When you're 23 and a rising rap star, the world of supercars greets you warmly. Just ask Young Money rapper Tyga, a.k.a. Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson, whose spent sizable amounts of his capital on his garage — including a gold-painted (not vinyl-wrapped) Audi R8 and a $376,000 Lamborghini Aventador, which was last seen this weekend on Tyga's Instagram in a snowy ditch after he crashed it.

Not even the all-wheel-drive Aventador can keep its nose unbent if its 691-hp V-12 gets tested in snowy conditions. There's not much else known about the wreck outside of Tyga's own comment "Just crashed my lambo. Thank God for the seatbelt." Given that the Aventador's frame is made from carbon fiber, it probably survived mostly unscathed, although the repair bill for any mechanical piece that met with the ground at speed will take several bills.

Tyga does have a few marks on his driving record; he was arrested in Las Vegas and spent a few hours in jail last January after a traffic stop where police found he was wanted in relation to four other traffic incidents, including reckless driving. There's no point to owning a car like the Aventador if it's never driven at speed — but lacking the skills and sensibility to drive a supercar safely can quickly ensure young money never has the chance to grow old.
