Birdman has just completed the purchase of a brand new 2011 Maybach Exelero for $8 Million plus import taxes & fees. It is being shipped as we speak and will reach U.S soil within a week.

The German luxury car manufacturer created the one-off model as a modern interpretation of its legendary streamlined sportscar from the 1930s. There are various allusions to the historical predecessor, which was likewise based on a powerful Maybach automobile.

Ralph Lauren’s passion for style is certainly illustrious, but it may indeed be eclipsed by his passion for automobiles. The fashion magnate himself has one of the world’s most impressive car collections, a private grouping spanning nearly 100 years of automotive history featuring the most lust-worthy marques. A 1938 Bugatti, a 1958 Ferrari Testa Rossa and a 2010 Lamborghini Murielago highlight his private stock, rounding out a collection of automobiles that rivals some of the world’s best. Lauren’s garage is a museum of automotive history, an archive of performance machines that represent the finest achievements in motorsport. Want to look deeper?

The Teflon Don, Rick Ross, endorses only the freshest of kicks and just recently, he has given Reebok’s Kamikaze IIIs a heavyweight thumbs up. On June 6th, 2011 a track hit the internet entitled “Reebok Back” in which the Maybach Monster promoted the new shoes and urged sneaker junkies to purchase a pair.
The song, sampling the “Tupac’s Back” beat, is a little over three minutes long and features Meek Mill and super-producer Swizz Beatz. The bearded beat buster raps on the hook, “Reebok back/ that’s all they really screamin’ is that Reebok back/ bought the black and the white/ the highs and the lows/ know this is Swizz Beatz edition/ cause them b*tches, they glow/ I mean look at them laces/ only money I’m chasin’/ yeah, they might call them classics/ but for a baller that’s basic/ they screamin’ Reebok back”

However, as entertaining as the song is, the real interesting part about this story is the fact that the shoes were designed by Swizz Beatz himself. For those who don’t know, Beatz is actually a clothing designer, painter, and a shoe designer in addition to being a music producer. A tweet from Beatz last year announced his business venture with Reebok in which he would design and help market a series of limited edition sneakers.
The new shoes were called Kamikaze’s and the original batch sold out in only ten minutes after hitting the market.
