Meek Mill looks to sell Atlanta-area mansion
Rapper claims he’s never moved into the luxe Sandy Springs home
Meek Mill’s Atlanta-area mansion seems to be more nightmare than dream for the 35-year-old rapper.
Mill is looking to sell his eight-bedroom, nine-and-a-half-bathroom mansion in Sandy Springs, even though he says he never lived in it despite having owned it for a couple of years, WSB-TV reported.
Mill posted on Instagram that his realtor, whom he did not name, isn’t selling the property fast enough, so he took to social media to expedite the matter.
He didn’t list a price for the mansion, but he did identify in broad terms who might be interested in purchasing it.
“When somebody get traded to the hawks or falcons come grab this Jawn!” Mill wrote to his 23.3 million followers on Instagram. He also included a video tour of the property, which includes a swimming pool and a combination tennis/basketball court. The luxe home features a home theater, sauna and other modern amenities.
Sandy Springs currently has 44 homes listed for sale, according to Realtor.com, with a median listing price of $1.5 million.
Mill isn’t the first rapper to suffer from buyer’s remorse after purchasing a massive property. Most notably, 50 Cent in 2019 offloaded his enormous estate in Farmington, Connecticut, for $2.9 million. The rapper, whose birth name is Curtis James Jackson, bought the compound at 50 Poplar Hill Drive from Mike Tyson for $4.1 million in 2003. The price Jackson fetched for selling the property was significantly less than the $18.5 million he sought when he first listed it in 2007.
Not all real estate transactions involving rappers end poorly, however.
Lil Wayne in February sold his Allison Island home for a reported $22.6 million, well above the $17 million he paid for the estate in 2018. Still, the award-winning rapper, whose legal name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., fetched less than the $28 million for which he listed.
