When I Was Broke This Was My Dream Car!!!

Nas is living the dream … exhibit A — finally landing the car he dreamed about when he was a kid.
The legendary rapper hit up Will Castro of “Unique Rides” in NYC and challenged him to find a 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190E and turn it into a masterpiece.
Will spent under $5k to buy the beater and his team spent another 8 weeks customizing it with, shall we say, Unique touches — a custom rag-top, leather piped interior seats, custom Nas wheels and a sick sound system. It’s unclear what the whip’s worth now but it’s gotta be a crap load more.
The episode airs Wednesday at 6 PM ET on Discovery.
So, why does this car mean so much to Nas? We’re told, to him, this Benz personified everything it meant to be rich … in car, culture, style, life and spirit.
Mission accomplished, Nas.
