50 Cent displayed his latest extravagant purchase, a custom Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé while cruising around New York City on Tuesday. The 41-year-old rapper – who had previously cited debts of $36 million and assets of less than $20 million in 2015 – beamed as he slowly drove his luxury vehicle which ranges from a base price $460,000 to $588,000, according to Guide Auto Web.
The In Da Club rapper – who burst onto the music scene in 2003 with his debut album Get Rich or Die Tryin’ – flaunted his enviable car with custom oil slick-inspired paintwork around the city, while sporting an eye-catching red baseball cap and black tee.
His striking new ride – which is inspired by 1930s yacht design – boasts cream leather interior with bespoke wood veneer and contrasting RR monograms on the headrests.
On the exterior contrasting the iridescent-coloured body, matte silver paint was applied to hood, windshield and grille surround, which added to the other custom work would cost at least another $100,000.
To order the car with bespoke interior changes reportedly costs $3400 alone while costs can quickly add up with seven-spoke 21-inch wheels at $9875.
His extravagant display in the Big Apple comes six months after a hearing in Hartford, Connecticut in February when Judge Ann Nevins discharged his bankruptcy case after he paid back more than $22 million. The rapper, whose real name is Curtis James Jackson III, filed for bankruptcy in 2015, citing debts of $36 million and assets of less than $20 million.
Judge Nevins approved a plan in July last year for the Power actor to pay back about $23 million to creditors. The music star’s lawyers said he paid off the five-year plan early with $8.7 million of his own money and $13.65 million he received in a recent settlement of a legal malpractice lawsuit against other attorneys.
