Why would you say that? He is a car nut just like the rest of us.
Maybe because he does not go to work in a suit on Wall st and talk with a squeaky voice and drinks camermile tea with a raised little finger Talking about stocks and shares and how to shaft the little man bellow him
agreed and I'm with Joe on this one, I was thinking of typing something similar, but joe beat me to it probably in a more eloquent way...
Haha just saw this thread now. I didn't believe it after looking at the thread title and then I saw the link and after watching the first couple of minutes I thought it might be true. I recognised the collection immediately, the exact one from all of Jason's pictures. OK, anyone who see's Cribs will believe that they are his, but come on, that's really not cool.
WTF? "Now anyone that tells me they have a Ferrari F50, I can say me too" ....emm, no 50, you can't.
I really can't believe with all the money this guy has he would lie about owning all these cars. Makes me wonder if the hat's and shoes are really his too
BTW, I'm not being a hater or anything, I'm a big fan of hip-hop/rap music. I liked 50's first album but only a handfull of his songs that he's released since.
Jason, I agree with you 100%. Who cares what he does to get his money? He has a passion for cars just like everyone on this site. He probably would also take really good care of them aswell so no need to bash him over his profession.
the car's are NOT 50 Cents ones
Great lets revel in the fact that 50c is selling his multi million dollar house I would not mind being as hard up as that fellow
MTV is such **** . It should be banned for turning the youth into idiots.
+1 Horrible TV
Yeah I've read the replies also bud
thank's guy for the thread. very educational
^ No problem "guy"
Sorry if I got your panties in a bunch over posting a thread about some celebrity who we thought owned a F40, F50, Enzo. I am a big car nut and thought others would enjoy seeing such a collection.
50 Cent seemed like such a decent car nut, too bad he has to lie about his cars.
he should at the very least say that they are not his, i remember reading an article about Pharrell Williams and in the article they said he couldn't fly out his black enzo but the red one was filling in for it
Sad world where crap music makes the really big money.
sorry to disappoint you but 50 cent does not own ANY ferrari. he had a lambo but sold it i think and i heard he doesnt kno how to drive stick. dont believe everything u see on tv folks. esp mtv cribs. i know he has money but even people with money lie about the things they have.
I was expecting to see the chromed Lambo roadster ...
also the Saleen S7 & Maserati MC12 which appeared on some of his videos ...
are they rental too?
* I agree ... it's hard to relate a rapper and a classic car such as F40 which requires certain skill to drive it.
P.S. So... any Enzo owner is likely to rent his car ?
is that another way of making a profit out of their investment
Yeah I suppose that could read a little harsh. I should have thrown in a wink or something
I don't see why everyone is so surprised. Since when is a reality TV show actually real? If you have ever talked to someone that has been on any reality show or talk show, the whole thing is usually scripted--so why should MTV be any different? They are in the business of making money and more people are going to watch if 50 is driving a Ferrari as opposed to a Chrysler 300 regardless of who owns it. It's probably pretty smart on MTV's part considering who their target viewing audience is. I would be more willing to bet that this was the show producer's idea ("make sure you get a lot of really cool cars in the driveway and expensive drinks in the fridge") rather than 50's. Personally, if it was me, I would refuse to lie about what I owned but I guess others will take the bait if it will somehow potentially sell more records and make them more money!
That's all well and good if MTV is trying to make the money and get the ratings, but don't try and pass off someone elses collection as your own. I don't know if you saw the episode with I think it was Mark Antony, but he had a vehicle in his driveway that he said he was test driving and would be purchasing it. It all makes for great TV, but someone else took the time and money to put togther such a beautiful collection and should be recognized for it.
50 has the money so he should have no problem finding those vehicles. When he sits in the F50, if you know anything about body language, it is like he is sitting in the vehicle for the first time and is surprised when he sees that the F50 does not have a radio in it. The Enzo also has a number in the upper corner of the window from the parade from the Hartford Concorso.
Well if those are not his cars (anything's possible) then forget anything I said!
I will defer to Jason on this one because he has first-hand knowlege of the cars in question we think, BUT a set of Supercars involving a yellow Enzo from the Connecticut area was offered to me in March of 2007. I was not direct with the principal and thus it never went anywhere.
Well I guess the only thing we can draw from this is confirmation at last that in showbusiness, they LIE on their resumes! LOL.
Hey Joe just curious what you mean by you were not "dierct with your principal?" Also, what were you offered for the supercar set? Just wondering what a great collection like that goes for.
There is one genuine Supercar set currently available as of early last week for $3.1 mil now and it includes the GTO.
By "not direct with my principal" simply means wasnt talking to the man whose name was on the pink slips - my preferred way of acting as agent.
I see. I don't know, maybe I'm crazy but for a supercar set I think 3.1 mil is a reasonable price. I just have to find the money now. Haha
