Houston rap star Devin The Dude is pretty low-maintenance. Unfortunately for him, his vehicle of choice is the complete opposite. He drives a ’79 Cadillac Seville. Unlike many hip-hop artists, who care just as much about driving the hottest cars on the streets as they do about dropping the hottest lines on beats, Devin is different. He’s content to simply keep his ride on the road. Since copping the kitty he refers to as Pearly Mae in ’92, The Dude claims that he’s paid for her at least nine times in repair costs alone. Hopefully his latest Rap-A-Lot Records release, Waitin’ To Inhale—featuring Snoop Dogg, André 3000, Lil’ Wayne and Bun B—is received well enough to help D keep his money right. Pearly needs new shoes.
