Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash recently sold his Mulholland Estates home for $8.7 Million to rapper Big Sean. TMZ caught up with Big Sean who had this to say about his new purchase: “I’ma definitely leave a couple [things]. It’s too classic to take it all off,” he told TMZ. “I’ma leave all the skulls in the recording studio.”
