For anyone who with a celebrity status paycheck, a budget-stretching luxury car is usually among the first things to buy.  So, in the world of hip hop, with all this money floating around, what do you buy?

Birdman (net worth: $100 million) has an extensive car collection.  He recently added a luxury Maybach Exelero, rumored to cost $8 million, to his fleet of cars.  Claiming he “had to have it”, it comes equipped with a twin-turbo V12 engine that can travel at speeds over 217 mph.  The vehicle will have good company as Birdman also has a $2.1 million Bugatti Veyron and a $1.5 million 2011 Maybach 62S Drop-Top Landaulet.

50 Cent (net worth: $100 million) is one of the greatest hustlers/businessmen of the hip hop world.  His reward comes in the form of a custom-painted Lamborghini Murcielago, Rolls Royce Ghost, and Ferrari F430

Dr. Dre (net worth: $125 million) likes to keep a low profile, but rumored cars in his garage include a black Ferrari and Bentley

You’ve probably already seen the car Jay-Z (net worth: $450 million) is pushing.  Featured in his video, “Lost One”, the $8 million Mayback Exelero can reach up to 218 mph.  Not to mention his sexy wife bought him a Bugatti Veyron for his birthday last year. 

When you’re on top of the hip hop game like Diddy (net worth: $475 million), you don’t just make news with your car, you make headlines by buying your son a second $360,000 Maybach for his 17thbirthday! We wish our birthdays were as happy as Justin's.
