A wise prophetess once asked the universe, “Beep beep, who’s got the keys to the Jeep?” Since at least the existence of MTV, rap music and cars have been an iconic duo - like Method Man and Redman, André 3000 and Big Boi, Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, and No Malice and Pusha-T. If rappers aren’t rapping about cars, what are they even rapping about? Who knows? We went to the trouble of figuring out all of your favorite rappers’ favorite cars so you don’t have to.
From Rick Ross naming his Maybach Music empire after his preferred whip, to Rae Sremmurd’s old school Buick Regal, to Quavo’s love for Lamborghinis so deep he invented a new language called “Lamb Talk” to describe it, check out all your favorite rappers’ favorite cars (in alphabetical order) below.
Aminé - Red Mercedes
Aminé loves his car so much, he wrote a whole darn song about it… Behold, an ode to his shiny red Mercedes Benz which he apparently upgraded from a mid 2000’s Honda Accord.
A$AP Rocky - 1967 Mercedes SL Cabriolet
A$AP Rocky is also a Mercedes fan, recently linking up with the brand to make cars seem cool to Millennials who probably can’t afford them. Anyway, he’s particularly fond of his 1967 Mercedes SL Cabriolet.
Cardi B - Bentley Bentayga
After catching a major W with her song “Bodak Yellow,” Cardi celebrated by shelling out for a “Bodak Orange” Bentley.
Diddy - 1958 Chevrolet Corvette
Due to the fact that he’s literally a billionaire, Diddy probably owns most noteworthy luxury cars every rapper has rapped about in the past few decades. However, his all-time favorite is his red 1956 Chevrolet Corvette convertible. Please enjoy one of the greatest moments in hip-hop history above, in which Diddy rolls up to Miami's Mansion Nightclub in a look that's peak 2005.
Drake - Rolls-Royce Phantom
While Drake has been known to ride in Bentleys, Lamborghinis, and McLarens, if his Instagram is anything to go by, the 6 God has been feeling his white Rolls-Royce Phantom and yellow Ferrari as of late.
Future - Bentley Continental GT
While Atlanta rapper Future has mentioned Maybachs quite a bit over the span of his career, he’s also a huge fan of Bentleys, featuring a chrome finish Bentley Continental GT in his iconic “Mask Off” video.
Gucci Mane - Ferrari 812 Superfast
For years now, Gucci Mane has been obsessed with Ferraris as evidenced in the video above. Earlier this year, he added a Ferrari 812 Superfast to his collection.
JAY-Z - Pagani Zonda Roadster
Priced at a casual $1.9 million, JAY-Z’s Pagani Zonda Roadster is one of his most prized whips, featured prominently in his music video “Show Me What You Got” from 2006.
Kanye West - Lamborghini Aventador
While he may not hit the car dealership as much as his peers, we do know Kanye West is a huge fan of his murdered-out Lamborghini Aventador.
Lil Pump - Porsche Cayman S
The “Gucci Gang” rapper is not one to hide his wealth, often sporting head-to-toe logo’d out designer ensembles, so it’s no surprise that his car would be equally flashy. We’d say his yellow Porsche Cayman S (which he crashed… oops!) definitely matches his out-there personality.
Lil Uzi Vert - Bentley Bentayga
Uzi may be Lil, but his Bentley Bentayga bigs him up bigtime.
Missy Elliott - Lamborghini Diablo
Missy Elliott is basically a sorceress that rarely emerges from one of her many studio lairs where she can be found producing some of the greatest songs of all time and working on her comeback album that will probably change the rap game as we know it. In her spare time, she orders Lamborghini Diablos. On its way to be delivered to her lair, her purple Diablo was taken for a joyride and subsequently totalled, and that dude ended up being sentenced to three years in prison for his silliness. Was probably worth it though…Please note the photo above is a random 1993 Diablo, and not Missy Elliott's.
Nicki Minaj - Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
Naturally Barbie herself would opt for a pink car, and a pink Lamborghini does just the trick for Nicki Minaj.
Offset - Lamborghini Aventador
Like his fellow ‘Migo Quavo, Offset also speaks Lamb Talk, recently copping a pair of his and hers Lamborghini Aventadors. In addition, he’s got a white and red Rolls-Royce Phantom he seems to be quite fond of.
Pharrell - Custom FriendsWithYou-painted Rolls-Royce Corniche
Back in the day, Pharrell’s favorite car was probably his 2003 Ferrari Enzo, but he apparently sold it for $950,000. We’ve now decided that this custom FriendsWithYou-painted Rolls-Royce Corniche convertible featured in N.E.R.D’s “Hot n’ Fun” video is his favorite car and that’s final.
Pusha-T - Ferrari 488 Spider
Pusha’s been known to favor a Rolls-Royce Phantoms, the Mercedes-Benz SLS, and the Porsche 911, but we’re going to go ahead and guess that the Ferrari 488 Spider in his “If You Know You Know” video is his new favorite.
Quavo - Lamborghini
We’ve heard Quavo of Migos and Quavo fame is into Lamborghinis. We will not reveal our source.
Rae Sremmurd - 1970s Buick Regal
A wise prophet once said, “I'm a fuckin' black Beatle, cream seats in the Regal / Rockin' John Lennon lenses, like to see ‘em spread eagle.”
Rick Ross - Maybach 57S
With a record label called Maybach Music Group, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out Rick Ross’ favorite car. However, aside from his fleet of Maybachs, including the iconic 57S, the fact that he posted a video showing his purchase of a 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith shows there’s a car in close second.
Snoop Dogg - 1967 Pontiac Parisienne, Rolls Royce
While Snoop Dogg is without a doubt a lowrider kind of guy, he gifted his classic yellow 1967 Pontiac Parisienne to Kobe Bryant a couple years back, customized in Lakers colors just for Kobe. An iconic car that he still has in his possession (as far as we know) is the Rolls-Royce he rolled up in at Nate Dogg’s funeral in 2011 (R.I.P.).
Travis Scott - Lamborghini Aventador SV
Travis Scott is a massive Lamborghini fan, featuring a Gold Lamborghini Huracán in his “Butterfly Effect” music video, and regularly stepping out in his custom Lamborghini Aventator SV.
Tyler, the Creator - McLaren
Although Tyler the Creator has apparently got a few Beemers kicking around, his gray McLaren is one of his most prized cars.
Vince Staples - Tesla
Although we have no evidence it’s been delivered yet, there’s no doubt that Vince Staples’ favorite eco-friendly, electric vehicle is the Tesla he’s been anxiously awaiting.
Young M.A - Bentley
While Young M.A’s first big car purchase was a sleek Audi A7, she’s since upgraded to a Bentley, as one does.
