Rapper Wiz Khalifa first broke on the national scene with his love letter to Pittsburgh, titled “Black and Yellow.” The ode to his hometown Steelers has racked up 187 million Spotify streams and counting.
Here are 15 things we learned about Wiz and his home in Sherman Oaks, which he rents for a whopping $16,000 a month.
1. Location always applies
As with anyone with a keen eye for real estate, Wiz cites the home’s location as its primary attraction.
“It was a really good area. We had a look around, and I didn’t really want to be too far away from where I work and where I go to the gym and my son’s school,” he said in the video. “It was a good area for me to have privacy.”
2. Space for Sebastian
Much of the mansion’s space is dedicated to his 5-year-old son, Sebastian, whose mother is Wiz’s ex-girlfriend Amber Rose.
“I wanted to make sure he could run around and have a good time,” Wiz said.
3. Attention burglars: Don’t play yourself!
If you are a nefarious type and happen to break into a house with this artwork on the wall, Wiz wants you to know it means you’re in his home. Once you’ve spotted the plaque, you’ll need to make your way back out of the house.
His song “See You Again,” featuring Charlie Puth, was on the “Furious 7” soundtrack and has been viewed an astonishing 3.6 billion times on YouTube.
4. Game room
Wiz introduces his game room as a space for “kicking it.” It’s decked out in his signature shades of black and yellow and includes a Steelers pool table. There’s also a smoking area, a collection of vinyl records, and an even larger collection of Wiz’s career memorabilia.
5. ‘Dab bar’
Wiz calls his personal pot paradise the “dab bar,” adding the obvious: “We’re big smokers over here.”
He even has his own brand of pot, called Khalifa Kush. In the video tour, Wiz shows off his joint-rolling machine as a highlight of the dab bar.
6. Sebastian’s playroom
Wiz sweetly shows off his son’s playroom, complete with a Lego learning area, imagination station, and gum ball dispenser.
7. Nice views
Being on the deck feels like you’re “on the edge of the world,” Wiz says, noting that it’s an ideal spot for phone calls and other business affairs.
8. Wiz loves Wiz
The mansion’s walls are lined with pictures of its most famous resident.
9. Wiz’s favorite room
The room Wiz calls “his baby” is the fully equipped recording studio.
“This is like a fighter jet; it’s like a little spaceship,” he explains, noting that hard drives with all of his work are in an undisclosed secure location.
10. Loft closet
It turns out Wiz is also a bit of a clotheshorse. For more closet space, he’s turned the loft area atop the stairs into a closet for his jackets and signature pieces.
11. Weed wall
Also upstairs is a wall of portraits with one thing in common: Each subject is or was a known stoner.
Willie Nelson, Snoop Dogg, Jimi Hendrix, and Bob Marley are just a few of the famous faces gracing the wall.
“I just like to be among greatness,” Wiz explains.
12. ‘Grown-up vibe’
The living room, which is decked out in a cool, turquoise blue, has a “grown-up vibe,” according to the rapper.
13. Heated pool
Out back there’s a playful paradise, including Sebastian’s trampoline. There’s also a pool, which Wiz thoughtfully points out is heated.
“You’ll never be cold in my pool,” he promises.
14. Sebastian’s cars
Yes, Sebastian has a fleet of kid-size cars, including a tiny Range Rover, Kawasaki ATV, and Rolls-Royce.
15. Wiz’s cars
Wiz unsurprisingly has a car collection of his own. It includes a 1964 Impala, a 1962 Impala, and another classic monster car he says was a gift from Rose after an argument.
“She wanted me to not be mad at her, so she bought me a car,” he says.
Yes, Wiz is a long way from Pittsburgh, but one thing is clear: He is killing it in Los Angeles and can invite us over for a swim in the heated pool any day of the week.
