Platinum rapper Élie Yaffa, better known as "Booba," recently sold his home on the highly desirable Meridian Avenue in Miami Beach to restaurant mogul, Nick Smith, tied to the area's hottest restaurants, including KOMODO in Brickell. Booba, who rose to prominence in France during the late 90s and early 2000s, is a double-platinum artist inspired by rap icons like Wu-Tang Clan, Mobb Deep, Biggie Smalls, and Tupac. Booba is also the founder of the popular French apparel brand, Ünkut.

Booba purchased the home located at 2315 Meridian Avenue in 2016 for $3.7 million and sold the house to Smith for $6.1 million in one of the latest, most-notable, off-water sales in Miami Beach. Mathieu Rochette, Vice President of MGroup, brought Booba to this home in 2016 and was the agent of record for Booba's original purchase of the property. This five-bedroom, five-bathroom bright, modern, sophisticatedly tropical home boasts an oversized lot with nearly 5,000 square feet of living space, developed by the renowned group, Sabal Development, founded by Pascal Nicolai, specializing in luxury custom homes. The open floor plan and seamless indoor-outdoor living space make this the ultimate entertainment oasis, with views of the Miami Beach Golf Club.

"The Miami market continues to be strong for buyers and sellers," said Mathieu Rochette. With more than 20 years of experience living and selling real estate in Miami Beach, Rochette dedicates himself to providing clients with his full attention and stands by his promise to administer the highest quality of service, with his success seen through frequent repeat business. In addition, as a long-time Miami Beach resident, Rochette has countless relationships and a strong network throughout the city. "Miami Beach has been my home for the last 20 years, and I could not imagine living elsewhere. So I sell what I know, love, and know the most about - and that's Miami Beach."
