These two have battled in out on the charts and Kayne West was the clear winner selling 957,000 CDs to 50 Cent's 691,000. But now that the dust has settled around the music sales feud, let's take it to the streets and find out who is winning the turf war.
First up, Kanye West's 6 bedroom, 4 bath, 3,299 square foot home in the flats of Beverly Hills, CA. The top selling rapper reportedly paid $7,150,000 for the home which had not been on the market for almost 45 years! Good thing the seller used a listing Agent to price the home and didn't go straight off the Zestimate because since there hasn't been any sales activity on the home for so long, we were pretty far off. However, Kanye was well represented on the buy side of his deal as well with the home originally coming on the market at $8,499,000, then reduced to $7,499,000 with Kanye ultimately getting another $349,000 off to arrive at his sales price.
Then over to the other coast where 50 hangs his second place ribbons, in Farmington, NJ. 50 bought the home in September 2003 for $4,100,000 from Monica Turner Tyson (she acquire the home as part of the divorce proceedings from Mike Tyson). The home has 52 rooms making up 51,657 square feet of living space. So if we are looking at square footage alone, 50 definitely comes out on top of this turf war. Unfortunately, this home isn't on Zillow, but I am not sure we could accurately value it because we haven't yet added stripper poles yet into our valuation algorithm that 50 had installed throughout the home.
50 had said that if Kanye beat him in record sales, he would retire from the rap scene. Oh no, how will he ever pay his bills you might be asking!?! Well, apparently he hopes to supplement his retirement income through the sale of his home which is currently listed for $18,500,000! Either the real estate slowdown isn't affecting
Farmington, NJ or those were some expensive stripper poles he had installed!
