YouTuber WhistlinDiesel slams TheStradman’s response to ‘childish’ drama

Following the purchase of his Audi R8, YouTuber WhistlinDiesel is now a self-confessed ‘car guy’ but it seems his dislike of the car community hasn’t lessened, as fellow YouTube TheStradman found out the hard way.

YouTuber ‘beef’ is nothing new, and WhistlinDiesel and TheStradman have a prior history of this, having traded blows over Instagram back in August.


While many thought that their brief ‘spat’ would be the end of the drama, WD was keen to re-ignite this drama on Instagram, having posted what some would deem a ‘childish’ reply to one of TheStradman’s posts.

Responding to a post asking his followers what color his Bugatti Veyron should be wrapped, WD replied to Stradman saying: “if you wrap your Bugatti grape purple like everything else I’m going to dig my eyes out with spoons.”

TheStradman was quick to block WhistlinDiesel for his comment about his Bugatti Veyron wrap.

Trying to start a flame war?

Since the pair have previously had issues, it seems that Stradman was in no rush to start any further beef, and simply blocked WhistlinDiesel’s account. Unfortunately for Strad, it seems that this wasn’t enough to solve the issue, and may have even made things worse.

With WD having over 700k Instagram followers, some of them took it upon themselves to ‘spam’ Stradman with copies of WD’s original comment on his posts. Whether they were looking to incite a ‘flame war’ or simply wind up Stradman is unclear, but he did respond to them.

Evidently riled by WD’s behavior, Stradman replied saying “I don’t need him hating on my posts to garner attention for himself.” With Strad having previously stated that WD “destroyed cars for views,” this isn’t the first time he has been called out for using controversial tactics to raise attention.


Despite trying to sell himself as a ‘car guy’ WhistlinDiesel seems intent on keeping ‘truck’ and ‘car’ guys at war with each other. In his post allegedly meant to be an apology to Stradman, he calls the car community “not as hardened as the truck community” since they were so quick to react to his words.

I can tell from the first couple of weeks here it’s going to be a long crazy ride in the car community since they’re probably not as hardened as the truck community ? This is going to take some time but in the end you’ll all be chill with it. I’m just the @alex.choi from hell. thestradman you seem like a super nice guy. @streetspeed717 is also a super nice guy and we had fake beef for months even though he has a piece of crap corvette. Hence why none of my posts are directed at you personally, just the @welchs color on every single car. In the end they’re just cars that will be scrapped someday, not people. Behind Instagram I’d be any of your friends in person. @life_of_palos plz take notes for next vid ?

“In the end, you’ll all be chill with it”

It also appears that WD has no plans to back down from being controversial or confrontational, calling himself “the Alex Choi from hell” and saying “this is going to take some time [getting used to WD in the car community] but in the end, you’ll all be chill with it.”

With many people including YouTuber Life of Palos calling out WD for his initial comment, we may not have heard the last of the WhistlinDiesel vs TheStradman drama.

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.

Drake Mansory Phantom

Drake’s custom Mansory Phantom set him back at least $700,000.

5. Drake’s Mansory Bushukan Phantom – $700,000+

Drake has an insane amount of cars, but one of his most recognizable is his custom Rolls-Royce Phantom.


Modified by Mansory, the Phantom features a one-off design incorporating a number of OVO elements, including a custom OVO gold owl hood ornament.

Travis Scott Landaulet

One of the most unusual cars in Travis’ collection is the Maybach G650 Landaulet, with only 99 made worldwide.

4. Travis Scott’s Maybach G650 Landaulet – $1 million

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 West McLaren SLR Stirling Moss
Kanye’s McLaren SLR Stirling Moss is one of only 75 in the world.

2. Kanye West’s McLaren SLR ‘Stirling Moss’ – $2 million

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.


Featuring an open two-seat cockpit, 641bhp, and a top speed of 220 mph, the SLR Stirling Moss is a serious performance car. It’s collectible, too, and could turn out to be a very good investment for Kanye in the long run.

JayZ Maybach Exelero
The Maybach Exelero is one of the most exclusive cars ever built.

1. Jay Z’s Maybach Exelero – $8 million

Jay-Z has a car collection that is worth more than most celebrities’ entire net worth. The crown of his collection is undoubtedly the ultra-rare, ultra-expensive Maybach Exelero.

One of only 12 known to exist, the Exelero is a 2.6 ton, ultra-luxurious performance coupe. Not only does it look incredible, but it also holds the world speed record for a luxury vehicle on street-legal tires.

Powered by a 700hp V12 engine, the Exerlero is capable of reaching a top speed well in excess of 200 mph.
