Best Rap Songs that Talk About Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz Mentions in Hip Hop

There’s something in the air when it comes to the hip hop community and Mercedes-Benz. I imagine it has a lot to do with the fact that the manufacturer makes some of the best vehicles on the road (I might be a little biased, but hey) and that there is a thread of exclusivity when it comes to the German automaker. Either way, there are two things rappers really seem to love: Mercedes-Benz and rims (and we’re here to talk about the former).

We were honestly looking to create a full list of all the times that Mercs got mentioned in rap songs, but apparently there are literally thousands of them. Mercedes-Benz mentions are so prevalent in hip hop and rap, in fact, that they squash the number two spot (Bentley) by more than double.

As much as we’d like to hunt down every mention for our readers, that would be a months-long (years, maybe) ordeal that would completely turn this blog on its head and thoroughly change the subject matter. That all being said, we decided to whittle it down to just our favorites. We’re probably aging ourself a little bit with the picks below, but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re seriously great songs.

So, without further ado and in no particular order – here are our favorite (which are obviously the best) rap songs that talk about Mercedes-Benz with the titles being links to each song’s video/song:

Eminem – Forgot About Dre

Slim Shady, hotter then a set of twin babies
In a Mercedes Benz with the windows up
When the temp goes up to the mid-80s
Calling men ladies, sorry, Doc, but I been crazy

 

Notorious B.I.G.- Big Poppa

Believe me sweety I got enough to feed the needy
No need to be greedy I got mad friends with Benz’s
C-notes by the layers, true f**kin players
Jump in the Rover and come over

 

2pac – Picture Me Rollin’

Picture me rolling in my 500 Benz
I got no love for these n***as, there’s no need to be friends

 

50 Cent – In da Club

When I pull out up front, you see the Benz on dubs
When I roll twenty deep, it’s twenty knives in the club

 

Jay-Z & Kanye West – Otis (Feat. Otis Redding)

Now I’m bout to make them tuck they whole summer in
They say I’m crazy, well, I’m ’bout to go dumb again
They ain’t see me ’cause I pulled up in my other Benz
Last week I was in my other other Benz

 

A Tribe Called Quest – Jazz (We’ve Got)

Do it for the strong, we do it for the meek
Boom it in your boom it in your boom it in your Jeep
Or your Honda or your Beemer or your Legend or your Benz
The rave of the town to your foes and your friends

 

Puff Daddy & Mase – Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down

We made hits that’ll rearrange your whole set
And got a Benz, that I ain’t even drove yet

 

Outkast – Benz or Beamer

I got these thoughts, similar to the ones that call in the wild
Up in the Benz is where I be doin about a hundred miles

 

Not into rap? Don’t think we forgot about you. Probably the most well-known reference to Mercedes-Benz in music comes from none other than the Eagles with their classic Hotel California:

Her mind is Tiffany-twisted, she got the Mercedes bends
She got a lot of pretty, pretty boys, that she calls friends
How they dance in the courtyard, sweet summer sweat
Some dance to remember, some dance to forget

Here’s hoping you like our faves! If you don’t, you might want to reconsider your taste in music 😉

Mercedes Powers Through November Sales

Mercedes-Benz Sales Soared Last Month

For yet another month in a row Mercedes has led in the sale of luxury autos in the US, seeing the competitor BMW take a swift fall this november. While overall Mercedes sales grew by 1.1 percent this month, their competitor BMW AG saw an 18% drop in sales leaving BMW to eat Mercedes’ dust.

Not looking to help their vehicle sales but want to keep your classic running smooth, you may want to consider replacing your Mercedes-Benz transmission.

 

Mercedes-Benz sold the most luxury autos in the U.S. again in November, virtually guaranteeing that the Daimler AG brand will take the full-year title from BMW.

Sales of the Mercedes GLC sport utility vehicle more than tripled while C-Class car deliveries held steady, giving the brand a 1.1 percent increase for the month to 30,363 autos, according to a statement Thursday. Toyota Motor Corp. said Lexus slipped 1 percent to 29,050 vehicles, and BMW AG reported an 18 percent drop to 26,189 for its namesake marque.

Mercedes is offering more SUVs and in a broader price range, said Rebecca Lindland, senior analyst at Kelley Blue Book. “They have a sense of how to make them attainable without losing that sense of luxury,” which is giving Mercedes a competitive advantage, she said. Continue Reading

1955 Mercedes-Benz 300 SL Gullwing a Rare Beauty

cooper-weeks-55-300-sl-gullwing

An Investment Like No Other

Originally purchased for $6,000 back in 1965 by Cooper Weeks, a now-retired airline captain for TWA, this ‘55 300 SL Gullwing is now worth $1.5 million and certainly looks like it’s worth at least that much.

If you’re thinking about getting a classic back to pristine shape for yourself, check out our selection of Mercedes-Benz body parts as an excellent starting point.

 

When I was growing up in Des Moines, Iowa, nobody had ever heard of a Gullwing. In 1965, I saw an ad in a Road & Track magazine for one for sale on consignment. It was in Switzerland. I didn’t know what it was, but it struck me.

