Dr. Dre has popped his Hollywood Hills West home on the market at $35 million.
He's selling because he recently dropped $40 million on the four-acre Brentwood estate of supermodel and actress Gisele Bundchen and her husband, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
The rapper closed on that compound two days after Apple Inc. officially announced it had acquired Beats, the company he co-founded with Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine, for $3 billion.
The contemporary estate he just listed has 9,696 square feet of living space and includes a library/media room, a den, a wine cellar, six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
There's a guesthouse and a swimming pool on the three-quarter-acre lot, which has 300-degree views of the city, mountains and ocean.
In addition to co-founding Beats, Dr. Dre, 49, is the founder and chief executive of Aftermath Entertainment.
The Grammy winner and record producer bought the property in 2011 for $15.4 million. He has worked with Snoop Dogg, Eminem and 50 Cent, among others.
Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency is the listing agent and represented Dr. Dre in his purchase. The Brady-Bundchen mansion was listed by Rappaport and Stephen Shapiro, also of Westside Estate Agency.
A new scene for their acts?
Megan Fox of the "Transformers" films and Brian Austin Green of "Beverly Hills, 90210" fame have listed their home in Los Feliz for sale at $3.995 million.

The one-third-acre lot has a swimming pool and panoramic views of the city and ocean.
Fox, 28, will star in the summer action comedy "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." She was on the series "Hope & Faith" from 2004 to 2006. She is also a model.
Green, 40, has been on "Anger Management" since it started two years ago. He will star in the upcoming horror film "Don't Blink." Green is also a rapper.

Funnyman buys at fire-sale price
Howie Mandel must be in the mood for a building project. He just purchased three acres of vacant residential property in Encino for the fire-sale price of $1.2 million.
No, that's not just a turn of phrase. The home that was once on the site burned down, according to 2010 marketing materials in the Multiple Listing Service.
Among previous homeowners was singer-songwriter Annie Lennox of Eurythmics. She paid $1.4 million for the site, and house, in 1986.
Mandel, 58, is a judge on "America's Got Talent" and has his own production company, Alevy Productions. The onetime stand-up comic has scores of television credits as an actor, producer and game show host. He was the mainstay of "Deal or No Deal" from 2005 to 2010.
Barry Sloane and Marc Silver of Sotheby's International Realty handled the transaction.

Beach house is their latest production
Michael Manheim and Janus Cercone have listed a home in Malibu for sale at $9.985 million.
They built the house through their company, Jaman Properties, which has sold homes to actress Fran Drescher, "The Simpsons" creator Matt Groening and late-night TV show host Conan O'Brien, among others.
Called the Stone House, the modern-style residence has 50 feet of beachfront and a Pinot Noir vineyard. There's a walled courtyard with a fountain, a waterfront deck with a fire pit, an outdoor audio system and parking for five cars. The house is on a private road with gated access to Pacific Coast Highway for additional parking.
Living spaces include a great room, living and dining areas, a media room, three bedrooms and four bathrooms. The master suite takes up the entire upstairs of the home and features a deck, an ocean-view tub and a steam room.
Manheim has produced films including "Roe vs. Wade" (1989), "Leap of Faith" (1992) and "Dirty Pictures" (2000). Cercone wrote the screenplay for "Leap of Faith," which also became a Broadway musical.
Ellen Francisco of Coldwell Banker is the listing agent.
