What kind of housewarming gift should you buy for a rapper who is supposedly bankrupt? a ceramic piggy bank might be nice.

Rapper 50 Cent took to Instagram recently to announce, "My crib is almost finished in Africa. I'm gonna have the craziest housewarming party ever."

Africa? that seems a little "out there," especially since Curtis Jackson, known as 50 Cent, filed for bankruptcy in the United States back in July. He filed about three days after a judge ordered him to pay five million dollars to a woman who sued him over a sex tape.

Making a sex taps is never a good idea. But filing for Chapter 11 was interesting timing, right?

We have no idea how much he paid for the new house, but the video he posted to Instagram shows a pretty expensive mansion, which means he may not be all that cash poor after all. His posting on Instagram makes you wonder if filing for bankruptcy was simply an Insta-sham. In other words, was it a protective financial move?

By the way, we don't know the exact location of Fiddy's African crib. But you'll probably get directions when you receive your party e-vite!
