will.i.am’s Custom-Made Car Is Impounded
Rapper’s heavily modified DeLorean-based creation gets the hookup from L.A.’s finest
Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am’s new car company, IAMAUTO, was back in the news this weekend, once again for a less-than-positive reason.
According to multiple reports in celebrity blogs, Los Angeles police pulled the rapper over Thursday night in his DeLorean-based creation for lack of license plates. According to the reports, when the police asked for the car's documentation, the musician was without a suitable answer; as it turned out, not only did the car have no license plates, but it was not registered, nor did it have a VIN.
According to E! Online, the performer told the officers he was aware that the car wasn’t road-legal “but wanted to drive it.”
Ultimately, the musician was issued a citation and the car was hauled to the L.A. County impound, where it will remain until the musician can come up with the necessary paperwork to have it released.
Seriously---get with the program if you can afford such a nice car then you can afford the plates just get with the program!
And as a response to BMW640I why do you have to make this a race thing...what does him being black have to do with anything going on or anything he has achieved in his life. I am neither of the races you mentioned but truly stop pulling the race card you give your community a negative persona. Get over yourself! A person;s success is not measured by their race, color, gender, ethnicity, etc!
If you ever looked at an Black eye Peas video he does more then rap so you people who have no talent to talk about someone who is multi talented that can sing and rap vs someone who pushes desk paper i think you all should look in the mirror he is very smart because Obviously he is doing better then the rest of you with his money enough said
Stop tearing down people cause you're not on there level hate is for losers
