Young Weezy’s got money, and he just spent nearly $17 million of it on a waterfront mansion in Miami Beach.

Property records show Lil Wayne is behind the buying entity, 6480 Allison Road Ventures LLC, using his real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. Spec home developer Laurent Harrari sold the 10,6320-square-foot, seven-bedroom home at 6480 Allison Road.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the purchase.

Harrari’s company paid $4.4 million for the 23,760-square-foot lot in 2013. The mansion was built in 2017. The property features a great room with 22-foot ceilings, a movie theater with suede wall coverings and two “living” walls of plants.

The property first hit the market in 2015 for $24 million, according to Realtor.com

Lil Wayne sold his house at 94 La Gorce Circle on La Gorce Island for $10 million in June 2017, at a loss, after listing it in 2015 for $18 million. That property, which featured a skate park on the roof and a shark lagoon, was the subject of a swatting incident, where police were falsely sent to the home.
