Listen to the radio, preferably a station which broadcasts RnB, Hippedy-Hop-Hop or standard Pop, and I can guarantee that you will hear a brand name mentioned in the lyrics within 5 minutes. It’s become a well known fact that singers are some of the best marketers around, capable of bringing even the most bizarre of products into the limelight and onto the tips of teenagers’ tongues across the globe.

Rappers are no different and the “best in the business” have lavish sponsorship deals and manage to rival earnings to those of A-list fame. How rappers and mere celebrités do differ however is in the way they spend their bucks, and on the wheels they purchase and cruise in on a daily basis. Car Throttle – your performance car experts – are here to show you the world’s Top 50 Rapper Stars and Their Cars.

    i’m sorry, how did Ludacris get his hands on a one-off Chrysler concept car?

    and also, how about The Streets? whats their lead singer drive :)

    nice post Adnan

  • NIVI

    are u serious james? ludia owns his own record label, he has this sytle about him that is unique. anything he touches sales and your sitting here asking how? and he produce, more beats then you’ll ever know. LET ME PUT IT IN ENGLISH FOR U.. HE GOT MONEY! the man is smart and talented. and im staying this off the top of my head. do ya homework.
    P.S sounds like you jealous to me, stop hatin on the man be happy for him.

    and i came across this my accident.

  • http://www.tehcarblogz.com James

    well NIVI, I’m sure Luda is a special dude, but that still doesn’t mean he can acquire a car that never really existed past the prototype stage. Something about a major corporation being unwilling to sell a non roadgoing prototype worth billions to a rap star.

  • The Watcher


    Hey NIVI, I’m with James on this one. Do your research before u comment. That Chrysler never went past the prototype stage, so there is no way Luda would own that car. Maybe u don’t know what a prototype is and how cars eventually go into production. I’ll bet u even the top boss of Chrysler doesn’t own that Chrysler.

    • The Man

      Actually, YOU should do your research Watcher. The Maybach Exelero was a one off car built for testing tires. Yet that didn’t stop Birdman from buying it. I’m not sure what you think you know about the prototype process, but often manufactures, especially ones in financial trouble, will often sell off their one offs and prototypes to raise cash rather than destroy them. Before you criticize someone else you should should probably know what you’re talking about.

    • Kyle

      Well they only ever made 2 Chrylser ME four twelves. One was for showcasing and the other was for ludacris. And chrysler goes well off. They have made good cars. The 200, the 300c, the Minivan, idk the name of it. It wasn’t really a prototype, just a concept car. Trust me, if Chrysler made that car, I’d buy it myself.

  • Gonzo

    That is the 1967 Plymouth Fury is the nicest car imho.

    A lambo seems to be a little uncreative.

  • ed

    Missy Elliott does not own any Lamborghini. She just rents those when mtv is around or when she makes a public appearance.

  • Hello

    I Do believe that is a Dodge Magnum in the back of Lil Bow Wows pic

    • Peter Brousseau

      Youre right, its a dodge magnum

  • http://facebook.com Jericho

    11. Coolio — 1996 Hummer H2…. Hmmm 1996 H2. The guy who wrote this is not awera that the car in that pic is H1.

    40. Lil Bow Wow — Bentley Continental GT, Lamborghini Gallardo and Range Rover Sport…. Thats not a RR Sport but a vogue.

    31. Twista — Mercedes-Benz S63 and Mercedes-Benz SL550… Where do ya see an Sl on this pic? This is CL

    People need to understand that these “stars” have worked on their talents for a long time and the money did not just come to them. They had to bust their asses to get where they are today.
    If you had that kind of money, you probably might have spent it on those things also. It is not a crime to spend hard earned money on the things that you desire when you have enough to spare. Also, America is the land of opportunity and I am a self made man. Anybody can make money in America.

  • Ruthless

    Where Iz Eazy’s Impala ?!

  • Jay

    All of the cars are hot but the best are the Mercedes CLS500 and Lamborghini Gallardo and Murcielago!

    Luda probably had that car built for him. What you are calling the prototype is just the body, It doesnt have to be the exact thing.

  • MNM

    The hummer h2 is the best no comp suckers

    Snoop Dogs car is more likely a 1966 Pontiac Bonneville. Not that I could care less about crap music. But the cars are fun. Love the 67 Plymouth.

