Even if you’re not a fan of Young Dolph’s music, his videos are still worth watching just to check out the extravagant and fully customized automobiles.

Dolph’s video for his song “Down South Hustlers” has earned more than 1 million views on YouTube since being uploaded on July 17th. Those views could be the result of the addictive beat used for the tune or it could be because people want to steal another glimpse of Dolph’s customized Cadillac ATS.

Judging from the fine mesh grille, Dolph’s ATS is either a 2013 or 2014 model, but what makes the vehicle so distinctive are the aftermarket spoke wheels he incorporated as part of his customized luxury sedan. The spoke wheels are popular in Texas, where they are also known as Texas Wire Wheels or “Swangas.” Each rim can cost more than $1,000 and that’s not counting the $200 Vogue tires that are typically wrapped around them.

The 2013 ATS was the first compact sedan produced by Cadillac in 20 years, and it was also the first vehicle to sport the redesigned Caddy logo. The 2013 Cadillac ATS came available with a 3.6-liter V6 engine good for 321 horsepower and 274 lb-ft of torque. This Cadillac also earned a five-star crash test rating from the National Highway Traffic Saftey Administration.

Dolph isn’t married solely to Cadillacs, however, as he was also spotted driving a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 in the video, which comes with a V12 engine capable of producing 700 horsepower. The 2015 Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 features a MSRP of more than $400,000.

The video for “Down South Hustlers” is definitely a tribute to Texas car culture and the 30 spoke rims that many Texans can’t seem to get enough of.

Young Dolph still hasn’t released an album on a major record label, so the up-and-coming rapper must be booking a lot of shows to be able to afford such stylish vehicles.
