One thing we know is that hip hop loves cars. And in order to create a hip hop video there are three must have items to make it complete: cars, boats, and girls. Check out our list of 10 hip hop videos that feature some of the dopest cars that cost as much as the video!
10. Notorious B.I.G. – Hypnotize
Car of choice: 97′ BMW 328i
Who can forget Biggie and Puffy (aka the Versace Duo) being chased while driving backwards…yes..backwards! Puffy has been pushing fly cars since the early 90′s and those shiny suit days. Biggie and Puff come in at #10 with the BMW 328i convertible.
9. Jermaine Dupri & Jay-Z – Money Ain’t A Thing
Cars of choice: 98′ Bentley Continental ,98 Red Ferrari F355
Way before Playaz Circle existed, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jermaine Dupri[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay- Z[/lastfm] were the original duffel bag boys with this joint. This video has everything from Bentley’s and Ferrari’s to horse racing. I guess Jermaine Dupri really is Living The Life!
8. Diddy feat. Mario Winans – Through The Pain
Car of choice: 2004 Ferrari 360 Spider
Fast forward 13 years later from the Hypnotize video and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Diddy[/lastfm] is still a boss in the game pushing some of hip hop’s priciest whips! I guess it’s true when he says, I can’t stop, won’t stop.
7. Jay-Z – Lost Ones
Car of choice: Maybach Exelero
So, you know you’re a boss if you’re pushing a Maybach. Not many rappers have the money or status to be able to push a whip so extravagant. Jay comes in at number 7 with the Maybach Excelero.
6. 50 Cent – I Get Money
Car of choice: 08′ Lamborghini Murcielago LP640
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm] opened up his Runaway film with “I fantasize about this back in Chicago, mercy mercy me, that Murcielago”. Apparently [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]50 Cent[/lastfm] fantasizes about it also! In the I Get Money video (potentially one of the dopest club bangers ever!!!) , 50 pulled out this toy aka the lime green sprite Lambo Murcielago. Kanye West and 50 Cent might hate each other but one things for sure..they both share a love for Lambos!
5. Jay- Z- Show Me What You Got
Cars of choice: Ferrari 430 Spider, Pagani Zonda
What’s doper than having the sexy Danica Patrick and race car driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. racing each other off the coast of Monaco with you in the passenger seat? I’m not sure there is anything! If you’re going to do a music video with hot cars and hot girls…this is the way you want to go! It doesn’t get any sexier than Ferrari’s, Boats, Pagani Zonda’s, and James Bond Scenes.
4. Rick Ross – Speedin
Cars of choice: Ferrari’s, Speedboats, motorcycles, every damn thing!
3. Jay-Z & Beyonce – Bonnie and Clyde
Car of choice: 2002 Aston Martin V12 Vanquish
[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rick Ross[/lastfm] isn’t the only Aston Martin lover in hip hop. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Beyonce [/lastfm] were pushing one well before the rapper. Being that Jay & Bee are hip hop’s elite couple…who KNOWS what they’re pushing these days.
2. Lost Boyz – Jeeps, Lex, Coup, Bimaz, Benz
Cars of choice: Self Explainatory
So before [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jay-Z[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rick Ross[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Diddy[/lastfm] were pushing Aston Martin coupes, Ferrari Spiders, and Beemers…Lost Boys made the anthem to pave the way for hip hop stuntin’.
1.Rick Ross – Aston Martin Music
Car of choice: 2010 Aston Martin
There’s nothing to even say about this video except for it’s a MOVIE…Ferrari Spiders and GT’s every damn where! [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rick Ross [/lastfm]does it major!
And of course the number 1 spot goes to Mr. Rozay himself [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rick Ross[/lastfm]. If you’re going to stunt hard, you might as well do it in a James Bond Aston Martin…oh and make a song about it too!
So today we’ve learned that hip hop loves Boats, Ferrari’s, and James Bond. If you’re thinking about shooting a video for your next joint, you might want to consider heading down to your local Ferrari dealer and asking for the Ricky Rozay special.
