    I drove with him once, by accident, on the west side highway in NYC. He was in the chrome murcielago and I was in a Gallardo Spyder. I can't judge how he is on a track or anything, but he pulled some pretty nice moves in traffic while we were playing. It seemed like the guy could drive a little bit.

    BTW: I've heard from people who know that XZibit is actually a very good driver. Random thought.

    He's a private collector who is / was a business man who has a cool collection. Let's leave it at that? I'm sure he'll appear if he wants to make it public :)

    SC has an amazing collection! 288 GTO, F50, Enzo, 599, Ford GT, Daytona spider.... Jason has photos in his Hartford Concorso file. He is at the Hartford show every year with several of his cars. I agree, he will make himself known if he wants you to know.

    Did you also hear in "fiddy's" interview about the Pontiac, he says "oh yeah I got the r r r r roy too."" I think he meant Rolls Royce.

    Well, using the initials opens up the game to guessing, so, though I have no idea if he is a car nut, I'll throw the following name out (see below). Why someone with that collection would display it that way through MTV is actually rather humorous!

    The Car-Crazy Hedge Fund Managers of Greenwich
    Number of motor vehicles registered in Hartford, CT, population 124,387:
    Under 48,000

    Number registered in Greenwich, CT, population 61,972:
    About 66,000

    The Wealth Report at wsj.com called attention to the Hartford Courant article containing those fascinating data.

    How did Greenwich end up with more cars than people? Well, hedge fund tycoon Paul Tudor Jones II owns 15. Steve A. Cohen and his wife make do with 13.

    50 Cent was at SEMA representing Pontiac and the 50 Cent edition G8. He is a car guy, IMO. I think the cars he owns are, for the most part, very cool. He doesn't own the Ferrari's in that MTV Cribs episode though.

    He was a nice guy, and easy to work with. I'm not doubting his enthusiast side. I'm not hating. I just pointing out that those f-cars that he claims to be his, aren't.

    50 cent is sponsored by pontiac.. he doesnt know **** about them.. just found this:
    50 Cent's version of MTV Cribs aired recently and had music fans and Ferrari fans amazed at "his" collection of cars. However it's been exposed that the cars were actually loaned by a multi-millionaire businessman who is unamed but has one of the lergest collections of Ferraris on the east coast. The cars that 50 cent loaned for the episode of Cribs included an Enzo, F-40, F-50 and a superamerica. The revelations were aired out by super Ferrari fans on a messageboard titled www.ferrarichat.com

    The cars were easily exposed by identical collectors show number stickers that were left on whilst shooting the tv show.

    Well, he did know about the car he was representing. In fact, from what I understand, he decided to use the G8 in a music video well before GM even approached him.

    Mind if I ask where that came from? I'd love a link- very interested to see where this thread traveled to.

    Simple answer is no, he does not own any of the 4 Ferrari's shown. He may very well own the 2 cars behind him though.

    Personally, as a rapper, I'm not too thrilled by him. I like his song Ayo Tech., but that's due to J.T. But as an overall guy, he's pretty cool. He's sort of like Marilyn Manson (minus the creepiness), in which his career isn't very well liked by many, but as a general person, he's not some dumbass rapper. He's actually an overall nice guy to talk with.

    Bummer. While he could certainly afford them, I can't understand why someone would go to the trouble of passing someone else's cars off as his. I can't relate. I guess we can call him 25 Cents now.
