Kanye West has sold his tank for $500,000 to the Diesel Brothers.
The ‘Stronger’ hitmaker’s team first contacted the vehicle customization duo – friends David “Heavy D” Sparks and David “Diesel Dave” Kiley – a few years ago to get them to work on their trucks, but the timing never worked out, and then last October, reps for the 44-year-old rapper got back in touch to see if they wanted to buy the Ripshaw.
The couple jumped at the chance as the waiting list for one is about three years old, and traveled to Kanye’s ranch in Wyoming to pick it up.
However, there’s a problematic quirk with their new purchase – the DVD player is built into the dash and only plays a looping K-Pop music video, and Heavy D and Diesel Dave can’t figure out how to turn it off. without completely tearing off the device.
Heavy D declined to tell TMZ how much they paid for the tank, but said they got a good deal.
Kanye reportedly paid $500,000 for the vehicle, which featured in his ‘Closed on Sunday’ music video and GQ photo shoot in 2020.
Meanwhile, the ‘Diamonds From Sierra Leone’ hitmaker recently vowed to be the ‘best dad’ to his ex-wife Kim Kardashian’s four children West, North, eight, Saint, six, Chicago, four and Psalm, two , and doesn’t matter how it’s portrayed by the SKIMS founder and her family, as long as they keep their brood of things.
He said: “I’m always going to be the best dad.
“They can go on ‘SNL’ and crack jokes. They can crack media jokes. They can plant stories about who I’m dating. They can block offers or do anything like that. things, but I’ll tell you directly: don’t play with my kids.
“Who you work for – who you think family works for – I’m telling you right now, don’t mess with my kids… It’s gonna be all legal baby.”
