According to Allhiphop.com, Baby “Birdman” Williams has yet to purchase the $8,000,000 Maybach Exelero that he claimed he was buying some time ago. A representative for the European entrepreneur who owns the car told magazine MotorAuthority that Birdman has yet to pay for the pricey vehicle.
Why make such a claim and back down? Here are five reasons we think he’s waiting on the purchase.
5) Feeling The Heat
Baby bet some lucky person $2 million that the Miami Heat would defeat the Dallas Mavericks in this year’s NBA Finals. Dirk Nowitzki and company cleaned house on the “Heatles” putting Birdman in the hole for two times a Milli. We imagine he is paying that debt before he purchases an 8 million dollar car.
4) Sloppy Seconds
Baby caught up on his DVR’d recordings of “Rap City” from 2005 and realized that Jay-Z already flaunted the car in his video for “Lost Ones.” Even if he paints it red he’ll never get over Jigga man popping the car’s cherry.
3) Law & Order
Baby has a history of lawsuits going back to 2003. Whether it’s an unpaid jewelry bill, royalties over his Lugz shoes, or producers lining up for back royalties on Tha Carter III, Birdman stays “lawyered up” and that can’t be cheap.
2) Hedging Bets
Baby is planning to bet $10 million on the dream fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao. Depending on how he makes out he’ll be able to buy two Exeleros (even though there is only one in exsitence) with his winnings.
1) “Otis” Envy
After seeing what Jay-Z and Kanye West did to that Maybach in the video for “Otis,” buying a regular old car just seems so 2010. Given that NASA just decommissioned the Space Shuttle program, expect Baby to put in his bid to purchase Atlantis, Endeavor or Discovery with his first Billion.
