Naturally, their cars are immensely interesting, although somewhat over the top.

There are several types of vehicles people connect with hip hop and rap culture. From those colorful lowriders to those expensive supercars and powerful luxury SUVs, rappers are famous for adoring them all. Even the most exquisite luxury cars are often not enough for some rappers, so customizing is a regular occurrence. So keep reading to learn more about the five most interesting artists and their car collections.

  1. Kanye West

For over a decade, Kanye has been one of the leading forces in modern hip hop. An immensely talented and often controversial artist, he has a deep connection with the automotive world and not always pleasant memories. Before his rise to stardom, Kanye was involved in a bad car accident and was severely injured. Even so, he didn’t give up driving and accumulated quite a collection of luxury rides.

They include a Mercedes-McLaren SLR and Aston Martin DB9. However, the most interesting is his matte black Lamborghini Aventador that Kanye usually drives himself. It is rumored that the car has special custom touches, but no paparazzi has ever taken a good photo since Kanye’s Lambo is too fast.
