The home boasts 9 bedrooms and a whopping 17 bathrooms in its 19,000 square feet -the same size as a Four Seasons hotel - and the home cost Birdman a staggering $14.5 million.

In addition to its impressive size, the home offers a host of luxurious amenities, including 25-foot ceilings, a gym, a spa and two swimming pools, one inside and one outside that comes with an attached bungalow. The home also features a movie theatre and a private dock with 100 feet of waterfront property.
Birdman is only the most recent music mogul to own the property. The home is the former residence of Scott Storch, who skyrocketed to fame as a hip-hop producer after working on music with high-profile names like Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent and Ludacris. Storch raked in millions of dollars and lived a luxurious lifestyle, but he lost the Miami palace to foreclosure in 2010 after it became what Storch himself called a "drug den."
After Storch moved out, Russel Weiner, the inventor of RockStar energy drink, snatched up the home for $7 million.
Birdman certainly has the cash to afford a luxurious home like this Miami property. As the co-founder of Cash Money Records, he oversees the label that releases music by international rap superstars like Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj.
His work in hip-hop earned Birdman $20 million in 2012, sending him to the No. 7 spot on Forbes' ranking of the highest-earning rappers in the world.
