The Insanely Expensive Life of Birdman
In 2017, Forbes listed rapper Birdman at having a net worth of 110 Million Dollars. That seems like enough money for a lifetime for any of us but Birdman hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down on his spending anytime soon. Here’s The Insanely Expensive Life Of Birdman. Let’s see what he’s spent his money on.
#5 - His Maybach Exelero
Although we didn’t think that Birdman’s car collection could get any more grand or higher in value, he goes out and purchases a Maybach Exelero in 2011. The stunning car pictured here was uploaded to his social media account saying that he was going to paint it red when it arrived. This impressive beast can go from 0 to 60mph in just 4.4 seconds and its top speed is 218! How much did he pay for this incredible vehicle? $8 million dollars. That’s a lot of dough for a car!
#4 - Mega Mansions For Music Videos
The fortress pictured below is a real place and not a concept drawing of an epic palace. You can, in theory, actually buy it too, if you have a little over $10 million to spare. This insane three-story home has just about everything you could imagine to find in a mega mansion of this proportion. It was designed and built by Miami architect Charles Sieger and you might recognize it because Birdman rented it out to film his music video, “Fire Flame.” This gorgeous fortress houses eight bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a six car garage, multiple swimming pools, and the entire thing is equipped with private elevators. Although he can certainly afford it, Birdman only rented this massive complex which is a bill that would probably give us a heart attack. For him, it’s just another crazy day in the insanely expensive life of Birdman.
#3 - His Clothing Line - Respek
It would definitely take a person like Birdman to turn a horribly embarrassing situation into another source of profit. In April of 2016, the famous rapper was very rude and stormed out during a hip-hop radio show called The Breakfast Club. During the live interview, he cussed at the hosts and yelled things like “put some respek on my name.” After a few viral videos were made of the toddler like tangent, like he looks in this picture taken from the interview, Birdman came back to publicly apologize. He later went on to launch a merchandise line called “Respek” which features catchphrases from the interview so you can wear his words now and pay him for it. Like the hat in this picture. Respek the hustle, right?
#2 - Bronald Oil and Gas, LLC
Only an uber rich mogul would even dream of starting an oil company, and Birdman seemingly fit the bill. It’s pretty obvious that some of the richest people in the world own a lot of land that produces oil, and since oil is clearly making people rich, a serial entrepreneur like Birdman couldn’t let a cash cow like that go unmilked. In the early months of 2010, Birdman and his brother, pictured here, joined forces once again to create a company called Bronald Oil and Gas, LLC. The company name came from a combination of the two brother’s first names, Bryan, and Ronald. Over the next few months, the only evidence of this “business” was a website and a pump jack tattoo freshly inked on the side of Birdman’s head. In February of 2010, Birdman had even told Ozone magazine that he had been in the oil business already for the past several years. Not long after the addition of the skull tattoo, rumor started to spread that it wasn’t going so well for Bronald Oil and Gas, LLC. Even though it seemingly failed after a reveal from Bloomberg, it is a bold move that could only have been pulled off by a person with no fear of spending money.
#1 - A Gift For His Girlfriend
As far as we know, Birdman is still dating the beautiful Toni Braxton and by now, we’ve seen just how much he cares about her. In 2016, he made sure she knew his feelings when he bought her the $250,000 Bentley Bentayga SUV pictured here. It wasn’t because of a birthday or an anniversary, and it certainly wasn’t a holiday. He just bought her a 2017 SUV because he FELT LIKE IT. Are you kidding us? We’d be totally thrilled to be surprised with a much cheaper car, on a holiday. To a normal person, a car is a long time investment whereas to rich people like Birdman, they’re as easy to buy as a box of crackers. It must be nice.
