Marijuana Smell Makes Lil Wayne's Miami Apartment a Hard Sell

This seems almost as ridiculous as that Onion piece claiming Lil Wayne was recruited by the DEA to get rid of all the drugs in Mexico, but this one actually isn't an attempt at satire.

It's no secret Weezy calls South Beach his part-time home and has his primary residence in the Murano Grande in SoFi, but like any true baller, he rents a side pad. The $520,000 condo he's staying in is reportedly up for sale.

Page Six reports the broker trying to sell the place is having some problems, and for once, it has nothing to do with the real estate bust.

"My fiancé and I called to make an appointment to see it, and the broker, deadpan, goes, 'I have two questions: 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," says Page Six's snitch.

"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."

Besides the overwhelming stench of pot, though, the tipsters said Wayne was a surprisingly neat tenant.

Of course, this illustrates why South Beach became such a cocaine hot spot in the first place. Coke doesn't leave stains on the wall, burn holes in the carpet, or leave a stench, so it's much better for resale value. Any landlord on the island will tell you they'd much rather have someone with deep pockets and deep nostrils than a pothead any day.
