Beamer, Benz, or Bentley: The Remixes You Haven’t Heard
The instrumental for Lloyd Banks’ latest smash, “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley” has spawned yet another onslaught of freestyles from a host of rappers. Thus far, Cassidy, Joell Ortiz, Maino, Serius Jones, and Joe Budden with Royce Da 5’9 have all taken Banks’ “Beamer, Benz, or Bentley” out for a test drive of their own, and while we do appreciate their clever spins on the theme (Ortiz gets props for his blue-collar response, “Nissan, Honda, Chevy”), there are still plenty of other threesomes we would like to hear rappers rap about. Below, five such topics, and the choices we would make between all three.
The Options: “Chicken, Steak, or Fish”
The Choice: Depends. Is the chicken fried? How fresh is the fish? Is the steak a T-Bone or is it a Porterhouse? So many decisions, we’re just going to have to go with chicken here. Even if it’s not fried, it’s much harder to screw up than a fish or a steak.
The Options: “Jay-Z, Biggie, or Nas”
The Choice: If we said it’s a tie, is that taking the easy way out?
The Options: “Basketball, Baseball, or Football”
The Choice: Few things are more relaxing than watching a baseball game in person. Few things are better than a Sunday in front of the television watching football all day. What’s better than both of these things? Basketball, whether live or in person, it’s the most fun game to watch, and honestly, the one sport most of us in this office can play with any sort of decency. Speaking of basketball…
The Options: “Kobe, Jordan, or ‘Bron”
The Choice: One of these guys is not like the others, and he’s the one we’re going with. Jordan for the win!
The Options: “Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner”
The Choice: We’re still going with the wisdom our parents one shared with us. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Then again in the VIBE offices, we would probably have to say dinner because we don’t sleep to get breakfast.