When I bought it for $6,000 (shipping was included), my father told me, “You can’t buy that car!” It was a used car, and I could buy a new Cadillac for that price. We had no idea the Gullwing would become an icon. A lot of people think of it today as the most beautiful car ever built.

In its day, the Gullwing was the fastest production car in existence—about 160 mph. It had cutting-edge technology like fuel injection, and the styling was radical, most notably the doors, which open like the wings of a bird.

Movie stars owned these cars, such as Clark Gable and Paul Newman. It was only made from 1954 to 1957, and that’s one of the reasons it is such a notable collector’s car today. Continue Reading

All-Electric Mercedes-Benz SUV Coming in 2020

EQ Class SUV is a Stunner

As much as we love classic Mercedes-Benz parts and the cars they fit into, we can’t help but find ourselves more than a little excited for some of the new stuff that Mercedes has in the works.

For instance, the slick new all-electric EQ series SUV that’s going to be coming out in 2020 looks undeniably cool both inside and out and we can’t wait to give it a test run.

 

Believe it or not, the world’s first all-electric cars were invented nearly 200 years ago, offering quiet, easy operation for quick around-town trips (check out my in-depth examination of EVs here).

Mercedes-Benz, being the old automotive standby that it is, first got into the EV game in 1906, but like every other major automaker, eventually ditched the batteries in favor of a gas tank.

Now, with all-electric transportation once again on the rise, Mercedes has decided to double down on EV investment, and it’s looking like its new major effort will be an SUV. Packing more than 300 miles of range, oodles of luxury, the very latest autonomous tech, and a serious amount of muscle, Merc’s new upcoming model looks to dominate a segment that’s only now starting to emerge.Continue Reading

Mercedes-Benz Continues to Up its Truck Game

mercedes_benz_x_class_concept

Luxe and Utility in a Pickup

Despite your thoughts on whether or not Mercedes-Benz should be building pickup trucks, they’re going to do so regardless. We’re okay with it, though, as long as they continue to put out awesome-looking pickups like their X Class concept (shown above).

If you end up getting one (and if they ever get brought to the states), a more classic set of Mercedes-Benz rims might be in order if you don’t like the stock ones the truck will come with.

A quick look at sales year to date shows the overwhelming share of trucks outstripping cars, a trend that’s accelerating as automakers pour on truck models, including luxury-brand mash-ups that would’ve been unthinkable traditionally, like a Mercedes-Benz pickup, or a Jaguar SUV.

With U.S. automakers due to report November auto sales on Thursday, Dec. 1, there’s no contest between cars and trucks, and little doubt that on the strength of its truck sales Mercedes-Benz will be the luxury-brand champ again this year over Lexus and the BMW brand, by an even wider margin than last year.

Year to date through October, for the whole U.S. industry trucks made up 60 percent of sales, up from 56 percent at the same time last year, according to the Automotive News Data Center. Continue Reading

Mike WiLL Made-It Made it Through Car Getting Totaled

Mike Will Made-It took to twitter with a video of his totaled Mercedes showing the extent of the damage his Mercedes endured in the hit and run that he seems to have survived relatively unscathed.

His praises to AMG may seem a little misplaced, Mercedes-Benz has a long track record of ensuring the safety of their drivers and passengers with top of the line features. It seems that Mercedes body crumpling to absorb the shock of the collision paid off as Mike lives to tweet another day.

 

High-profile Hip Hop producer Mike WiLL Made-It uploaded a video of his totaled Mercedes to Twitter after being the victim of a hit-and-run over the weekend.

The producer, famously responsible for Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” as well as hits for Gucci Mane, Miley Cyrus, Beyonce and many others, posted a video to his Twitter account showing the damage done to his Mercedes. He was thankful that the car absorbed all of the damage though, specifically including “Thank God for AMG” in his message.

Writing on Twitter, Mike WiLL Made-It tweeted: “Woke up this morning blessed. Blessed to make it out. Survived a hit n run last night in my 63, Thank God for AMG. Continue Reading

Come 2018 Mercedes Will Release The AMG GT Black

amg-gt-black

Cool AMG Coupe Coming Soon

Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers had a recent interview with Top Gear magazine dropping juicy hints and details for the upcoming release of the ultra-premium Black series in AMG.

It seems the goal of the Black series is to take successful AMG models and push them to perfection with overhauls to make them more powerful, smoother and “balanced” as Moers put it.

We can expect the Black series to resemble previous well loved models, with a major tune up from bumper to bumper.

 

A new maximum-performance edition of the amazing Mercedes-AMG GT will hit dealers in 2018, Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers told Top Gear magazine. The new Black Series will top even the incredible AMG GT R announced in June.

The upgrade will start under the hood, because even the GT R doesn’t make enough power for Moers’ liking. “I know the GT R chassis is able to handle more power,” Moers told Top Gear.

But this new flagship GT won’t just be a muscle car. We already know that AMG can build powerful engines, like the V8 in the 612-horsepower E63, but they are looking for balanced performance from the upcoming Black Series, he said. Continue Reading
