Rapper Drake Selling Miami Digs
Buy this newly-listed apartment, and it may just be the best you ever had.
Drake, the rapper and Grammy-nominated recording artist who currently holds the spot for #1 rap album in America, has just put not one, but two, of his Miami apartments on the market. The side-by-side units, 4906 (above) and 4905 in the Marquis Residences, both boast 20-foot-high ceilings with waterfront views, glass walls and marble staircases, and can be combined as a single apartment to create 5,475 square feet of living space. The total asking price? $2.5 million (the larger 4906 is selling for $1.9 million, while 4905 is priced at $599,000).
“Both units are just stunning,” says listing agent Jill Hertzberg. “Everything is state-of-the-art, from the kitchen with oversized Viking appliances, to the two-story, soaring living rooms — mesmerizing views.”
Plus, according to Coldwell Banker, the apartments are located in one of Miami’s most “elegant” buildings on Biscayne Boulevard, featuring A-list amenities such as a spa and fitness center, an open-air sky pool deck, state of the art meeting room facilities and private elevators.
Not that any of this is shocking, coming from a man who waxes lyrical (literally) about his wealth in songs like “Successful” (“They be starin’ at the money / I get it, I live it, to me there’s nothing realer”) and who ranked 11th in Forbes’ 2011 “Hip Hop Cash Kings” list, with $11 million to his name from record sales, tours and endorsement deals with Sprite and Kodak. Oh, and did we mention he’s only 25 years old?
Not bad, coming from a B-grade teen acting career in which he starred as Jimmy in “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” a character who was shot and consequently paralyzed for the rest of the series.
