Looks like a new 300 without all the racist/homoerotic overtones and more yelling.
Cash Money Records’ CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams may own the most expensive car ever bought in the history of Hip-Hop, if his tweets are to be considered accurate.
The rap mogul, who has an estimated net worth of over $100 million dollars, is known for his love of expensive cars.
