Bryan “Birdman” Williams, the co-founder and public face of Cash Money Records, is attempting to fly the coop—and put some respect on his name, because he’s not leaving without compensation.
It’ll take $20 million to open the door and let the Birdman soar. That’s the price he hopes to pull down for his mansion on the water in Miami Beach, FL.
Williams bought the mansion—which was built in 2004—from Rockstar Energy Drink founder Russell Weiner for $14.25 million in 2011. Birdman then dropped a few million renovating the place into a baller’s paradise, with acres of marble, chrome, custom lighting, and textured, animal-print wallpaper.
“This is a home fit for kings: 20,000 square feet under AC with every amenity possible,” says co-listing agent Brett Harris of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. “Two wine cellars, movie theater that seats 13, six-car climate-controlled garage, 40-foot-tall entry foyer, entertainer’s bar, a double staircase with custom iron railings … and a 2,000-square-foot master bedroom with two private balconies make this home one of the grandest estates on Palm Island.”
The mansion is located in the Estates section of Palm Island and features 100 feet of canal frontage, plus a dock that can accommodate a 100-foot yacht. It has seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. It previously had nine bedrooms, but the 48-year-old music mogul combined three bedrooms on the top floor to create a grand master suite with dual bathrooms with walk-in closets, as well as a plush sitting area with a fireplace.
There’s also a chef’s kitchen with a custom lit island, two wine cellars, and two garages, one for four cars and another for two.
The grounds include a pool, sand volleyball court, and summer kitchen with a pizza oven. Palm trees adorn the half-acre property.
Harris told TheRealDeal.com the rapper has decided that “it’s too much home for him,” and he’s hoping to downsize. Alex Daguer of Fortune International Realty is co-listing the property with Harris.
Harris says Williams is looking at other South Florida properties to invest in once his current mansion sells. Williams’ Cash Money Records label, which he co-founded with his brother, Ronald “Slim” Williams, has been responsible for hits from artists including Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Drake. The Birdman himself is estimated to be worth about $180 million.
