After 12 years on the market, 43-year-old rapper 50-Cent has managed to sell his 21-bedroom mansion in Farmington, Connecticut, to an undisclosed buyer for $US2.9 million (NZD $4.1m), which is an 84 per cent drop from his original asking price.
Now, the In Da Club rapper has finally sold his home, he plans to donate his money to the G-Unity Foundation – the charity he founded in 2003 that provides grants to nonprofit organisations that focus on improving the quality of life for low-income and underserved communities across the United States.
Last year, the musician – whose real name is Curtis James Jackson – decided to pull his house off the market during an episode of ‘Million Dollar Listing New York’ and suggested the idea of donating the mansion itself to his foundation – however Jackson since changed his mind and decided to donate the $2.9 million to the charity instead.
Speaking on the show, he said: “It feels like it’s better if I actually give it away.
