Remember when a rapper trashed a Rolls Royce to promote his album?

This is painful to watch. Painful and frustrating. 

As a car person, it physically hurt me to see a car, any car, being deliberately destroyed for fun. 

But it’s worse when it’s a $330,000 Rolls-Royce. 

In October 2021, Grammy-award winning rapper Young Thug (Jeffery Lamar Williams) destroyed his brand-new Rolls-Royce Wraith with a baseball bat and spray paint to promote his album ‘Punk’. He was helped by producer and DJ Metro Boomin, and rapper Gunna.

They even made sure fans were on scene to watch the grim show and immortalise it with cameras.

As a publicity stunt, it obviously worked. Especially if you believe the notion that there’s no such thing as bad publicity. And yeah, it was their money and their car so they can do what they want with it.

But the video is truly uncomfortable to watch, and I’m curious to find out what Rolls-Royce thought of this.
