FARMINGTON, Conn. (AP) — Rapper 50 Cent has lowered the asking price for his Connecticut mansion again after filing for bankruptcy in the state this past summer.

The Hartford Courantreported that the new listing for 50 Cent’s 21-bedroom, 25-bathroom home in Farmington is $8.5 million.

The rapper bought the 50,000-square-foot mansion for $4.1 million in 2003, but reports say he invested between $6 million to $10 million on renovations.

50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson III, first asked for $18.5 million for the home in 2007 and has been periodically reducing its price ever since.

High-end residential real estate expert Rob Giuffria says “50 would have a better chance being a country music singer” than finding a buyer at $8.5 million.

The listing broker couldn’t be reached for comment.
