Rappers and Luxury Cars
On any given summer day driving through South Florida you are certain to catch glimpses of the most exclusive luxurious cars in the world. Since the late 90’s South Florida has been a home and destination hot-spot for the most famous rappers. But what do rappers and the luxury cars in S. Florida have in common? Well between 2004 and 2016 the luxury car rental industry in South Florida made an amazing $680,000,000.

From South Florida rap natives like Rick Ross and Pitbull to rappers traveling to South Florida to shoot their music videos or just chill. The luxury car rental industry is ready at all times to cater the finest, expensive and most exclusive cars around to these rappers.
It’s no surprise the sun, beaches and bikinis attracts the likes of rappers from every corner of the nation. Since the late 1990’s when awards shows and music conferences relocated to South Florida rappers have been moving and vacationing in South Florida.
South Florida’s tropical climate and luxurious lifestyles has become a must for music videos.
Rappers Frequently Seen with Exotic Cars
In the early 2000’s, rappers from Cash Money Records Lil Wayne and Birdman made their move to buy homes in S. Florida. Becoming S. Floridians was no cheap task. According to Lil Wayne’s accountant, the rapper has spent millions of dollars on the rentals of luxury and exotic cars in S. Florida alone. There might not be an estimate for Birdman’s spending on rentals but judging by the bright red Bugatti Veyron Super Sport in front of his mansion in his “Fire Flame” music video we imagine it’s a lot!
Some of a preferable exclusive luxury auto rentals chosen by famous rappers are listed below.
• Rolls Royce Phantom
• Rolls Royce Continental
• Rolls Royce Ghost
• Lamborghini Aventador
• Ferrari 599 GTB
• Mercedes Maybach
• Bentley Mulsanne
The average rental price for any of these is usually between 2 or $3,000 (a much higher price than ours)
A native Floridian rapper who is no stranger to luxury and exotic cars in South Florida is Rick Ross. During an interview for a nationwide radio station during the summer, “Ricky” stated his budget for music videos filmed in South Florida range between 3 and $400,000 that included the rental of a few “nice cars”.
During Rick Ross latest video for “Buy Back The Block,” there is a scene with 2 Rolls Royce Phantoms and a Mercedes S Series. I’m sure the rental insurance for Ricky is also exclusive being that in January of 2013 the rapper was the target of a drive-by shooting while he was in his Rolls Royce. Thankfully no one was hurt, but the car did receive an extensive amount of damage. Costing the rapper a significant amount of money to fix.
Along with love for sexy ladies, luxurious pool areas and mega yachts Cuban-American and Miami-native Pitbull is an avid car enthusiast. Luxury autos are the center piece of Pitbull’s car collection with more than ten exclusive and exotic cars in this rappers garage; each car is easily worth more the $200,000, collectively that’s a lot of money!
It would not be a strange sight to see Pitbull riding one of his beauties through South Florida.
