From Dream to Nightmare: The Unbelievable Revelations About 50 Cent’s Costly Mistake in Acquiring Mike Tyson’s $4.1 Million Estate


In 2007, Grammy-winning rapper 50 Cent made a choice that has been branded as “ridiculous” by his long-time friend. Shelling out $4.1 million, he purchased the sprawling 21-bedroom mansion previously owned by boxing titan Mike Tyson, embarking on a luxury lifestyle filled with grandeur and extravagance.

However, beneath the glitz and glamour lay a startling reality that would make even the most hardened mogul’s jaw drop.


Tony Yayo’s unforgettable experience at 50 Cent’s mansion

In a recent interview with DJ Vlad, Tony Yayo, 50 Cent’s long-time friend and collaborator, shared some fascinating details about his experiences in the colossal mansion. Yayo confessed, “It was just a house that [50] was never there anyway,” hinting at the sheer size and scale of the property.

DJ Vlad noted the property’s geographical isolation, pointing out that “it’s far.” Yayo agreed, “It was in Connecticut… it was so big that you know we’d bring the party to us.” The mansion wasn’t just a home; it was an entertainment hub. It had a firing range, motorbikes, and even a club. “We had one of the biggest pools in the world in there. And we had indoor pools, outdoor pools… everything sauna, full gym,” Yayo added, painting a vivid picture of the grandeur.

The rapper reminisced about the times when parties would be thrown in the mansion while 50 Cent was away. “50 was never there, so it would just be a lot of parties in there,” Yayo admitted.


Discussing the mansion’s features, DJVlad mentioned, “50,000 square foot house with 21 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, indoor pool, hot tub, green screen room, indoor court, multiple game rooms, recording studio, and even a nightclub.” Yayo added to the list, revealing another rather unconventional feature, “Strip club, firing range was the craziest, the firing range was ridiculous.”

50 Cent’s Regret Over Buying Mike Tyson’s Mansion

Owning the mansion of Mike Tyson was initially an exciting venture for 50 Cent. However, the allure faded as he confronted the financial implications. During an episode of ‘Big Boy’s Neighbourhood’ podcast, 50 Cent admitted, “The Tyson crib was like that, that was definitely it.” He bought the property for $4.1 million but sold it for only $3.1 million after an annual upkeep of $700,000 for 14 years.

Speaking on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, 50 Cent asserted, “I don’t want a big house anymore.” The mansion’s size was a discomfort. In his words, “Whenever you look down the hallway of the house, you don’t want to go down there.” His experience underscores the hidden burdens of extravagant luxury.

The story of 50 Cent’s regretful purchase of Mike Tyson’s mansion serves as a cautionary tale about the hidden costs and responsibilities that come with extravagant luxuries. It demonstrates that even for the wealthy, maintaining such a large estate can be more of a burden than a symbol of success.
