Birdman

Y.U. Mad ...

'Cause I Bought a Palace

EXCLUSIVE

1013_cash_money_launch
Music Mogul Birdman spent $14.5 mil in cash money for a Miami mansion the size of a Four Seasons.

The rapper -- who co-founded Cash Money Records -- bought the 19,000-sqaure-foot pad last month -- which sits on the ultra exclusive Palm Island.

The 9-bedroom, 17-bath palace is amazing -- 25-foot-ceilings ... a below ground pool ... an outdoor pool with cabana ... a theater, gym, spa area ... in-house massage room ... 100 feet of waterfront AND a private dock.

Ya know, for your awesome boat.

FUN HOUSE HISTORY:
The mansion belonged to music producer Scott Storch until it was taken away from him in  foreclosure 2 years ago.  It was snatched up by the inventor of Rockstar energy drinks for $6.75 mil ... and then flipped to Birdman for a huge profit.

Oh the rich.  We hate them.

Got ripped off. Bou for $6.75m and he paid $14m. Nobody makes that much profit in 2 years, esp in this bad economy.

He'll lose it to foreclosure like the rest. Senseless waste.

Yup    

That place is idiotically huge; it's a warehouse for 1 person; it's cold, impersonal & not much of a cozy place you'd call home. I guarantee he'll spend very little time there (he probably bought it to feed into his HUGE ego), and he'll be selling it within 3 years...

He is a flippin' moron. Only a class A idiot would purchase a property that was previously foreclosed and purchased granting the flipper a $7.8 million profit. Then you get some museum like, gaudy piece of something he is calling a home. It doesn't look child friendly and, it certainly doesn't look like the kind of home where you want a bunch of neccas hanging out, drinking and spilling ish. What is the point? Baby is so flamboyant ... and most of all tacky. There is nothing to hate or be mad about though. It is good that he purchased a home for cash but, he was stupid for forfeiting that much money to profit someone else.

TMZ must love when rappers buy mansions. They get a story when they buy it and another one when it is foreclosed a few years later.

A fool and his $ will soon part....he'll be flat broke in no time. Nobody's "hating" a fool. Trust me, he has buyers remorse but we'll never hear about it.
