Rapper 50 Cent has put his palatial Connecticut mansion on the market for a massive $18.5m (€12.5m).

The 'In Da Club' hitmaker bought the extensive Farmington estate, which was once owned by boxer Mike Tyson, in 2004 and has turned part of the 19-bedroom property into his own private nightclub, where the rapper hosts celebrity parties.

He has also installed his own state-of-the-art music studio, where he recorded his most recent hits.

Hoping it will help him make a quick sale, 50 has agreed to let MTV cameras into his home to record a special edition of MTV's Cribs, which will air in America on Thursday.
