Common has avoided foreclosure on his Chicago, Illinois home after selling off the apartment for $350,000.

The Light hitmaker hit headlines in July when reports suggested he and his co-owner, manager Derek Dudley, had failed to make any mortgage payments on the property since March.

Bank of America bosses filed court documents to foreclose on the pad in a bid to recoup their cash, but Common recently settled the $345,389 debt and managed to offload the home earlier this week for slightly more than what he owed.

He and Dudley originally purchased the place several years ago for $400,000.
