It’s a typical Miami afternoon in early autumn. The city’s honorary spokesperson poses next to a classic model of American muscle, a custom 1972 Chevrolet Caprice. He soaks in every ounce of inspiration from the scantily clad women and the hustlers flossing their latest gadgets to the groups of immigrants striving to make it in the land of opportunity.

Rapper Stack$ was perched on the edge of his Ferrari—shades and brim of his money-green cap blocking the glare of the sun. He sauntered by the McLaren, which he referred to as his own personal “Batmobile.” Each diamond on his necklace glinted in the shape of giant dollar reflecting off the water and the skyline. He is Stack$—as in stacks of money—heir to a family fortune and a music business legacy. But foremost, he’s a rapper with intentions to make it big.
