Killer Mike and Maxo Kream are among the many members of the Hip Hop community who are commending a young rapper’s financial abstinence.
On Tuesday (January 23), Florida native Liljitm3n shared a series of Instagram Stories in which he brandished his latest purchase: a Honda Accord. Contrary to a lot of his peers, he seems to have held on to a large portion of his earnings instead of spending it on a more expensive car.
“MY FIRST CAR FRESH OFF DA LOT BRAND NEW BOUGHT WITH MY OWN MONEY,” the 21-year-old wrote. “No more asking for rides im rich I got enough money to buy A BENZ I WANTED A HONDA ACCORD [middle-finger emoji, snake emoji, gorilla emoji].”
“Brilliant!” Killer Mike wrote in the comments section of a Say Cheese TV post about the humble flex, while Maxo Kream added: “I fucc wit this lil nicca.”
Quality Control Music CEO Pierre “P” Thomas and Yella Beezy also applauded the move in the replies for its long-term practicality.
On the flipside, Fat Joe recently dropped an astronomical amount of money on a custom-built Rolls Royce Cullinan after spotting a similar version in Dubai.
Last year, the “All the Way Up” rapper forked out $750,000 for the spacious luxury vehicle, reportedly spending $100,000 on the car’s exterior frame, which took over a month to construct.
Will Castro of Unique Whips: Special Editions was the mastermind behind the purchase. According to TMZ, he is also responsible for building two other Rolls Royces for the New York Rapper, including an orange and black one the year prior.
In 2021, the TV personality also helped restore LL COOL J’s 1986 Audi 5000 from the cover of 1987’s Bigger and Deffer before the Hip Hip legend donated it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The vehicle was one of the first lavish purchases the rapper made after signing a record deal with Def Jam Recording and it was stored at his grandmother’s home for three decades before finally being moved to Cleveland, Ohio.
It underwent extensive repairs — new bodywork, fresh paint job, installation of a custom two-tone black leather interior with red piping, new stereo system with a Blaupunkt cassette deck, amplifiers, subwoofers, red lighting, full engine rebuild and new OG BBS wheels.
Overall, the Uncle L dropped approximately $35,000 on the car.
