Custom Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Car Spotted In Sam’s Club Parking Lot.
This car was spotted at a Sam’s Club in Nashville by Redditor kvnmahan. You’d think the awesomeness would end there, but it doesn’t: this car belongs to a white southern rapper calling himself LexTopDollar.
Check out this music video with what looks like the same car, only pimped out in a sweet Batman motiff. Oh, rappers.
If this were my TMNT car, the rims would totally look like either pizzas or manhole covers. Just sayin’.
A Little Bit On The Snoop Dogg Side: Snoop Dogg tells a heartwarming story about the time he was slipped a roofie at the Playboy mansion, fell down some stairs, got high, then made love to two favorable young ladies.

Not only is this video promoting the Sour Patch Kids candy, but it’s also promoting the upcoming World Gone Sour video game. Video game? Are you fucking kidding me right now?

Now excuse me while I go like this shit on Facebook and find out when the game drops.
And Now, a Rap Video Starring Chewbacca

Rapper Random aka Mega Ran just put out his Final Fantasy VII album and it’s actually pretty good. And if you need any further convincing, as GoldSlime.com points out:
“…I need some materia for weapon material, hijacked the Highwind and scratched off the serial…”
