone getting hurt.

Miami Beach Police Department and spokesman, Ernesto Rodriguez were all expecting to find gunmen and people injured after someone reported that 4 people were shot in the waterfront home on La Gorce Island, but found an empty home instead. Although Lil Wayne was safely working on music in the recording studio during the swatting, the rapper decided to sell the Miami Beach home and lead a safe hoax­-free life.

Audio of the Lil Wayne swatting call obtained by TMZ can be found here. ­ Heed my warning as you might find yourself feeling disappointed; the amateur pranksters are not very creative with their choice in dialogue.

La Gorce Mansion on the Market

Considering the swatting hoax and other string of strange events such as the mysterious lurker, persistent caller and unsolicited prostitute, it’s ironic that the rapper has different motives for selling his luxury Miami Beach mansion. According to Carter’s broker, Ty Forkner, Lil Wayne’s decision had nothing to do with the rough times he had in the property throughout last year. His reasons for selling the unique home is because the Miami realty market is hot.

As of April last year, Lil Wayne’s luxury Miami Beach home for sale was placed on the market for a whopping $18 million… after a decade of ownership. The rapper bought it in 2006 for only $11.6 million which according to Miami-­Dade property records, was purchased through an LLC.

It turns out the home hasn’t been as hot on the market as anticipated by the Miami-­based broker of South Beach International Realty. Lil Wayne had no luck selling the home by the end of the year and dropped its list price by $2 million towards the end of December bringing its new listing price to $16 million.

Getting antsy about selling the 15,000 Sq. Ft. South Beach mansion, Miami­based rapper dropped yet another $2 million off the luxury home just yesterday. Bringing the current price to $14 million, Lil Wayne will only be profiting $2.4 million from his $11.6 million investment. Still beneficial for the rapper and even more beneficial for potential investors who have an opportunity to purchase the one­-of-­a-­kind property while saving over 20% of its original asking price.

3 Breathtaking Fisher Island Homes Fit for Royalty

In 2010, Fisher Island had the highest per capita income of any place in the United States. This beautiful island is incorporated as part of the city of Miami Beach.

Over a hundered years ago it was named after automotive parts pioneer and beach real estate developer Carl G. Fisher, who once owned it. Fisher Island is three miles off shore, of mainland South Florida. No road or causeway connects to the island. The only way on and off the island is by private boat or ferry. Once a one-family island home of the Vanderbilts, and later several other millionaires, it was sold for development in the 1960s. The property sat vacant for well over 15 years before development was begun for very limited and restrictive multi-family use. Nowadays the island is one of the most sought-after pieces of real estate in the world. From celebrities to sports figures, from musicians to world renowned businessmen; these Fisher Island homes are on everyone and anyone’s dream list.
