Waste of $8m. Rather buy an Ariel Atom for fun and a Bugatti Veyron for status.

Do these rappers have financial planners like NBA/NFL athletes do?

I hear that he's actually pretty good with investments.

That aside, a lot of it is just for show. Not that he doesn't have millions, but don't believe everything. For example, a while back on Lil Wayne's birthday a couple of years ago, there was buzz about Baby having given Lil Wayne a suitcase with a million dollars in it for his birthday:



But everyone who has ever handled stacks of money (or at least has functioning eyes) knows that the blue wrappers bundling the bills are for one-dollar bills. You're looking at stacks of ones with a Benjamin on top.

What's there to buzz about with a Maybach? Yes, let me pimp around in my stretched Merc.

edit: I should have clicked the link. Didn't realize it looks that different physically. Still an ugly car though.

Uh...I wonder if he knows that half his "hood" is still underwater and impoverished?

$8,000,000.00 could build a lot of houses, feed a lot of faces, and provide medicine to his "hood"....

Just saying....and it would be a tax write off so technically he would make it back next year from the gov't

So when Birdman goes down like MC Hammer (who lives in the not-so-lavish Tracy, CA), people will be questioning why...but you'll know the reason.

Maybe we're giving this guy too much credit. Majority of these guys glorify violence, prostitution, drugs, etc. So, I really don't expect them to turn into a Blake Mycoskie.

True but even after Katrina, Wayne was standing outside helping people pickup that said something to the effect of "Come back to New Orleans, The hood needs you"

While these "guys" glorify guns, violence, prostitution, etc...this is not representative of their lifestyle most of the time. It has been acknowledged that many rappers just rap about those things because they know they will sell.
With that being said, take a look at actors. In movies actors glorify violence, guns, prostitution, drugs etc...Why? Because it will sell.

It is all about marketing...as much as people think these rappers are dumb/unintelligent they have figured out a way to make millions of dollars off of the public and in birdman's case, a hundred million dollars.

It's just a matter of perspective.

Out of curiosity, what about when directors and producers put out movies of mass murderers killing people, like Natural Born Killers? Are they glorifying it?

What you're saying is true, but music is about representing who you are, just like art; where as acting is just that, acting a role that is not you.

Just to throw it out there, the difference is that rap is taken a little more seriously to the point where listeners expect authenticity... not necessarily that you need life to imitate art (as that is not a good thing), but that you should've at least been around that kind of a lifestyle if you're rapping about it, otherwise you're being a poser. While the music represents art, the difference is that in movies, you are playing a role that you are asked to portray, while in rap, you're supposed to be playing yourself, more or less.

And that's why I really hate Baby and Lil Wayne. I'm not a big fan of them claiming to be Bloods. But they know how to make hits though.
