Exploring Kendrick Lamar’s Impressive Car Collection

Kendrick Lamar has been a gearhead ever since he was young.

Kendrick Lamar grew up in Compton, California, where he attended the early years of school and idolized becoming as successful as Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur. While his father was involved in gang activity and was under constant struggle at home, Lamar was a straight-A student who reflects fondly on the good memories of his childhood.

1992 Cadillac Seville ($34,975)


Kendrick Lamar prefers adding low-bodied vehicles to his collection, and the list starts with the 1992 Cadillac Seville. It is the first car purchased by the rapper after earning steady paychecks from his music. The car can equally merge into a speedway or highway and is the perfect combination between comfort and performance. According to Cars, it was named the 1992 Car Of The Year. The Seville is equipped with a 4.9-liter V8 that cranks out 203 HP. The car underwent several tweaks and changes for the 1992 iteration and rocked new moldings and a colored grille.

1964 Chevrolet Impala ($30,000)


A collector’s dream, Kendrick Lamar has another gem in his collection with the 1964 Impala. Lamar can be seen riding the classic car in Mike WiLL Made-It’s 2017 Perfect Pint music video featuring him and Rae Sremmurd. The Impala remains popular even today due to its softer and more-rounded design introduced in the 1964 iteration, as noted by HotCars. It reflects the low-rider culture of America from the 1950s and has a 409ci V8 engine that produces an output of 425 HP. The car’s popularity makes it an easily customizable automobile, as people own the Impala as a status symbol today.

1990 Cadillac Brougham ($27,950)


Another low-riding beauty on the list, the 1990 Cadillac Brougham, made a special cameo in Kendrick Lamar’s music video King Kunta released in 2015 from his album To Pimp A Butterfly. Falling under the Standard Of The World category, the 1990 Brougham is one of the last big-body designs created by Cadillac before the turn of the century. The car remains popular even today due to its 5.7-liter V8 engine, one of the best that General Motors has ever built, and offers a more formal look with the Premiere Vinyl roofing and a massive deck that gives it a sculpted design.

2018 Range Rover Sport ($75,800)

Initially introduced in 2006, this vehicle seamlessly blends off-road prowess with luxurious amenities. The Sport variant underwent a subtle yet significant design update, offering a choice between single and dual-speed configurations. According to Car and Driver, it boasts four powertrain options, starting with the base 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering 340 horsepower. With seating for five, this vehicle is the ideal choice for Lamar and his growing family.

Another car that made its way to the Kendrick Lamar song in United In Grief, the rapper owns the G-Wagon in a classy black shade. Often spotted riding the vehicle in California, Lamar was once stopped by the police after his new purchase had a missing license plate which has since been added. The 2018 model retains its signature design but has minor upgrades in its door handles. With a 2.1-inch increase in length, it is built with a 4.0-liter V8 that gives a power output of 416 HP and offers extra legroom in the rear passenger seats.

According to Motor Trend, the i8’s exterior design draws inspiration from the Vision Efficient Dynamics concept unveiled at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. Beneath the sleek exterior lies a potent 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine, generating 357 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. In EV mode, the i8 can cover approximately 15 miles solely on electric power and up to 330 miles on a combination of battery and gasoline power.
