If you’re familiar with the career and eccentricities of Brian Williams (rap name: Birdman), then you know the flightless mammal isn’t guided by strict austerity. The first tip off could have been his proclamation in 2002, when he was part of the duo Big Tymers, that he was “hood rich,” or, more specifically, that he “Ain't got no job, but I stay suave / Can't pay my rent, cause all my money's spent.”
In the interim, Birdman, who has moved onto more prosperous endeavors, including co-founding the omnipotent Cash Money Records, has proved he’s a little more than hood rich these days. He’s a whole lotta real rich—to the tune of $125 million, according to Forbes.
What does a formerly hood rich man do with all that money? Well, if you’re Birdman, you buy a $14.5 million, nine-bedroom home in Miami. At 19,000-square-feet, the massive abode is the same size as the Four Seasons Hotel, according to the Daily Mail.
What else does $14.5 million buy you? How does 17 bathrooms, a spa with an in-house massage room, a gym, a theater, and a private dock sound?
Bad omens do, however, dwell in Birdman’s new digs. The home was formerly owned by star hip hop producer Scott Storch, who fell on hard times with money and drugs and had the estate repossessed. For now, Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Drake will be calling it the new Cash Money HQ.
