Rapper Bryan Williams, better known by stage name, Birdman, abandoned his massive Louisiana mansion shortly after Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005.

And it appears he hasn’t returned since.

The 10,948 -foot property was damaged as a result of the devastating storm, which killed more than 1,800 people.

Now, the eerie New Orleans home has sat vacant and idle for more than 15 years.

The home is worth an estimated $650,000 today, according to Realtor, which is reasonable considering the area is prone to flooding and natural disasters.

Built in 1990, the house has five bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Features of the three-story structure include two hot tubs, a sauna and a swimming pool — which appears murky and neglected.

The expansive master bedroom contains a hot tub with a built-in fireplace.

Other amenities of the home include a private theater, an elevator and a glass room with a private bar.

The home features marble flooring and glass doors throughout, and boasts a four-car garage.

The top floor of the mansion, painted red, is a built-in studio once used to produce and record music.

The mansion was featured in the music video for Birdman and Lil Wayne’s 2005 song, “Neck of the Woods.”

Before the Cash Money Records founder purchased the home in 2004, it belonged to NFL star Pat Swilling, who played linebacker for the New Orleans Saints in the 1990s.

In November, Birdman finally unloaded his Miami Beach mansion at a loss — for $10.9 million — following a series of foreclosure proceedings. He initially purchased the Florida home back in 2012 for $14.5 million from Rockstar Energy Drink founder Russell Weiner, property records show.

Birdman and Toni Braxton, who have been on-and-off since 2016, reportedly tied the knot in February.

And Birdman isn’t the only celebrity to have abandoned a mansion. Rapper Nelly recently sold his abandoned St. Louis, Missouri, pad for $600,000.
