Hip-hop songs, rappers, and cars have a traceable link back to the late 1970s when the Sugarhill Gang mentioned Lincoln and Cadillac by name in their song “Rapper's Delight. According to HypeBeast, the most name dropped manufacturer in hip-hop history is Mercedes-Benz and the rapper who mentions cars the most is The Game, with 473 car mentions throughout his songs. Cars and hip-hop are now seemingly inseparable with the likes of Maybach Music taking its name from a car manufacturer as well as plenty of songs inspired by luxury or custom vehicles. Many of these vehicles are modified in order to project the image or persona that the rapper is wanting to project to the masses and some of these vehicles are incredibly unique. Check out these rap crews' signature vehicles, some of which have been seen in multiple music videos.
Ruff Ryders And The Quad Bike
DMX, Eve, Swizz Beats, and The Lox were all a part of the Ruff Ryder rap crew who had an affinity for inner-city motorcycle and quad stunts within their videos. Quad bikes were a permanent feature of music videos from the crew throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s.
