After spending just over three years restoring his massive Beverly Hills estate to its peaceful Mediterranean roots, Big Sean has listed the home for $12.5 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. The rapper bought the 11,000-square-foot house for $8.7 million at the end of 2017, inheriting the eclectic style choices of its previous owner, Guns N’ Roses lead guitarist Slash.
Big Sean, né Sean Anderson, replaced Slash’s pirate-ship-shaped chandeliers and faux alligator skin wallpaper with whitewashed walls and simple recessed lighting, complementing its white stucco exterior and allowing the mansion to speak for itself. Among its amenities are a recording studio, 13-seat home theater, and dark-paneled party room with dancing pole and backlit display cabinets, plus a home gym, library, and sleek kitchen with double islands.
The property, located within a guard-gated community and spanning three stories, also holds seven bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms. The main suite includes a fireplace, sizable closet/dressing room, private terrace, and ensuite bathroom complete with glass-walled walk-in shower. Outside, the backyard is kept private with tall hedges and features a covered dining area and a large swimming pool with adjacent sun deck, hot tub, and fire pit among the manicured lawns.
Though Big Sean replaced many of Slash’s decorating flourishes, he hasn’t forgotten the home’s roots. He commemorated its former resident on his 2020 album Detroit 2, rapping, “Even bought Slash old crib, that’s rock star as it gets.”
And in a recent interview with NME, he revealed that he did in fact hold on to a few of the rock star’s additions to the home. “I renovated the whole house but I kept the night club, even though I’m not really a club guy,” he said, adding, “[Slash] left a couple of skulls on the wall that I kept. There’s also this super colorful door that I kept and a big, big painting on one of the staircases. So there’s a couple of things I kept for keepsakes, just to be like, ‘This is Slash’s,’ you know?”
