I didn't know the designer was an African-American. I always thought it was aimed at middle-aged white men who wanted some sort of updated 2008 muscle car. I vaguely remember reading that somewhere in some article, although it never made sense to me. Did the designer ever admit there was an intentional element of copying the RR phantom design to it, or do people just assume it? I thought the fact that the hip-hop generation embraced it was merely a serendipitous event. Kind of like how Lincoln Navigators and Cadillac Escalade's were originally made for old white guys to drive to the country club, but became popular with rap stars.
