American rapper and billionaire Kanye West made some noise this February after being spotted driving across Chicago with his pals in massive black off-roaders and giving his Yeezy sneakers away to passersby. But does the musician really possess an entire fleet of these menacing cars?
Kanye West apparently has a whole “fleet” of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) produced by Russian manufacturer Sherp and he is keen on driving them on his Wyoming ranch, Business Insider reported.
According to Forbes estimates, the legendary musician and producers has around $3.8 million of his assets invested in various vehicles. It has now been suggested that a large part of this wealth could be taken up by a formidable park of Russian off-roaders, alongside Ford Raptor pickups and even a “luxury tank”.
The Sherp company produces quite hardcore ATVs that can sustain “extreme operational conditions”, as they are mainly used by geologists, rescue teams and apparently by extravagant fashion designers.
It is Sherp Pro version that has reportedly been so cherished by West, the vehicle that can overcome obstacles up to 1 meter high, including fallen trees and boulders, climb at 35 degrees slopes and even “get out of water onto the ice”.
The Jesus is King author already made an uproar with his stunning collection this February, when hopping in all-black ATVs and driving them around Chicago with his buddies as a part of promotion of his Yeezy sneakers, which were handed out to locals for free.
Different — Kanye West has secret Sherp SUVs driving around Chicago, dropping off pairs of his new Yeezy Quantum sneaker to kids for free around the Wicker Park, Grant Park and the West Loop neighborhoods.
