After countless hours of surfing the net this week, we came across this entertaining 3 part video challenge between two young American rappers.
It all starts off in the first video (Video 1 Below) where 18 year old rapper Soulja Boy (Deandre Ramone Way) is showing off his brand new white Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder (100% stock). At the end of the video Soulja Boy calls out 21 year old Bow Wow (Shad Gregory Moss) to race his Lamborghini Murcielago for pink slips.
Bow Wow then answers back in video (Video 2 Below) by showing up in his orange Murcielago slammed on Asanti wheels rocking a full sound system and trashes Soulja Boy not only for his pronunciation but for bragging about his Gallardo, calling it a poor man’s Lambo!
Finally Soulja Boy answers back (Video 3 Below) calling out Bow Wow and claiming he is full of shit because he is rolling in a rented Lamborghini. He claims to have ‘figured out’ (very wrongly) that Bow Wow’s Lambo is rented.
UPDATE Feb 6 @ 4pm (EST): Just found another response (Video 4 Below) where BOW WOW starts trash talking Soulja Boy (who he now refers to as RAMONE as a dis) about how he can’t even come to the race unless he’s got a Murcielago. He also shows his ownership slip and then explains how he is a ‘Corporate Ni%%er’ and flashes his BLACK AMEX CARD. He goes on to say that he talked to the CEO of Lamborghini and is in talks with the Speedchannel to sponsor the race.
UPDATE Feb 6 @ 8pm (EST): Sean Kingston vs Bow Wow Lamborghini Race Video
UPDATE Feb 6 @ 10pm (EST): Just noticed that the original users who posted BOW WOW’s videos have since taken them off of YouTube! I just added them from other users who luckily ripped them from the originals!
UPDATE Feb 7 @ 8am (EST): Again the videos that I had replaced have been taken down, sourced more, but I now can’t find the Soulja Boy Part 3 Video where he accuses BOW WOW of having a rented Lamborghini and shows a website who also has their information completely wrong about BOW WOW’s Murcielago. Sourced new videos. This is becoming a major pain in my a$$ so I am going to DL the vids myself for safekeeping and re-posting 😛
Do you think these 2 guys are being immature, or is this some clever viral-type PR work? Comment below.
Correction: Soulja Boy says his car is a brand new 2010, yet it’s NOT a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4.
Note: Bow Wow says his car is $450K, but that is just embellishment – It doesn’t mean that’s what he paid, or that he doesn’t know what they cost. (btw, a new fully loaded LP640 roadster can easily top $400K USD MSRP.)
Correction: Soulja Boy shows a Prestige Rental website shot that shows an orange Lamborghini LP640 (see here) and incorrectly says it’s the same car. Bow Wow clearly has a Murcielago 6.2 coupe, which isn’t the same car!
NOTE: Bow Wow’s orange Murcielago isn’t rented. He bought it a while back from Lamborghini Miami. The referenced article is wrong and is full of errors. They say they know it’s rented because it has a Prestige plate on the front, and in Miami there’s Prestige Luxury Auto Rentals that rent Lamborghinis, and their website has a pic of an orange Murcielago that they rent out, however it is a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 (see here), clearly not the same car. To clarify Prestige is also known as Lamborghini of Miami, i.e. the largest Lamborghini dealership in the USA.
So we wouldn’t call Bow Wow a bullshitter. But Soulja Boy is clearly bullshitting, because first off there’s no 2010 Gallardo (yet), and his Gallardo isn’t even an 09, cause it’s NOT a Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4, furthermore he isn’t even able to distinguish a Murcielago 6.2 coupe from an LP640!
