Lil Wayne Can’t Sell Miami Pad Due to ‘Overwhelming Smell of Marijuana’
The NY Post reports that multi-platinum rapper Lil Wayne is having difficulty selling his swanky Miami apartment due to his marijuana habit.
The popular Louisiana rapper has been shopping his three bedroom, two bathroom apartment, which is listed at $520,000, but has allegedly run into trouble finding a buyer.
"My fiancée and I called to make an appointment to see it, and the broker, deadpan, goes, 'I have two questions: Are you offended by the smell of marijuana?" a prospective buyer told The Post. "And do you mind coming late in the afternoon? It's currently rented by Lil Wayne and these are not morning people."
Unperturbed, the couple attempted to view the property and were greeted by scantily clad women and an apartment full of weed smoke.
"Once we got there, a member of Wayne's posse opened the door to the overwhelming smell of marijuana. Two hot, rap-video-looking girls were walking around in nothing but a bra and underwear, blasting hip-hop. We just went in and looked around and tried not to stare," the buyer explained. "He had a perfectly organized closet of crisp T-shirts on hangers, neatly stacked piles of XXL magazine, and a fully stocked bar featuring multiple bottles of Hennessy Black."
Wayne notoriously described his marijuana usage to Katie Couric earlier this year, saying "I will stand up for marijuana any day. I'm a rapper. That's who I am, Miss Katie, and I am a gangster and I do what I want. And I love to smoke. And I smoke."
Wayne's 'Rebirth' album is scheduled to be released in February of 2010.
We're going to go out on a limb and suggest maybe next time they show the apartment, they do it while Wayne's out of town. Just a thought.
