Meek Mill | Aston Martin Rapide

Meek Mill from Maybach Music Group just customized his Aston Martin Rapide. He painted the entire car flat black and gold plated all the trim. To top it all off, he ordered a set of custom built 24kt gold plated Forgiato wheels. He went with the concave multispoke Disegno-ECL wheel which is a great choice.

I love the contrast between the dull flat black paint and the shiny gold trim on the car. Cant wait to see what other cars he adds to his fleet.

I wish more rappers would back up their music by actually going hard on customizing their cars.

Kanye West x Kim Kardashian | Matte Black Aventador

kanye west aventador

Say what you want about Kanye West and his arrogant demeanor but you can’t deny he’s extremely talented and certainly has plenty of pesos. And even though ‘Ye raps about the Lamborghini Murcielago on multiple tracks including his newest single, Mercy, Mr. West stepped it up to the new Lambo, the Aventador. Not only did Kanye take the Bull to the premier high-end customization outfit in LA, Platinum Motorsport to murder it out, Kanye also added the ultimate accessory, Ms. Kim Kardashian to warm the passenger seat.

Check the Platinum Motorsport video of the complete tear-down process below!

Flo Rida | Chrome Bugatti Veyron

Chrome Bugatti! Doesnt get a lot more impressive than that.
chrome bugatti

Flo Rida went pop years ago and apparently it’s paid off as we know he has a serious stable of high-end and custom cars and his new chrome Bugatti is at the top of the list.  MetroWrapz of Hollywood, FL took care of the wrapping responsibilities and we think they did a damn good job as we admire how the roof and hood  are contrasted in a matte silver. Check out a video of the chrome Bugatti in motion below. You might also like a video of this blue chrome Bugatti.

We would love to see him take the next step and add a set of custom wheels.

T-Pain | Rolls Royce Ghost on Asantis

T-Pain is one of the few rappers who actually thinks logically when it comes to choosing rims on his car. It might be because he owns his own custom shop in Atlanta, GA called Auto Extremes and knows all of the head aches that come with custom oversized rims. He tends to be very conservative with his wheel choices as you can see above.

Here is his 2011 Rolls Royce Ghost sitting on a set of 22″ Asanti wheels. He could have easily put a set of 24s on this car but decided to go more conservative. Even though the paint scheme and thick 5 spoke design looks good on this car, it is still a fail in our eyes.

You might get a smoother ride with the smaller rims but you dont get any points on our website – you might as well have kept the stock wheels!

Tyga | Gold Chrome Audi R8

tyga, gold, chrome, r8, vinyl, wrap, paint

Tyga teamed up with Roadstarr Motorsports to create this gold chrome Audi R8. At first, I thought this was just a cheap vinyl wrap on the car but after I saw it in person – I realized it was actual paint! This is a very impressive car and even though it might be too loud for most people, the quality is there.

Love to see people take chances with their cars and Tyga did just that. He got a lot of publicity from it as it is going to be featured in DUB Magazine. The wheels are staggered matte black 20″ wheels. I would have liked to see some more creativity with the wheels, no point in going conservative with the paint job thats on the car.

Plies | Maserati Quattroporte

Rapper, Plies, has a Maserati Quattroporte that was painted a custom metallic burgundy paint. He had his 22″ Forgiato Inferno wheels color matched to the car. Would have liked to see him color match the brakes as well, the red brembos really clash right next to the burgundy paint.

All the customization on the car was done by Ultimate Audio in South Carolina. The custom audio is on point in the trunk and the stance is at the right height.

Nicki Minaj | Pink Bentley Continental GT

Nicki Minaj, aka Pink Barbie Doll, just picked up a new Bentley Continental GT. This car is a perfect fit for her, matches her more than it does Paris Hilton. The only problem I have with this car is the cheap cast wheels. You go out and paint an entire Bentley in pink but you get cheap on the rims? The wheels probbably cost $200 each. She should have gotten a set of 3-piece wheels that were color matched pink and chrome two tone. Instead she chose machined wheels with a high polished lip right out of China which does not match the car at all.

Might want to use some of that plastic surgery budget for the wheels on your car Nicki.

50 Cent’s Blue Range Rover

 

This is 50 Cent’s Custom Blue Range Rover that was customized by Roadstarr Motorsports in Los Angeles. The car was painted a custom electric blue and really stands out from any other Range Rover in the streets. The car is equipped with 24″ Forgiato Sedici wheels that are custom painted chrome and blue. The tire size is 295/25/24 all around.

Love the color choice and the choice of wheels, both style and size. The only comment on this car that I have is that I wish they would have went with a nice chrome grille to match with the rest of the car. He could have put one of the new Forigato grilles or even a chrome Strut grille would have looked awesome. It would be even nicer if the grille was painted chrome with some color matched blue paint on it.

Other than the grille, this is a near perfect build on a Range.

Young Jeezy Ferrari California

Young Jeezy Ferrari California


Young Jeezy has a blacked out 2011 Ferrari California. Young Jeezy accomodates the yellow calipers and yellow ferrari badges, he threw on some black and yellow Savini wheels. All of the customization was done at Car Tunes in Atlanta.

I like the idea with going yellow on the wheels but this is way too much yellow going on with the register painted yellow, the center painted yellow, and a thin yellow pinstripe on the lip.

And if your going to smoke the tail lights, smoke them all the way!

T-Pain’s Green Impala Convertible

tpain, green, impala, joker


T-Pain is a flamboyant personality, but I think this car might even be too flamboyant for him. T-Pain’s Joker themed Impala is a Joke. What a waste of a classic car this build was. The entire car is painted green with purple airbrushing of the Joker on it with a purple top for the convertible. The interior is all purple and green. The wheels are 26″ cast wheels, green center with a chrome lip.

The worst part about it all is the quality and excellent work that was put into this car. The paint job is super clean, the airbrushing is very well done, the engine is pristine, the interior is done up along with a banging audio system.
