After 12 years of being on the housing market, 50 Cent (born Curtis Jackson) has sold his 21-bedroom mansion to an undisclosed buyer.
The 50,000 square-foot, property located in Farmington, Conn., sold for US$2.9 million — 84 per cent less than the 43-year-old’s original asking price — according to The Wall Street Journal.
In 2007, the asking price was first listed at $18.5 million. Jackson struggled to sell the house since then.
During an appearance on an episode of Million Dollar Listing New York in mid-2018, Jackson initially decided to pull his house off the market and even suggested the idea of donating the mansion itself to his foundation.
“It feels like it’s better if I actually give it away,” he said.
The rapper seemingly changed his mind however, and decided to donate the $2.9 million to the charity instead.
The G-Unity Foundation was launched to focus on improving the lifestyles and opportunities for underserved and low-income communities across the U.S.

Jackson originally bought the 17-acre property in 2004 from former professional boxer, Mike Tyson, according to The Associated Press.
The Candy Shop rapper reportedly shelled out US$4.1 million before splurging on massive renovations.
As well as 25 individual bathrooms, the mansion now holds an indoor pool, gym, recording studio, a billiards room and a nightclub among many other things.
