Shark Week, the most fin-tastic week of the year, kicks off Sunday, July 23rd at 7 p.m. CST on the Discovery Channel. To get you in the mood, we found one celebrity who has brought shark week into his own home. Before selling his Miami beach pad, rapper Lil Wayne was living that Tracy Jordan life:

Thanks to his very own shark shallows, every week was Shark Week.
Wayne's shark-infested lagoon surrounds a glass elevator leading up to the two-story master suite. Take a second to imagine that: riding up an elevator surrounded by glass...and sharks! Talk about getting up close and personal. You can definitely go ahead and cancel that cage diving excursion on your next vacation.
We have so many questions. Did Weezy hire outside help to feed the sharks and maintain the pool? How many sharks did he have and did he name them? Did he ever go swimming with them after an all-night rager with his crew? Lastly, why was "MTV Cribs" cancelled?
In non-shark related news, the rest of the home is adorned with a rooftop skate park overlooking an oceanfront view and also a (probably) shark-free swimming pool. A three-story wall of windows overlooks the home's private dock. And since he's Lil Wayne, there's obviously a recording studio, in addition to multiple kitchens and a three-car garage.
The 15,000-square-foot, nine-bedroom mansion was originally on the market for $18 million in 2015, but recently sold for $10 million. Wayne paid $11.6 million in 2011.
