    50 Cent's lowered the asking price for his Farmington mansion to $14.5 million. At least it's affordable now.

    Even hip-hop stars are feeling the pinch of the economy. 

    Rapper and music mogul 50 cent is having trouble selling his mega-mansion in Farmington.  50, also known as Curtis Jackson III, first put the Poplar Hill Rd. home on the market in April of 2007.  It's asking price then was $18.5 Million.  But it still hasn't sold, and 50 cent has been forced to drop the price to a "more reasonable" $14.5 Million.

    In case you're interested, here's a rundown of what you'll get for that $14.5 Million.  The house is 50,000 square feet on 17.6 acres.  It has 21 bedrooms, 25 bathrooms, 14 half-baths, four whirlpools, a sauna, a hot tub, a movie theater, and a guesthouse.  It's been featured on MTV's "Cribs." and was once owned by boxer Mike Tyson.

    One last thing, be prepared to pay about $100,000 in property taxes a year if you buy it.
