Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is known for being friends with several rappers. He was closely connected with the legendary rapper late Tupac Shakur and used to party around with the star back in the late 90s. However, this extravagant lifestyle led him to bankruptcy in 2003, making him sell most of his valuable assets.

Among these assets was a 52-room mansion which was bought by rapper 50 Cent for a whooping  £3.3million. Tyson apparently loved the mansion and had no plans of selling it. However, after recording the final win of his career in 2003, ‘Iron’ Mike had to take the step.

Meanwhile, 50 Cent seemed to have bagged a proper deal as the mansion had every luxury available. According to the reports of The Daily Star, the mansion has 21 bedrooms, 25 washrooms, an indoor pool, a hot tub, and a private nightclub.
