The Power and BMF producer explained that he needed to list expenses in order to prevent the IRS from taxing him heavily.

Following his successful tour with Jay-Z, 50 Cent came home to nearly $40 million to his name had nothing but a two-bedroom apartment that cost less than $1,000 per month to stay in.

"My first run -- the Rock The Mic tour -- I came back, I had $38 million in my account," 50 said. "And all I had was a two-bedroom apartment that was $800 a month. So if you don't spend it, you know the IRS is gonna take it. So I needed the expenses. So I ended up buying Mike Tyson's home in Farmington."

50 Cent bought Mike Tyson's mansion for $4.5 million. The 50,000-square-foot home boasted 21 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, an indoor pool and hot tub, a green-screen room, an indoor court, multiple game rooms, and a recording studio.

While the rapper tried selling the home for almost $20 million, he eventually sold it for about $3 million as the mansion remained on the market for over a decade.
