Everyone gets into rap for a different reason. Whether it’s trying to make a change, a passion for music, or trying to shake things up in the industry, everyone goes in with specific goals in mind.
For some rappers, the goal is to make as much money as possible, and when they do, it’s not particularly surprising that they flaunt it. Sometimes that means blowing big money on ridiculous things, but sometimes it means really kind — if incredibly exorbitant — gifts for the ones that they love.
Joey Bada$$ has a unique success story and has quickly become one of the biggest new rappers on the scene, which comes with way more dollar signs than are in his name. To show off his success, he decided to give back to the woman who made it all possible: his mother.
This exorbitant gift might make you feel bad for that card you gave your mother for her last birthday.
No matter how much hard work and energy you put into your rap career, it can’t pay off for everyone. Luckily, that’s not a problem for Joey Bada$$. His dedication has made him one of the most well-known new rappers in the industry in record time. After all of his hard work, he’s taking some time to enjoy the payoff. He’s also making sure that everyone he loves gets a little cut of his success!
He took to Instagram to show what his present for his mother was: a new 2018 Range Rover Sport. Longtime fans will remember that Joey has been promising that he would get his mother a new car since his career took off, so he just showed us all that he’s as much action as he is talk!
In the video, his mother walks into the garage mid-conversation. She stops short in the middle of a sentence, though, when she sees what’s parked in front of her. Everyone in the video starts to laugh at her reaction as a huge smile spreads across her face. Then, when she realizes what’s happening, she starts screaming and clapping. Then she breaks into the most classic happy mom dance that I’ve ever seen as everyone else continues to cheer.
Joey walks in and puts his arm around her as someone screams “Happy birthday!” Even the dogs seem to be excited, as they spin around and bark.
Even though Joey is wordless in the video, he made sure to express himself in the caption of his Instagram post and share what was on his mind. He writes, “Surprised my moms with a brand new 2018 Range Rover Sport for her bday that I promised I’d get her before you knew who I was….. This is who & what I do it all for….. “Won’t stop till I meet hova and my momma’s in a Rover” and even still, I can’t stop won’t stop! #FamilyFirst #PLAX.”
Joey is still reaping the benefits from his album All-Amerikkkan Bada$$, but fans will be happy to know that he has more music in the works. He announced that he’s working on a Pro Era album, and that in December his fans can get their hands on the posthumous project from Capital Steez. And who knows — maybe if his new projects do well, he’ll be able to get his mother another brand new car!
