Supercar owner and YouTube personality Damon of DailyDrivenExotics is known for his vast collection of modified vehicles, but sometimes these incredible machines attract the wrong kind of attention, and this time the cops got involved.

Unfortunately living in a quiet, residential area with high-performance supercars is likely to annoy one or two of the local residents. It seems not everyone appreciates the sound of a high-strung V10 Lamborghini being cold-started next door to their house in the early hours of the morning.

This time Damon and his friends really riled up their neighbors though, as one local resident went as far as calling the cops on the DDE crew, apparently reporting them for street racing in the local area.

Tipped off by a text message

While at a gathering, Damon gets passed a text warning him that there’s a cop posted up outside the house who has been checking out the cars and seemingly inspecting them.

Thankfully there doesn’t seem to be any malicious intent or foul play here, as the police officer is very calm and upfront with Damon and the crew. He goes on to explain that an ‘elderly’ neighbor had complained about the crew street racing in the local area along with other ‘ongoing’ issues.

From what the DDE crew can figure out, it seems the resident is unhappy with the loud exhaust systems on the cars. They go on to explain to the officer that since the exhaust systems are so loud, many people think that the cars are traveling far quicker than they actually are.

“Would you like to hear them?”

Damon even offers to start the cars for the officer to “see what they sound like” but predictably the officer declines, stating he “knows what they sound like” – likely in an attempt to keep things quiet for the other neighbors in the small hours of the morning.

Thankfully it is all resolved amicably and the cop leaves cheerfully and without issuing any tickets, even going as far as fulfilling Damon’s request for “lights” when leaving so that he could get a thumbnail for his video!

Musicians have one of the most intensive lifestyles in the world, touring the globe to promote their work to millions of people. Thankfully, hard work brings rewards, which rappers often spend on incredible car collections.

Luxury items such as exotic cars are seen as a status symbol. They’re a fantastic way to not only ‘flex’ wealth, but also make a statement wherever they go.

Successful rappers such as Drake and Travis Scott love nothing more than showing off their success with ultra-expensive cars, but they’re far from the only ones. Below, we’ve rounded up five of the most expensive cars ever to be owned by rap artists for your enjoyment.

Travis Scott has one of the most incredible car collections of any rapper. Featuring Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Bugattis, one of the rarest (and most expensive) cars is his Maybach G650 Landaulet.

With only 99 built, the G650 Landaulet is based upon the Mercedes G Wagon. Featuring a custom extended body with convertible rear section, the G650 puts out over 600hp from its V12 engine.

3. Post Malone’s McLaren Senna XP – $1.7 million

Post Malone is known for his keen love of custom and exotic cars. With his fleet ranging from a custom 1992 Ford Explorer (which he named a song after) to Rolls-Royces, the jewel in this rapper’s collection is undoubtedly his McLaren Senna.

His Senna is no ordinary hypercar, however, with Post having one of the ultra-rare prototypes from McLaren themselves. Dubbed the Senna XP, Master of Monaco, this one-off prototype is worth significantly more than a standard McLaren Senna.

Kanye’s collection is an eclectic one, but the standout car has to be his McLaren SLR Stirling Moss. Based on the already legendary McLaren SLR, the ‘Stirling Moss’ edition pays tribute to the legendary racing driver of the same name.
