Back in 2006, liquor company Cristal shot themselves in the foot when Frederic Rouzaud, the managing director of Louis Roederer, the company that produces the expensive champagne, publicly said he didn’t like the brand’s association with rappers and the “bling lifestyle.”
After that comment was made, rappers started boycotting the liquor, a ban lead by Jay-Z. The boycott eventually lead to a drop in sales for a drink that was once immensely popular in hip-hop circles.
The spokesperson said this:
“We appreciate the publicity. But more importantly, we hope Kanye has the opportunity to fully experience the exhilarating performance and technical innovations found in all Lamborghinis.”
You got to hand it to the dudes at Lamborghini — they weren’t going to Cristal themselves.
Since Lamborghini is cool with hip-hop shouting out their brand, here’s 15 cool pics of rappers and other hip-pop celebs stunting in a Lambo.
