Jacques Berman Webster II, aka Travis Scott aka La Flame aka Cactus Jack, is such a popular rapper and producer that we are not here to tell you who he is. The rapper, fresh from a collaboration with McDonalds that is still debating, now reached the Olympus of the rap scene, he has been able to prove himself intelligent and determined, as well as talented.
Three factors that have contributed in equal parts to the success of La Flame, as surprising as taken for granted, after the release of “Astroworld”, the umpteenth proof that has definitely consecrated the artist.
To him we must surely give the merit of being one of the few who has succeeded, together with the g.o.a.t Drake and Kanye, to create his own ecosystem of values. An explosive mix of lifestyle, music, performance and street culture of great impact and immediacy, which has captured the attention and followers of hordes of followers.
28 years old last May, celebrated in a way that is very much in keeping with the character he created, giving himself a black Bugatti Chiron worth (apparently) $3 million. Let’s open a small parenthesis: the heir to the Bugatti Veyron can count on the power of 1,500hp, does from 0 to 100km/h in less than 2.5 seconds and can reach 420km/h. Closed parenthesis.
This new entry made us think of the other cars in Scott’s garage, which, as you would expect from an artist worth 58 million dollars, is populated with vehicles that have very little to do with sobriety.
For example, his very rare $1.4 million (1/99) G-Wagon Maybach is another hymn to humility. Those lucky enough to climb on it (not us) say it has a massage system built into the seats and silver goblets.
Scott’s Lambo Aventador, customized by West Coast Customs, has been finished with a matt brown chocolate bar effect paint, only with a V12 instead of sugar. Oh, the guy also has a Range Rover in the same color. So sweet!
La Flame’s Ferrari 488, a 670 horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine, is literally ‘flaming’ in its burnt orange livery.

What do you think of La Flame’s insane car collection?
