If your parents are Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, known for having paparazzi on their backs all the time, chances they'll to protect you by any means necessary -- and that's exactly what daddy Kanye is doing. 

Kanye dropped $2 million on two Dartz Prombron armored SUVs from Europe. The vehicles usually cost about $400,000 each, but Kanye has modified them for his daughter North West's protection, so the price skyrocketed to about $1 million each. One of the models in particular is able to withstand attacks from landmines and grenades. The other is a upgraded version of what the president rides around in. And if that wasn't enough, two full-time bodyguards have been employed to stay with the truck.

Kanye is requesting that Dartz put a rush on his order so wifey Kim K can have one before Yeezus begins his U.S. tour in October.

  • It's amazing how people are criticizing the guy for wanting to protect his family. With the ridiculous amount of hate Kim and Kanye get, there's no telling what someone would try to do to them or their child.
  • I would expect this from the president or the royal family. I used to really admire him as an artist when he first came out, but now his ego has blown through the roof.
  • Kanye is becoming more of a media whore than the Kardashians -- if that's possible.
  • This is a sure way to keep them from drawing attention by getting an attention seeking vehicle. So, who's going to protect North from the crazy folks in the truck with her?
