    Rapper Lil Wayne wants to, or maybe just needs to, unload his Miami mansion on La Gorce Island, Fla., that he purchased early last year for $14 million. He is asking $12.9 million for a possible quick sale given he has an Internal Revenue Service tax lien hanging over his head.

    The IRS says the rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., owes the government a total of $5.6 million, which breaks down to $3,351,078 owed for 2008 and $2,258,956 for 2009. Last year, he had liens against him for more than $1 million for the tax years 2004, 2005 and 2007.

    Before purchasing his 15,101-square-foot home he had rented it for several months from a real estate developer, area real estate agent Andre Shambley of the ERA Herman Group told this AOL Real Estate contributor. While renting, Lil Wayne's four-bedroom South Beach condo at the
    Murano Grande was on the market for $2.8 million to help pay off last year's lien. The 9-bedroom, 9 full-bath, glass, steel and marble modern residence has a two-story master suite accessible by a glass elevator and two half baths. The living room truly has a floor-to-ceiling wall of glass, which stretches the full length and height of the open space. READ MORE

    antoine walkerFormer Boston Celtics star Antoine Walker, who used to play $15,000 poker hands with Michael Jordan, is gambling again. This time he is betting that the drastic price drop on his 7,111-square-foot Coconut Grove, Fla., home will do the trick.

    On Friday Walker chopped the price of the 5-bedroom, 5½-bath home 34 percent from $3 million to $1.995 million, making it "the biggest price cut of the day," reported The Real Deal. The 2004-built home, which he purchased in 2005 for $3.1 million, had already seen one price cut from $3.4 million.

    "The drastic price decrease is part of my strategy to get more buyers interested," listing agent Andre Shambley of the ERA Herman Group told AOL Real Estate. " As a result I'm now getting four to five calls a day on this property."
