Big Sean Bought His Mansion From This Rockstar, Complete With a Nightclub

Big Sean is known for his braggadocious lyrics and stage presence. The Detroid-bred rapper is also known for his love of the finer things in life — and that includes his home.

In May 2021, Big Sean welcomed Architectural Digest into his home and gave fans everywhere an inside look at how the “Bezerk” rapper lives.

Big Sean bought his Beverly Hills mansion from Slash

Guns ‘n’ Roses guitarist Slash sold his $8.7 million mansion in Beverly Hills to Big Sean in 2017. Since then, Sean has renovated much of the 11,000 square-foot property and made it his own, complete with many luxurious touches.

“Originally this was Slash’s house from Guns ‘n’ Roses, so it has a lot of history,” he revealed to Architectural Digest. “The whole house used to be kind of like a darker Gothic tone, and I kind of brightened the whole thing up.”

Big Sean kept some of the things Slash had in the house

“There’s a few things that I kept from Slash,” Sean said as he continued to walk through his house, “this being one of them.” One of the relics of the house’s former owner that Sean kept is a sliding pocket door that leads to the living room. The door is made of multicolored stained glass and is reminiscent of a Gothic-era church similar to what he described.

“Yo, this is a freaky door,” he laughed as he pulled the door out.

In addition to a gym and other amenities, Sean’s house also contains a full-fledged movie theater that seats over a dozen people. “This is where I watch most of my stuff,” he said as he walked into the home theater. “Sopranos, Star Wars, Dragon Ball Z — whatever.”

Big Sean’s mansion has a nightclub

As he continued his house tour, he took the cameras downstairs into a full-fledged nightclub. “This is something that was already a part of the house, but I re-did the whole thing,” he said of the club. “I kept a few things from Slash, though.”

“I didn’t really change the design of it; it was always kind of like this — all black everything,” he continued. “I got the exact same couches that he had in here before, but I just got new ones because I don’t know what the f*ck he was doing down here.”

Even though they aren’t his personal style, Sean even kept the skull lights on the wall, noting the iconic connection between skulls and Guns ‘n’ Roses. He also didn’t touch the stripper pole in the middle of the club, but specified that it has been “completely, completely sanitized” since he’s taken ownership of the house.
