Making It Rain On Them Hoes: UK Rapper Tinie Tempah Drops $37K On First Pair Of “Marty McFly” Nikes

- By Bossip Staff

Which just goes to show you: financial irresponsibility isn’t just for American rappers.

TMZ reports Tinie Tempah became the first person to buy a pair of Nike’s “Back To The Future II”-inspired sneakers.

The very first pair of the Nike Air Mag — the Marty McFly shoe from “Back to the Future II” was auctioned off in L.A. last night … and the winning bidder dropped $37,500!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The auction — co-hosted by Joel McHale — went down at the Montalban Theater … and after an INTENSE stand-off between two shoe-a-holics … the winner was eventually crowned.

Along with the shoes, the winner also received a “plutonium case” where he can store his “McFly’s”

So … what kind of a person drops $37,500 on a pair of crazy “Back to the Future” shoes??? A 22-year-old British rapper named Tinie Tempah … that’s who.

TMZ spoke with Tinie’s rep … who told us the London native is a serious shoe collector … and he simply fell in love with the Marty McFly sneakers at the charity auction in L.A. last night.

We’re told Tinie — whose new song “Written In the Stars” has become a worldwide hit — is on his way to South Africa at the moment.

Hey: at least the money will go to a charity, right? SMH.
