Year: 2007

Okay, so the modernized Chevy Impala SS was not quite the car that T.I. had in mind when rapping on "Top Back." But when Chevy called upon him and Jeezy (blink and you'll miss the Snowman) for this commercial, it was a big step forward for the longstanding relationship between hip-hop and classic-car culture. At least until Tip got caught up on illegal firearms charges and Chevy dumped the campaign. The Chevy execs might've known what to expect had they actually listened to the album version of the song, where he brags, "Got the Beretta in vision/And ready to pop the clip in."
