Despite having a fantastic career in the music industry, Jean is looking to combine his two biggest passions, cars and music.

The musician had joined the team at Apex motors to design a £295,519 electric car called Attucks Apex APO.

Last weekend the rapper unveiled the high-end EV, which Jean refers to as "the lightest-ever electric supercar."
