Even though this is an atypical sh*t on rappers for being broke blog post, the main thing I’m getting out of this entry is that real estate is cheap as f*ck in Atlanta. You can get a perfectly legit house for like 200k? Good to know. If you will remember Diamond recently had a very public car repossesion. I guess it’s pretty cute that Diamond and her boo are becoming publicly broke at the same time. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Don’t get thing’s financed if you can’t actually finance them. According to The YBF:
- Lil Scrappy, government name Darryl Richardson, bought his 2,836 sq ft home in Conyers, GA back in 2004. He copped it for $182,800 back when he was still dropping singles on the radio, but not only has the home (pictured above) devalued to $123,000, but the bank foreclosed on it this past August.
- And if he thought he was going to just move in with his “My Chick Bad” rapper girlfriend Diamond, that’s a no-go. We’ve also got documents that show Diamond, government name Brittany Carpentero, got her home foreclosed on this past September by Suntrust Bank. Why? Because she couldn’t pay her mortgage on her Walden Park neighborhood Atlanta home (pictured above).
She copped her house for $219,000 back in ’07–during her Crime Mob stint–and it’s now only worth $202,000. The house is on the market for $124,000.
