Chris Brown, the R&B sensation, has accomplished much in a short amount of time. At the tender age of 19, he already has a string of hits including radio juggernauts “Kiss Kiss” and “With You”. Brown’s successes are not limited to only soulful croonings. He recently forayed into the world of acting– guest starring in episodes of the O.C.

Unfortunately, Brown’s fame has been overshadowed by a recent domestic violence incident when he was arrested for allegedly beating his girlfriend Rihanna. He was unavailable to perform at the Grammys, and now his future seems uncertain. Pictures of Rihanna emerged showing the extent of the damage, and fueling anger toward Brown’s actions.

Now onto what matters–the cars…..

Brown was known to have a Lamborghini Gallardo Coupe– an awesome ride fit for a celebrity who feels he has to impress people further. Yet despite this apparent ownership, it was Brown’s rented Lambo that was taken by police and may be used to build evidence against him. This sad vehicle is wasting away in a police impound lot awaiting its day in court. Now that’s the real crime…

Snoop Dogg has long been a fixture in rap music, rising in fame alongside stalwarts Dr. Dre, Tupac Shakur and others. He helped to pioneer gangsta rap which was enormously popular from the mid nineties to the present day. His westcoast g-funk style set Snoop apart and hits such as “Who am I?” and “Gin and Juice” received generous airplay.

Now I’m guessing Snoop owns several vehicles, surely pimped out and with shiny rims. However, this video appeared on the net showing the rapper squeezing into a minuscule smart — not exactly a car you’d associate with a lavish lifestyle. He attempts to fit into the vehicle alongside a beefy gentleman who appears to be the reincarnation of the Notorious B.I.G.

A good laugh was had by all and Snoop will surely stagger off unharmed to blaze up some sticky icky!

The rise and fall of grunge defined the US music scene of the early 90’s. Alice in Chains, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden and others let loose a torrent of angsty hits upon the apathetic youth–songs which are forever tied to the spirit of that age.

Out of grunge’s ashes rose a loosely defined genre known as post-grunge, which melded grungy residuals with a more commercial appeal. The poster-band of this movement was Bush, lead by vocalist Gavin Rossdale.

Rossdale and Co. were a huge success in the US, and the singer’s scratchy vocals could be heard in such hits as “Machinehead”, “The Chemicals Between Us”, and “Swallowed”. Rossdale’s post-Bush public life has been dominated by his marriage to No Doubt songstress Gwen Stefani and the pair’s two children. With a growning family, it is not surprising that Rossdale opts for an R-Class Mercedes Wagon.

Curtis Jackson AKA 50 Cent is likely the most popular rapper in the US today.

He started out in the ghettos of New York as a drug dealer, but quickly gained stardom after signing on to Shady Records and becoming a protege of Eminem and hip hop stalwart Dr. Dre.

After stackin’ up the riches, deckin’ himself in jewels, tastin’ the hottest ho’s and smokin’ the finest green, 50 turned to his next passion: a unique Rolls Royce Phantom.

The Phantom is well known in the millionaire’s club as a ride that provides style, elegance and a snooty attitude of disdain toward lesser vehicles. Fiddy’s Rolls boasts 450+ horsepower and a price tag of almost $350,000! But it is his plan of turning the car into a convertible that will really turn heads. As he states on topspeed:

“I don’t care if it messes up the electrical system. The roof is gonna be gone. I want something more sporty. I’m not an old man.”

Right on Fiddy!
