Want to buy the condo Lil Wayne's renting? Want a snack first?

Wayne2 Lil Wayne, Lil Wayne, Lil Wayne -- the Ministry thinks this story is just flat-out giggle-inducing.

Seems the rapper and new father (aka Dwayne Carter) is renting a condo in Miami's South Beach. The people who own the place have it on the market for $520,000, but -- according to the New York Post's Page Six -- the agent is wrangling a few unique challenges in showing the property for sale. 

No, it's nothing so pedestrian as the economy. Rather, it's the alleged "smell of marijuana," the inability to show the place early in the day and the "hot, rap-video-looking girls" who might be wandering around the place wearing nothing but bras and panties.

"These are not morning people," a New York Post source quotes the listing broker as saying.

At least this makes it easy for prospective buyers to imagine how entertaining might go down.

Lil Wayne, who owns a $3.1-million place nearby, is reportedly a lil' bit tidy as a tenant, with a perfectly organized closet and neat stacks of the hip-hop magazine XXL around the place.

So, maybe our giggling is just from reading about the condo? We would've gotten around to writing up this post sooner, but -- you know.

Mm hmm.
