One of the most influential hip-hop artists of his generation and often regarded as one of the greatest rappers of all time, Lil Wayne started writing songs when he was 8 years old. He got his big break at just 12 years old when he was signed by Cash Money Records. He has won five Grammy Awards, 11 BET Awards, four Billboard Music Awards, two MTV Video Music Awards and eight NAACP Image Awards. With 120 million record sales worldwide, he is one of America’s most commercially successful artists.
Almost as unique as the superstar rapper, Lil Wayne’s Miami Beach home was recently listed for $29 million. The 10,632-square-foot home on Allison Island features 110 feet of water frontage and stellar views of the palm-lined Miami shore. Sleek and modern, the house has mahogany paneling, tons of glass and 22-foot ceilings.
The residence’s seven bedrooms are topped by the spacious primary suite that offers dual baths, a walk-in closet, a sitting area and a private terrace. A second junior suite also has its own terrace. The main kitchen is enhanced by custom Italian cabinetry and Subzero & Wolf appliances, while an additional chef ’s kitchen has separate staff quarters. The living room boasts sliding glass doors that open onto an expansive deck, while the great room sports floor-to-ceiling windows and opens onto the luxurious backyard.
The 23,760-square-foot lot includes a grand pool, multiple outdoor dining spaces and a cabana with direct access to the pristine white sands of the island’s private beach. Additional amenities include a movie theater, a wine room, an elevator, a private dock and a three-car garage.
A gated community with 24-hour guard service and the additional security of being surrounded on all sides by water, Allison Island is northwest of Miami Beach, close to La Gorce Country Club and the Normandy Shores Golf Club, both on neighboring islands. The area is home to numerous A-list celebrities including Pitbull, Sylvester Stallone, Madonna and Shakira.
The listing is held by Cyril Matz of Douglas Elliman. ¦
