Less than a month after police descended on Lil Wayne’s Miami Beach mansion because of a prank call claiming four people had been shot there, the rapper is putting his home on the market — for $18 million.

The 15,101 square-foot house on private La Gorce Island has nine bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and 120 feet of waterfront.

It’s also known for a skateboarding ramp that Wayne — whose legal name is Dwayne Michael Carter — had installed on the roof.

“It’s an amazing contemporary home,” said Ty Forkner of South Beach International Realty, who is handling the sale. “And if you pay full price, I can probably convince Wayne to leave his skate park on the roof.”

The property, which has an address at 94 La Gorce Circle, also includes a saltwater lagoon.

A corporation associated with the New Orleans-born Grammy winner bought the three-story house for $11.6 million in 2011, county property records show.
