Even before revealing his paranoia surrounding Tesla, when it comes to cars in general, Rick Ross (real name: William Leonard Roberts II) has always been a man of contradictions.

Despite not having his driver’s license until a year ago, the CEO/rapper of Maybach Music fame had already accrued a wildly impressive 100-vehicle collection.

And despite reportedly owning a Tesla Model 3, which the man has even posed next to for the ‘gram, Ricky Rozay claims you’ll never catch him behind the wheel for one hilarious reason.

The Hilarious Reason Why Rick Ross Refuses To Drive A Tesla

In a video clip posted by All Urban Central, Ross explained his logic – or rather, non-logic – behind what can be characterised as a bizarre (although not entirely unfounded) conspiracy theory.

“I’ve never ridden in a Tesla. Never… And the reason being, I’ve always had it in the back of my mind, the government could tap into the brain of the car,” started Rick Ross.

Ross then played out a scenario wherein a police officer is searching for his whereabouts, typing/”hacking” with an imaginary keyboard, and forcing his hypothetical Tesla into rerouting itself towards the relevant authorities.

“What you think, it can’t? That bitch self-driving!” Rick Ross responded when challenged by an unseen party offscreen.

“They got pieces bringing you pieces, robot cars, tacos… so if you get in that motherfucker it’s gonna lock the door and take you where it wanna go… You think you finna smoke a blunt, that bitch will suck it out.”
