Chris Brown owns a black Lamborghini worth $500K. Not a big surprise, right? He is rich after all. What is a surprise is that he pulled his Lambo into a garage for a custom paint job.
No, he did not have the black Lamborghini painted a different color. Instead he paid an artist, known only as Huero, to paint the lyrics to Tupac’s song “Lord Knows” on it. It took the artist 16 hours to paint the white lettering on the car, reports TMZ.
The lyric’s to Tupac’s “Lord Knows” are painted on the Lamborghini’s hood and roof. Brown made sure that Huero left out all of the f-words and n-words to keep it street friendly.
This is not the first time that Brown has customized a Lamborghini. In the past, he had one painted multi-colored to match the Hot Wheels version.
According to Mstars News, when the project was complete Brown posted the final product on Instagram, captioning it with, “@tattoo_huero just hooked my lambo up wit 2pac lyrics! #illsh*t. [sic]”
Back in 2007, Brown said it was his goal to be the R&B Tupac.
“I’m trying to be the R&B Tupac. I’m trying to make as many records as I can so when I’m out of this world, y’all can still have music from me nobody has heard yet,” Brown said.
Earlier this year, record producer, song writer and rapper Jermaine Dupree told Missinfo TV that he believed Brown would be bigger than Tupac.
“He’s young; he’s going to make mistakes. I think people started realizing that … when everybody’s young they make mistakes. People were looking at him like he was grown,” Dupree said.
Dupree added that he believed Brown would at least meet Tupac in popularity and even possibly surpass him.
“He’s a star, though. I told people when he came out of jail; he’s going to be Tupac. He’s an R&B singer. An R&B singer’s music is supposed to go farther than Tupac famous than Tupac. I mean, it is what it is. He’s a star, and I can’t front on it,” Dupree added.
In an interview with Rap-Up, Brown talked about how it felt being compared to Tupac.
“I just identify with a young black male who deal with trials and tribulations and can express his art through his poetry. I’m passionate so I can identify with that. Everything I do, I wear on my sleeve,” Brown said.
