For those who can afford more than just a single “milli”, a residence owned by rap superstar Lil Wayne is now for sale at a $29.5 million list price. The home is located on one of the hottest blocks to exist: Allison Island, the high-priced neighborhood that’s a part of Miami, Florida.
More about Lil Wayne’s Beach Home
The massive asking price for the property stems from the location and the quality of the home. Another home on the island was sold to the artist Future for over $16 million in late 2022, but Wayne paid the same amount for his freshly built unit back in 2018.
The new owner of Lil Wayne’s beach home won’t have a true sandy beach, but that also means fewer worries about sand making its way inside.
An Allison Island address puts the home in the middle of Biscayne Bay, surrounded on every side by the city and the water. Bridge access to the island means the owner won’t need their own yacht just to make it home, but the dock at the end of the half-acre lot will let them hitch one nearby for a quick getaway to check out the reefs in Biscayne National Park or venture out to the Atlantic Ocean. The community is also gated and protected by security around the clock to give residents more peace of mind at home.
Despite being in a fairly small lot on an equally small island, the interior of the building has a sprawling 11,470 square feet of space with seven bedrooms, and a wall of greenery keeps the backyard relatively private for the location. Comfortable balconies overlook a yard that’s big enough for a barbecue with the family despite having a pool and covered cabana.
Windows spanning from floor to ceiling make up the majority of the home’s back wall on both floors, offering a soothing view of the bay’s waters and the Miami area’s blend of palm and mangrove trees. The open living room and dining area have towering ceilings, and even the office space is left open and free to help spread the wings of creativity.
For cozier spaces, the home movie theater brings the walls closer and focuses the viewers toward the screen. While Lil Wayne’s choice of a single comfy chair has merit, the room could easily fit several family and friends for private shows. Anyone buying this home won’t care about the price of movie tickets or concessions, but the convenience and comfort are worth much more than the savings on popcorn.
Who is Lil Wayne?
Given the name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. when born in 1982, Lil Wayne has been better known by his stage name since he signed onto Cash Money Records in 1994 at the age of 12. He first made it to the top of the charts when featured on a song by Juvenile in the twilight of the 20th century. In 2005, he founded his own record label, Young Money Entertainment, whose most prominent stars are himself and Nicki Minaj. His artistry continues to this day, with several more albums listed as upcoming releases.
