Rapper Drake Buys Mercedes-Maybach Pullman Worth More Than $500,000
Placing third in this year’s Forbe’s Hip Hop Cash Kings list with an income of approximately $39.5 million, it comes as no surprise that rapper Drake can afford to buy any car he feels like, and he wants everyone to know it.
Drake shocked the music industry this week by releasing a new collaborative album with southern rapper Future, which according to Business Insider is expected to sell more than 500,000 units in its first week.
On the album’s last track, titled “30 for 30 Freestyle,” the 28-year-old Toronto rapper challenges rap fans and auto enthusiasts alike to get on his level when it comes to luxury automobiles.
“I just got the Mercedes Pullman, you [expletives] never heard of it, you gotta hit up Google,” Drake proclaims in the rap.
Luckily, Mercedes has done the work for us and tweeted a video of the ride.

At an astonishing length of 21.3 feet, the new Mercedes-Maybach Pullman is longer than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class by four feet, and is three feet longer than a standard Mercedes Maybach.
The Mercedes-Maybach Pullman comes equipped with a biturbo V12 motor good for 523 horsepower. The Pullman’s base model is sold for $566,922.
The interior of Drake’s new Pullman is covered in leather and also features a Burmester® High-End 3D Surround Sound System so Drake can listen to all of his hit records, which he allegedly may or may not have written all by himself.
You can hear Drake shout out Mercedes on his new album “What a Time To Be Alive.”

Sam is also a Dayton, Ohio native and doesn’t seem to mind that distinction as much anymore. His first car was a 1996 Ford Taurus he could barely fit in. Like many young folks, he seemed more concerned about the radio in his first car than actually doing the work to maintain an automobile, so sadly it’s no longer with us. See more articles by Samuel.
