Rapper Young Thug wrecks a Rolls-Royce to promote his album.
Love it or hate it, but destroying a Rolls-Royce is a great tactic for people to talk about you non-stop.
This and other high-end cars are symbols of status and timelessness. The opulence is a fruit of their ever-lasting qualities, reached through dedicated metalwork and tailoring applied to leather interiors and exterior finishes that turn them into real masterpieces.
By destroying them, creatives might end up being criticized, of course, but we wouldn’t dare say that these performances are poor in meaning or concept.
Going full savage mode to challenge conformity requires plenty of boldness, which many artists have to spare.
Keep scrolling to remember some of the most iconic destruction is a form of creation moments we’ve had in music and pop culture.
