Lil Wayne's Miami apartment scares off potential buyers because of marijuana smell

    Lil Wayne is one of the biggest names in hip-hop right now. Actually, he's one of the biggest names in music right now (he had the biggest-selling album of 2008).

    He's also geared to genre-jump by releasing a rock album in February. Besides that, we also know that the pint-size rapper has been unapologetically open about his drugs of choice which are of syrup and marijuana, but now marijuana is preventing the Louisiana native's Miami apartment from being sold for the listing price of $520,000. Potential buyers are turned off simply because it smells like marijuana.

    He currently rents the three bedroom, two bathroom apartment that is being sold and a couple recently visited the property. The couple that remained anonymous told The NY Post about their experience visiting when they considered buying the South Beach property. The first oddity they claim is that broker asked them two direct questions when they expressed interest: "Are you offended by the smell of marijuana? And do you mind coming late in the afternoon? It's currently rented by Lil Wayne, and these are not morning people."

    The couple went to the rental property anyway despite those upfront questions, but found it to be immersed inside in a cloud of marijuana smoke. The potential buyer said that, "Once we got there, a member of Wayne's posse opened the door to the overwhelming smell of marijuana. Two hot, rap-video-looking girls were walking around in nothing but a bra and underwear, blasting hip-hop. We just went in and looked around and tried not to stare,” they revealed. "He had a perfectly organized closet of crisp T-shirts on hangers, neatly stacked piles of XXL magazine, and a fully stocked bar featuring multiple bottles of Hennessy Black."

    It's not uncommon for marijuana to be the recreational drug of choice for many celebrities, but when you can't put away the drugs for a showing of your apartment, there's a problem. Although there is much buzz around the nation lately about the legalization of marijuana, it's still not legal and surely most people don't want the smell of marijuana permeating through the air while they visit a potential home.

    Unfortunately for the broker, Lil Wayne is still occupying the apartment until someone makes an offer, so only time will tell how long it takes to sell. Lil Wayne, however, does not have that much time left. The top-selling artist is expected to be sentenced soon for gun charges that stem from an October 22 plea and serve a year in prison.

    Would someone care to enlighten Swim on what syrup actually is? At first glance swim thought the article said syrup of marijuana? Swim was like Woah! I've gotta know more about that... Perhaps said apartment could be featured as a tourist destination like Graceland?

    I thought it was a mix of Codeine with Promethazine and combined with jolly rangers and mixed with Sprite or something similar? Lil Wayne is always talking about sipping on the syrup

    syrup is usually cough syrup with codeine, or just codeine syrup for a cough.

    And what a dumbass... having your house blazed out, and with a party atmosphere is such a great way to sell a house to normal people....

    its cough syrup with codeine. he claims thats why his voice sounds like it does. i personally hate lil wayne. hes so narcissistic. this is just another example of his failure as a human. he cant even manage to make a house presentable? when a house is shown generally you're supposed to be out of it completely. not have strippers walking around and fresh weed smoke in the air. what a jackass.

    im just gonna come out and say this. i hope he gets raped in prison. if you disagree with me then so be it, but he needs a reality check.

    It doesn't sound like he wants the place to be presentable. I doubt he cares at all.

    Maybe he should get some of that flavoured rolling paper.

    why would he care about what his apartment smells or looks like to a 'normal' person? thats his lifestyle. im sure the place will sell and no matter what the price what would he care? im sure hes got plenty of money to buy a new place. thats why hes moving out right?

    hence the issue here. money is no excuse for being a dick. the world needs to learn that. just because you're rich or famous that should not be a reason for society to give you a break. in fact if it was up to me, when a celebrity acted in such a fashion they would have an asshole tax invoked and would have to give up all their money to charity after makinga formal apology to the world as a whole.

    Re: Lil Wayne's Miami apartment scares off potential buyers because of marijuana smel

    if only the world worked like that. im not saying hes trying to be an asshole, thats just how he lives his life. i prolly wouldnt buy a place that stank of weed, id ask the guy where he got his stuff and maybe try to cheif with him haha. just air it out for a week or two. the smell will go away

    He's so rich and successful, i doubt he even really cares about selling his place... I bet when he gets out of jail, he'll buy a million dollar mansion and do the same whole jig again.

    P.s. his mixtape was great.

    Syrup = sizzurp = codeine + promethazine cough syrup, not alc or dxm.

    Haha....lol'ed a bit there. I have my own house-hunting memories (nightmares) that center on walking into a house that REEKS of curry and Indian spices. Not that I don't like Indian food, much less Indian people....it's just SOOOO strong.

    Instant DQ in my book.

    Haha, just before the summer, I moved out of my apartment. Upon showing it to an elderly gentlemen, I realized my bong was sitting out on my computer desk. At that point, there was nothing I could do. The man glanced at it, said, "Oh my!" and turned away quickly. I said sorry, and he moved on with his questions.

    Swim knows about syrup...

    To the above swims who said cough syrup containing promethazine and codeine, they are absolutely correct. Apparently syrup (also known as sizzurp, drink, drank, purple drank, and more names) is popular amongst the hip-hop community as a drug of abuse... It is often just prometh-codeine cough syrup mixed in with sprite, 7-up, or other popular soft drinks of the like, a little bit of ice (as in frozen water), and also includes a jolly rancher candy piece as flavoring...

    Swim has once had a prescription to promethazine-codeine cough syrup (which doesn't contain all that much codeine), and finds it to have a relatively low (if any) recreational value. Swim took it properly, of course, and found it made him drowsy and dizzy, so swim cannot imagine higher doses being too much different. Swim also notes that promethazine is not only used as an antihistamine in the cough syrup, but also as a potentiator for the small dose of codeine contained, plus the prometh content is significantly higher than that of codeine... Too much causes quite severe respiratory side effects, the worst being respiratory depression and respiratory arrest. A certain rapper, known as DJ Screw, overdosed and died on 'purple drank' the cause of course, respiratory depression, leading to respiratory arrest.

    Quite a dangerous and bad idea swim thinks.
