Asanti. Lexani. They sound like the names of ghetto-fabulous toddlers, but for those not hip to the urban revolution chronicled in the pages of magazines like DUB and King, they're actually manufacturers of so-called "luxury alloys," with Asanti standing as Lexani's ber-lux brand. Think it couldn't get more gauche? Check yo' head, childrens, because shit's about to get weird: Asanti has introduced a set of diamond-encrusted 22-inchers that run a cool mil for a set of four. The upside? They come with a free Bentley Continental GT; essentially a $150,000 rebate. We intentionally avoided the company's booth at the SEMA show, afraid that our inner punk would begin lobbing eggs at the display of pure automotive garishness.
