Rapper Birdman buys the kind of house that Scott Storch threw away from drug use, over-spending
Rapper Birdman is the 7th richest rapper, according to celebrity pundits, and is currently worth $115 million. Birdman, whose real name is Bryan Williams, co-founded Cash Money Records with this brother Ronald “Slim” Williams and it has been rolling in some serious money for them ever since 1998, when they signed their first distribution deal with Universal Records.
It, therefore, didn’t come as a surprise when it was announced that Birdman had purchased a breathtaking mansion on Palm Island that was previously owned by Rockstar energy drink founder Russell Weiner. The price: $14.5 million.
There are some that are saying Birdman might have started looking into investing in property after it was reported that his brother Slim paid $17.5 million for the largest house in South Florida last month.
Birdman’s house stands on 30,000 square feet, of which 19,000 square feet is living space, and is on the waterfront. The house has nine bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
Other features include an underground indoor pool, a spa, a wine cellar, a movie theater, a fitness center and a game room. Outside, there is an external pool, an entertaining area with bungalows and even a dock that could cater to a very large yacht.
The view of the waterfront is a hundred feet wide.
The previous history of the house itself makes for an interesting read. Weiner, the previous owner, had bought the house for $6.75 million in 2010 and has managed to more than double his money within that short time.
He had bought the house after it had been repossessed from bankrupt hip hop producer Scott Storch, who had bought the house in 2006 for $10.5 million.
Storch, who was once worth $70 million allegedly lost all his money after spending it all on cocaine, cars, jewelry, private jets, a yacht worth $20 million and expensive girlfriends like Paris Hilton.
