Ludacris wins title for least-flashy rapper’s ride
Rapper Ludacris ranks among the most successful musicians in this country, and various lists put the value of his business empire around $75 million. There's the Conjure Cognac line, Soul by Ludacris headphones and other investments, along with paydays from his movie and music career. Most rappers have used such wealth to build a garage of flashy cars; a few even go to great lengths to make sure people don't mistake their Lamborghini for just any old supercar.
Which makes Ludacris' choice of a daily driver — a 1993 Acura Legend with 244,000 miles — all the more notable.
As Complex notes, Ludacris has shown off his Legend repeatedly to his Instagram followers, and in a radio interview last week, the rapper said he drives the Acura more than any other car he owns — enough that he's had to replace the engine and interior. "This," he said, "is my favorite car to this day."
The Legend was a huge hit in its era, so much so that Acura switched to using just letters for model names because the Legend brand was becoming more popular than Acura. Ludacris says he started driving the Acura in his early days around Atlanta, and would write lyrics in the car while driving to shows around the South.
"That's where the grind started," he told the radio hosts. The Legend "keeps me humble, it keeps me grounded" — even when he driving up to his private jet.
