The pedigree shows

FARMINGTON, Conn. - The 52-room mansion that rapper 50 Cent has called home for more than three years, an estate once owned by boxer Mike Tyson, is up for sale...

"I was surprised it hadn't come on the market because we were expecting it," [real estate agent Curt] Clemens said. "He's put a lot into it, and it's all very tasteful, except the stripper poles."

Didn't home stripper poles become pretty fashionable even among the non-gangsta set after the recent surge in stripper-themed exercise classes (e.g., Carmen Electra's 'strippercize' movement)? I'm sure it's a worthy addition to any home - right next to the fireplace, say.
