Calle 13 Rapper Destroys Own Maserati with a Baseball Bat Wealth Is Killing Hip Hop

3/6/2014 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Calle 13 rapper René Pérez Joglar is leading the charge against conspicuous consumption in the hip hop world -- he just beat his own Maserati to pieces and drove it off a cliff ... all to prove the point that money is killing music.

René pulled off the stunt for his new music video "Adentro" -- and if that wasn't cool enough ... baseball legend Willie Mays actually hands him the bat.

Rene tells us, "I bought the Maserati because I myself fell victim to the stereotypes. I thought that once I had a nice house and a nice car that meant I had made it in the entertainment industry."

He adds, "When I started using the car, it made me feel uncomfortable owning it ... because I realized that the car stood for everything that is wrong with society ... Material goods aren't what makes life worthwhile." Watch TMZ Sports on FS1 Get the new TMZ Sports app!
