Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., otherwise known as Lil Wayne, just sold his Miami Beach mansion for $10 million, taking a loss on the property that he paid $11.6 million for in 2011.

The rapper first put the water-front home on the market for $18 million in 2015, according to the Wall Street Journal, and the house faced several price cuts since.

Carter reportedly listed the property following an incident that saw someone falsely report that four people had been shot at the home, and as a result police were sent. “He didn’t enjoy having prank calls and things like that happening,” said listing agent Ty Forkner of One Sotheby’s International Realty, to the WSJ.

The spread includes a six-bedroom main house, a three-bedroom guest house that serves as a recording studio, plus there’s a custom-built skate park on the roof and an inside shark pool.

No word on whether the sharks came with the house.
