From one-of-a-kind Patek Philippe watches to one-off Mercedes-Maybach builds, Drake and Virgil Abloh hold a special bond.
With an impressive collection that once featured a yellow Ferrari LaFerrari, Mercedes-Maybach G650 Landaulet, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan by Chrome Hearts, Canadian rapper Drake defines himself as a true car enthusiast that continues to upgrade his garage with new examples. Sharing a similar artistic vision with fashion icon and friend Virgil Abloh, Drake pays homage to his life and love for luxury cars by featuring the Mercedes-Benz Project MAYBACH in his most recent ‘Sticky’ music video. Showcasing itself as a luxury off-road concept, Project MAYBACH adapts to its outdoor environment while shooting camping scenes with the award-winning performer.
The inspiration behind Project Maybach was complete creative freedom, the great outdoors, and re-contextualizing a traditionally metropolitan brand within a distinctly off-road environment. Project MAYBACH channels Abloh’s passion to challenge the status quo and re-write the rulebook of aspirational design. The X-Factor nature of Project MAYBACH results not only from its breathtaking size (nearly 20 feet long) and characteristics. While Project MAYBACH was inspired by his creative efforts, the Mercedes-Benz teams thank Virgil Abloh for the inspiration to explore the power of cross-industry dialogue.
