Check Out These Awesome Rap Star Rides

Rap culture moves to the beat of big ballers dropping dollars on luxury everything. Some of the best lyricists of the past century also own some of the best rides. From Lamborghini’s to Bugattis to little known brands, rappers drive them all. Some of the biggest names in music drive ride in cars from the ’70s, while others tackle traffic in massive SUVs, but it is the sports cars that draw the most attention. While most rappers don’t spend every day on the run, some of these rides would make it a breeze to leave the po-po far behind. Others might have the speed, but the one-of-a-kind lines or custom finishes make these cars impossible to hide. And why not? If you can afford a Veyron or a McLaren F1, flaunt it.

15Maybach 57S - Rick Ross

Maybach 57S - Rick Ross

Former corrections officer Rick Ross hung up his badge for the world of rap with the release of his first album in 2006. Since then, his career has rocketed straight to the top, and his taste in cars matches his new annual income. The Maybach 57S – he owns two of these beauties – is powered by a V12 engine that pours on the speed, going from 0 to 60 mph in just under 5 seconds.

14Bentley Continental - Soulja Boy

Bentley Continental - Soulja Boy

Soulja Boy, the frontman for Stacks on Deck Entertainment and artist behind the number one hit, “Crank That,” is also a bit of a car aficionado. His Bentley Continental is a true luxury vehicle with a starting price tag of $175K for the base model. His cherry red, two-door coupe combines sleek lines and retro styling with a powerful V12 engine. The option to choose from seven different colors for the interior lighting is the least essential, but one that makes it fun to photograph and party in.

13Lamborghini Aventador - Kanye West

Lamborghini Aventador - Kanye West

Rapper Kanye West is one of the world’s billionaires, and it all started with the release of his first album, The College Dropout. Today, his hip hop inspired fashion has put him over the top as one of the wealthiest men in America and helped to fuel his love of fast, powerful supercars, like the Lamborghini Aventador. The Aventador is the car for sports stars, celebs and car lovers with its 217 mph top speed and 7-speed gearbox. The matte on matte black on the exterior turns this Lambo into a statement piece that matches the rap star vibe.

12Pagani Zonda Roadster F - Jay-Z

Pagani Zonda Roadster F - Jay-Z

When you’re Jay-Z and have more than ten platinum albums and the most number of Grammy’s of any rapper, you can drive whatever you want – and he does. A Pagani Zonda Roadster starts at $1.9M, which is a heck of a lot more than pocket change. Of course with performance stats like 641 hp, 575 lb-ft of torque and a curb weight of just 2,712-lbs, the price might be fair. Jay-Z’s roadster is white and black with red accents. Since only 25 of these cars were ever produced, Jay-Z won’t have any trouble picking his car out of a parking lot.

11Maybach 62 Landaulet - Birdman

Maybach 62 Landaulet - Birdman

Birdman has claimed a luxury car collection of more than 50 rides, but the Maybach 62 Landaulet is in a class all its own. With a $1.4M price tag, this vehicle epitomizes luxury. The back is fitted with its own rear retractable roof, and the privacy screens keep meeting details private. This is a car meant to maximize relaxation while on the road. With Birdman in the back and a professional behind the wheel, it’s hard to imagine a more comfortable way to get around.

10Bugatti Veyron - Flo Rida

Bugatti Veyron - Flo Rida

Flo Rida joins a multitude of famous faces in his Bugatti Veyron. Simon Cowl, David Beckham and dozens of other superstars also drive is a monstrously powerful car. With a top speed of 268 mph, the Bugatti Veyron is one of the fastest production cars in the world. The W16 engine produces more than 1,000 horsepower with turbocharging, and at top speeds burns more than 1.33 gallons of gas per minute. The $1.7M price tag is totally justified by some awe-inspiring performance stats.

9Lamborghini Murcielago - 50 Cent

Lamborghini Murcielago - 50 Cent

The Lamborghini Murcielago has iconic status among rap artists and has earned the nickname, Mercy in many songs. Before the release of the Aventador, the Murcielago was the Lambo flagship driven by some of the most influential people in the music industry. With a starting price of $350K, it wasn’t the most expensive supercar on the market, but it certainly had enough oomph to draw in stars like 50 Cent. Only 4,099 of these ever rolled off the production floor.

