Akon Hey Mom, Merry Early XMAS Take My Home, Please

Akon already feels the holiday spirit ... he just turned over the deed to his Atlanta home to his mom.

It's a 5 bedroom pad about an hour outside of the ATL. Akon bought the home a decade ago for $293k but his digs are now much grander ... a mansion in the Atlanta burbs.

The bond between Akon and his mom goes beyond blood. They both devote a lot of time to the Konfidence Foundation, which helps kids in West Africa. She's the president/CEO. 

There might be another reason for the transfer ... Akon's got a bunch of outstanding tax liens ... so it'll be a lot harder for Uncle Sam to go after the crib.