  • ching

    Im pretty sure wayne has 2 veyrons now

    • Michael weezy

      yea he does,he has two now.

  • Mark Richards

    what a bunch of fake, materialistic morons. All the music sounds the same, has the same message:
    1. I came from the ghetto
    2. Now I’ve got lots of money
    3. I’m gonna rub it in your face

    Cue the stereotypical music video, girls ( bitches as they call them) fast cars, money, cash, bling

    Once you’ve seen one rap video, you’ve seen them all, all of these guys dress the same, act the same, sing the same…

    Bring back Tribe and De La Soul

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=2734772 James

      you’re not alone in that thought Mark. I’m not a fan. For some anti-consumerism, check out Cake’s new album “Showroom of Compassion.” It’s an epic journey into anti-materialism, clad with bluesy rythms and deep bass.

  • connor hudson

    50 cent has an enzo, and do scott stark his car collection is ridiculous

  • manu muringi

    @Connor- who the hell is Scott Stark???? and 50 doesnt own an enzo (it was rented)- but ofcourse he could own one if he wanted

    how come this list doesnt make mention of the Veyrons some of these guys own (Flo rida and T pain got veyrons)……the rapper with possibly the most unique car would have to be Wyclef (the mclaren F1)

    • http://twitter.com/ManAboutIt Man About It

      He probably means Scott STORCH

    • John

      Lmao rented Enzo? Right..do some research on what it takes to even be considered to own an enzo.

  • Aaliyah

    Lil Wayne got a Bugatti !

  • http://twitter.com/ManAboutIt Man About It

    This gallery looks like it was taken at a Lambo meet where only industry dudes got the invites. I’m not moved by cars that aren’t really for enthusiasts so much as to show you can afford what you see in the Robb Report.

    If there were more VINTAGE exotics, more stuff like Chamillionaire’s Fury, more wild buildups, more imagination in general, that would get my attention. Me being from L.A. and an enthusiast, you’ve seen one of these current-model exotics, you’ve seen ‘em all.

    • John

      Seriously, you cant tell these are random photos from around the web?

  • pero

    Snoop’s car is not a 1969. Buick Riviera.

  • blendi

    Eminem doesn’t have a hummer h2 , he has 2004 callidac escalade I saw it on the briefcafe joe :D

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=2734772 James

      He’s Eminem. he’s probably had a lot of (stupid) cars.

    That’s right. You know you’re jealous.

  • Himan

    Awesome cars ! Lamborghini Gallardo to Rolls Royce !
    They are big dads man !

  • John

    lol@these random comments..

    Understand the rapper of today is not like that of yesterday. These guys have teams of financial advisors, that guide them to make big time investments in every sub-culture in the industry..clothing, cologne, sneakers, hotels, bars etc..When you have money in that much stuff, theirs not much u “cant” buy. And no car production car cost BILLIONs to make. Even Concepts do not cost over 500million to make. lmao be serious. its a CAR, not a spaceship.

  • Robert

    The “1969 Riviera in Snoop’s pic is obviously a Pontiac. Soulja Boy’s “Chrysler 300″ is actually a early-mid 50′s Ford or Mercury and Plies “1968 Pontiac Grand Prix” certainly is not in the pic. People that try to write car related articles should have a basic understanding of “cars”

  • Nichoalee

    there so amazing hahahaha :)

    does ludacris have a TV screen on the steering wheel of that chrysler concept

    9: T-Pain has a sick collection of monster trucks and supercars… you picked this??
    11: That is an old H1, H2 did not even exist…
    13: That is a normal Phantom, Drophead did not exist and Wayne has never had a Drophead.
    31: That is a CL… an SL is a very different car…
    32: Pharrell swapped that for an Enzo, and has since swapped that for a Bugatti. Do your homework.
    Also, about 7 of these rappers have stupidly blown money on Bugattis now, but not one featured? It is the fastest and one of the most expensive cars on earth…

    • http://www.carthrottle.com Adnan

      Thanks for dropping by, John. As you will have seen, this article was posted back in April 2009. It’s safe to say that these guys have had a few car changes in the time that’s elapsed since…

  • robert drexler

    Are there other music artists in other genre’s besides hipity hoe hop making the same money. If not that’s b_ll sh_t.

    • http://www.carthrottle.com Adnan

      Yes, it’s just rappers are easily the most obnoxious when it comes to spending on motors. And, well, that just makes for better posts ;)
