Nothing says LOVE more than seeing a man spending quality time with his baby. Not the two-legged kind -- the 4-legged kind that sits on dubs. On average, ballers spend more time and money on their rides than they do on any other prized possession.

While perusing the Internets this weekend looking for wheels to spruce up my Jetta, I came across a gallery of celebrities posing with their favorite rides outfitted by rim specialists, Lexani. None of the rims pictured cost less than $2,000.

Extravagant over expenditures notwithstanding, even I have to admit these ballers look sexy alongside their whips. I realize I haven't put up a Morning Wood post in a minute, and some of you are getting antsy to see one. So hopefully this post will suffice.

  • Divinebrown

    Can we get a post of these same folks and their bank statements?

    Money in the bank, dollar signs and a secure future is a turn on to me! NOT THIS...

  • http://myspace.com/dannyblaq dblaq

    I am coming out with a magazine that is similar to "Forbes" but in order to be in it. You will have to certify that you are a "Baller" meaning I need certified bank statements in your name, showing your true value and assets. I would be surprised that more than 10% of these so called ballers have even more than 200K liquid in their accounts

    I would put money on it that my magazine would be 1 page and is to advertise advertisement

  • Divinebrown

    Break it down dblaq....

    Key phrase being "liquid assets"...

  • iyonah

    BALLERS or not ... I love RIMS ...

    ((I hear you though Dblaq & Divine))

    @ post. I'm not impressed by men & their cars. I'm not impressed by anything that can take my mans attention off me. I feel sorry for any women who has a man addicted to video games.

  • ontaya brooks

  • iyonah

    Probably @ least 1/2 because most of the people mentioned are not on anyone's radar. Post is still good though ... I must be the only one that actually likes the RIMS ....

    I don't care about cars really ... couldn't tell yoiu the name of 1/2 of these, but the RIMS are pppppppppprrrrrrrrreeettttttyyyyyy!

  • Shauny

    Nice rims. Damn, DJ Quik! His first CD is still da bomb to me.

  • PAHairston

    Hello All. It's amazing how we black folks tend to find so much comfort in material things. I was born in a small town in VA and whenever I go back to visit, all the younguns are driving around in cars with expensive rims. (Saturns, Kias, Colts, Corollas, VWs) Mind you, they don't own a house, many haven't even finished high school, yet they invest thousands of dollars in rims just to impress. To me, this is sheer foolishness not to mention a waste of money. (Don't mean to preach, just speaking my peace.) One last note. One of my friends asked her white boyfriend if his mother ever taught him how to dress. He told her no, that she taught him how to save money and how to get a good education. I'd say this is damn good advice. Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

  • Divinebrown

    Speaking of morning wood....

    did ya'll see Lisa Bonet's baby daddy, Jason Momoa, on the Game? MMMMmmmmmmmmmmm, he's been hittin the gym. And looking good to me!!!! Pure Pisces said he moderately resembled Cro Magnon man....or had some pre-historic cave dweller features. (she needs to get her cataract surgery)

  • PAHairston

    One last thing. I know the above piece does not apply to all black folks, just about 70-80% of us. Peaceeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

  • Shauny

    DB which one is her baby daddy? I hope it's not Kelly's boyfriend. Is it?

  • Divinebrown

    PAHairston....IMAGE IS AN INVESTMENT! People tend to forget that. My Grandfather said your image is a reflection of how you feel about yourself. If you look bad....people will think they can treat you that way!! Those are words I live by but I'm not breaking the bank to do it.

    Paw Paw used to break it down...God rest his soul!

  • Naima

    LMAO @
    While perusing the Internets this weekend looking for wheels to spruce up my Jetta.

    Everybody know Fabulous ain't got no money, he already been put on blast for wearing rented jewlery, not to mention his rap career never really blew up. He was basically nothing without the Lil Mo' hooks

  • Divinebrown

  • vigolady

    Sandra you finally got it right!!!!!!!!! Now all you have to do is stop hating on Beyonce and it will be great!!!

  • Shauny

    @DB, no I didn't. Maybe it's the dumb character he's playing that I couldn't get pass but I wasn't digging him.

  • kblkness29

    Is it me.... Or does Jadakiss & Ice Cube happen to have the same color car along with the same kind of blingin rims? I'm just sayin....

  • PAGESINADIARY

    i am so pass grown boys and there toys.

    next

  • Anna

    Just like they shared a photographer, I am sure they were hoping we would not notice they were posing with the same ride and bling. LOL.
    As the old saying goes "I have never seen a Uhaul following a hearsh to the cemetery". I am not saying you can't buy it because you can't take it with you but , how many with money now will end up in their well beyond "golden years" in a smelly public nursing home because they did not invest in themselves, but were so busy buying unnecessary things to impress the less impressed. How many will even have money for a funeral that are "ballin" now when (if they are blessed and )GOD takes them home with him?)

  • mjoylaw

    This looks so gay to me.

    Wasn't Xzibit put on blast recently for owing mad money in taxes and having his house in foreclosure??
