Have a ton of money and no idea what to do with it? Take some inspiration from these rappers who know how to buy expensive crazy stuff.
What do you when you have hip hop money burning a hole in your pocket? These rappers will show you how to get rid of those hard-earned dollars as fast as you can make em.
It seems like a part of the culture to flaunt your wealth once you get it in the hip hop scene. Normally, most rappers find themselves with a ton of money and no clue what to do with it all after they’ve bought a house, cars, and new clothes. When it comes to crazy new ways for parting with their hard-earned dollars, rappers know how to impress us. Even so, we’ve managed to find nine rappers who took the spending game one step too far, with these unbelievable purchases!
9. Lil Baby
Lil Baby is known for buying out a lot of Icebox Jewelry’s bling, like any upcoming rapper, but this one was a little extra. He loves his son, so Lil Baby bought his 5-year-old a child-sized Rolex, complete with strap and dial covered in diamonds. The trouble is that children grow quickly, and at a whopping $8,000, this watch probably won’t fit within a year. He also bought a $25,000 chain with 7 carats of diamonds spelling his son’s name. Those two purchases make his son richer than most of us though!
8. The Game
The Game loves his cars and has a pretty sick collection, but cars depreciate over time so it’s less of an investment and more of something to enjoy without thinking about that hole burning in your pocket. The Game bought a Bugatti Veyron for a cool $2.2million back in 2012 and had it decked out in black and yellow gloss outside, complete with yellow alloys, and red leather inside. He starred in reality TV show She’s Got Game, which helped pay for his sweet ride, but earlier this year he lost a sexual assault case relating to the show and had to pay out $7million so that depreciating value hasn’t helped.
Earlier this year, Tyga got in touch with the jeweler to the stars, Ben Baller, to get a custom diamond chain made for a whopping $500,000. It features St Michael treading on his haters, also known as the devil. The whole chain including the clasp is covered in diamonds too. He even had smaller versions made for his entire entourage. Tyga thinks this is the best in the game, what do you think?
Drake did some of the biggest flexin’ you could think of by buying his neighbor’s property for $2.5million. He’s just doing his friends a favor, right? Oh no. The neighbor made a complaint about the noise coming from Drake’s Hidden Hills, California home so he bought the neighbor out and now owns a combined 12,000 square feet of space to party as much as he wants, and as loud as he wants.
5. Soulja Boy
Soulja Boy’s main hit Crank Dat manages to provide him with so much money that he doesn’t quite know what to do with it. The reason he tops Tyga in the outrageous chain-bling competition is that his chain features a fully functional, remote-controlled black Lamborghini. The Lambo is covered in black diamonds to match his black pinky-ring and bracelets and is attached to a black chain, so when it drives along it pulls the chain with it. This impractical toy came in at $200,000.
4. Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne needed braces, and instead of going to a regular dentist or picking up the trendy invisible braces, he went full-on diamond and spent $150,000 having them implanted into his teeth to keep them straight. It puts a whole new angle on showing us that dazzling smile!
3. 21 Savage
After spending most of 2018 announcing that he would no longer buy jewelry because he never saw other incredibly wealthy people wearing the same kind of bling that hip-hop stars wear, 21 Savage spent $500,000 on a pair of earrings. Losing just one of those in the sink could make for some heartbreaking news!
Birdman is notorious for spending ridiculous amounts of money while forgetting to pay his artists. Back in 2012, amidst the drama between him and rappers like Lil Wayne and Tyga for not paying them, Birdman spent $14.5million on a 19,000 square foot mansion in Miami. Not everything lasts though, just last year he was ordered to vacate the mansion after it was uncovered that he used a loan to pay for the mansion, which he didn’t pay off.
In number one position for good reason is Future and his monthly spending habits of $300,000 a month on clothing. That’s $3.6million a year, just on clothes. He’s admitted that this habit is bad, but he also goes shopping every day so he must be addicted to retail therapy.
