50 Cent previewing mansion for sale on MTV
50 Cent is selling his enormous Connecticut mansion, and a special episode of 'MTV Cribs' will showcase the property.

50, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, bought the pile in 2004 and has renovated extensively since.

The rapper hosted a massive party at the house for around 600 guests in February 2005 to celebrate the release of his second album 'The Massacre', and NME.COM was there along with Common, Busta Rhymes and much of G Unit.

50 bought the house from boxer Mike Tyson, and immediately went about changing the 'Miami Vice'-style décor which included a room in which the walls were lined entirely in Gucci leather.

The house reportedly has 39 bathrooms, 19 bedrooms and its own nightclub. His 2005 party featured several games rooms with poker, and roulette tables as well as a pool room with several pool tables.

Having bought the mansion for $4, the asking price is currently $18.5 million.

The star is reportedly looking for a four or five-bedroom house closer to New York City.
