Since his rap profession started in earnest, Drake has by no means shied away from exhibiting off his opulent life-style. The video for his latest single, “Laugh Now Cry Later,” is not any exception. The Canadian rapper might be seen taking pictures hoops with Kevin Durant, throwing the ball round with Odell Beckham Jr. and driving one of the vital insane Mercedes-Maybachs you’ll ever see.
Whereas Champagne Pappy’s style within the finer issues can typically elevate eyebrows, the brand new video, which was launched early Friday morning, exhibits that he is aware of a factor or two about vehicles. He’s not driving simply any previous Maybach; he in a the one-of-a-kind Imaginative and prescient Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet idea.
The dazzling convertible made its debut on the Pebble Seashore Concours d’Class again in 2017. Stretching 20-feet, the modern, open-top automobile options a chic Artwork Deco-inspired physique, completed in Nautical Blue Metallic with elegant chrome accents. Simply as head-turning is the spaceship-like inside, which options white nappa leather-based seats, ice blue accent lighting and a yacht-inspired flooring. And whereas the automobile’s design is noteworthy sufficient, the 750 hp, absolutely electrical drivetrain is nothing to sleep on both.
Like most ideas, the Imaginative and prescient Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet is extra present automobile than manufacturing automobile, however Drake does spend a while behind the wheel within the completely corny video. On the very starting of the clip, the previous Degrassi star might be seen driving as much as the Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, with a date who he then takes on a non-public purchasing spree. He additionally dances across the Cabriolet and its older sibling—a ruby pink Imaginative and prescient Mercedes-Maybach 6 Coupe—earlier than the video’s finish.
It’s unclear if the Drake owns the Maybach ideas or was simply loaned them for filming. Reps for the marque didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark from Robb Report, whereas a rep for Drake wrote, “We have no comment at this time.” But when they aren’t his, and Mercedes-Maybach ever seems like parting methods with the vehicles, we now have a sense the rapper will be capable of afford them.
