Lil Wayne‘s real estate agent probably got the standard 3% commission when Weezy sold his Miami mansion recently, but another party in the deal made a whopping 40% of the sale — Uncle Sam.
The former Cash Money rapper recently sold his South Florida crib for $10 million. It sat on the market for a year with an asking price of $18 million.
Wayne originally bought the 9-bedroom, 9-bathroom ocean front villa for $11.6 million in 2006. He famously installed a rooftop halfpipe and shark lagoon.
According to court documents, the IRS collected $4,321,561.31 from the sale of the property to help pay back the $12.1 million in unpaid taxes Wayne owes.
The bad news for Weezy is that he is still $7.6 million in the hole.
Hopefully he gets the money to pay it off whenever Birdman decides to release “Tha Carter V.”