8DUB Edition Mustang 5 - Nelly

DUB Edition Mustang 5 - Nelly

When manufacturers custom-build their flagship cars to spec for you, you know you’ve made. When the DUB Edition Mustang 5 was unveiled at SEMA in 2010, it was an ode to Nelly, and he returned the favor naming his album, 5.0 after his car. This all-black muscle car takes a seriously aggressive road stance with 24″ wheels on the back and 22″ wheels on the front, so it stares you down as it growls down the road.

7Dodge Challenger - Wiz Khalifa

Dodge Challenger - Wiz Khalifa

Wiz Khalifa exploded onto the music scene in 2006 with his album, Show and Prove. He’s also hit the magazine covers for his classic take on American muscle cars. No, this young hitmaker doesn’t drive around in a million-dollar Italian sports car. Instead, he’s keepin’ it real with a Dodge Challenger. The starting price tag is a moderate $34K, and even with the custom retro styling; it’s an affordable car. Add in the Citrus accents to an all-black vehicle, and you have something eye-catching, yet unpretentious.

61974 Cadillac - Snoop Dogg

1974 Cadillac - Snoop Dogg

Snoop is known for his classic cars, and many of them are Caddys. This 1974 Cadillac features all of the customizations that Snoop Dogg is known for. It’s got huge wheels, an airlifted suspension and rides real low. The original low-rider always drives around in cars carefully laid back for his enjoyment. If he’s not in a Caddy, expect to see the Dawg in a Chevrolet Impala. This rap superstar believes in the miracle of American automotive engineering and stays true to his roots.

5Hummer H2 - Eminem

Hummer H2 - Eminem

Eminem is known for his amazing ability to spit rapid-fire lyrics and his split-personality take on recording, but cars aren’t really his thing. Sure, you might see some sleek lines and aerodynamics in the videos, but when this rapper hits the street, it’s behind the wheel of a Hummer H2 – one of the closest things you get to a military vehicle. While it doesn’t have guns mounted to return fire, it’s certainly big enough to be imposing and offer a comfortable ride.

4Spyker C8 Aileron - Akon

Spyker C8 Aileron - Akon

The C8 Aileron comes from a small, Dutch company that produces solid sports cars with incredible lines and styling. Akon, with five Grammy nominations under his belt, must have been looking for something a little different, and he found it. While now out of production, the C8 Aileron uses a mid-mounted V8 for 525 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. All that wrapped up in a paperwhite exterior with a custom yellow interior, and you’ve got a ride sure to turn some heads.

3McLaren Mp4-12C - Will.I.am

McLaren Mp4-12C - Will.I.am

Will.I.am, a famous member of the Black Eyed Peas, is also known for his custom cars. He takes cars you might see on the road every day and turns them into something unique, with a little help from West Coast Customs. With the McLaren Mp4-12C, the only customization is with the color and interior colors. The design is pretty much flawless to start in a car that goes from 0 to 60 mph in under three seconds.

2McLaren F1 - Wyclef Jean

McLaren F1 - Wyclef Jean

Wyclef Jean bought one of the best cars ever to go into production – the McLaren F1. The F1 was the fastest car on the road for more than a decade, and it still posts numbers that make it competitive against the cars of today. With only 106 ever made between 1992-1998, the F1 is a rare find. The sleek lines might be more than 25 years old, but they look modern. Wyclef Jean’s F1 is still in the original mid-blue pearl color, and valuation estimates put it above $10M today. Not bad for a car with an original MSRP of $815,000.

1Maybach Exelero - Jay-Z/Birdman

Maybach Exelero - Jay-Z/Birdman

The one-of-a-kind Maybach Exelero never made it into production. It was a concept car and carried the price tag to match. Rumors estimate it is valued at $8M, but who knows? After all, rumors that Birdman bought this beast were a bit offbase, along with rumors that legendary collector Jay-Z was the owner. The actual owner of this ride is a German company that restores classics and updates them with modern tech, Mechatronik. Both Jay-Z and Birdman have been behind the wheel of the Maybach Exelero, but neither rap superstar is the owner of record.
