Grammy-winning rapper Cheryl ‘Salt’ James has listed her lush six-bedroom Long Island home for $1.525 million, it was revealed on Wednesday. 

The 54-year-old singer’s upcoming move from the property, equipped with a soundproof music studio and a home gym, comes two decades after she initially purchased it for $1.05 million, according to Dirt. 

Her nearly 6,000 traditional three-story red brick mansion sits on nearly an acre of ‘lushly manicured grounds at the end of a long, prettily tree-lined cul-de-sac,’ which offers ample privacy from the street.

The hip-hop pioneer’s expansive living room was complete with a white baby grand piano at the end of a curved staircase, which faces a large window and provides residents with a beautiful view and plenty of natural light.  

Among some of her unique decor is a wall of custom built-ins showcase for her collection of gold and platinum albums next to a cozy couch, which guests could sit on as she tickled the ivories.

As for her dining area, the home, located in the affluent suburban hamlet of Melville about 30 miles east of Manhattan and 90 miles west of Montauk, has both an area for formal meals and a center island kitchen.

The backyard is an entertainer’s dream with a ‘partially covered terrace outside the recreation room and a grassy yard that slopes toward a dense forest of mature trees and foliage.’ 

The home gym is pretty impressive with a number of workout machines, mirrors and yellow walls.

Snub: News of her home on the market comes after her former Salt-N-Pepa bandmate member Deidra Roper made headlines for saying she was ‘wrongfully excluded’ from their group’s Lifetime biopic

DJ Spinderella spoke up about her awkward omission from Lifetime’s upcoming Salt-N-Pepa biopic, that she was left out on Twitter.

At the time, her bandmates James and Sandra ‘Pepa’ Denton were promoting the three-hour special, that aired last month, explaining how they both played an integral part in telling the hip-hop group’s trailblazing story (and have executive producer credits on the film.)

However, it appears after years of bad blood between the three rappers, Roper was not invited to give her input into the dramatization, which charts the band’s success after first forming in 1985, and releasing their iconic hip-hop single Push It in 1987.
