Nicki Minaj Buys Lil Wayne a $70,000 T-Rex Car for His Birthday
The 'Starships' rapper presented Weezy with a 1,000 pound all-red Campagna T-Rex 14R cyclecar. According to TMZ, the exotic vehicle is a three-wheeled, motorcycle-car hybrid that can reach speeds up to 150 miles per hour. The trike usually retails around $50,000, but Minaj had it tricked out with extra goodies, which raised the price tag up to $70,000. She also added a special note to the back of the T-Rex, which read "Nicki Loves Tunechi."
Minaj had the extravagant gift wrapped in a black bow and delivered to Weezy at his star-studded 30th birthday shindig in Los Angeles. We are quite sure Wayne was floored when he saw the vehicle. It's an awesome-looking car and perfect for cruising in California.
Among the celebrities that own a Campagna T-Rex (aka Pavement Predator) include Jay Leno, Justin Bieber and pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek, who supports Wayne's passion of being a skateboarder. "He's getting better," he says of Weezy's skateboarding skills. “I mean, you couldn’t possibly start skating at 26 or 27, it’s going to take you some time to get good, that’s just the reality, but he is learning at a pretty remarkable rate, which we all love, because he will get so excited."
It looks like Wayne has a new toy to get excited with now.
