Back in his pioneering days, Jay-Z was exposing imaginary players to life's great luxuries. His whip of choice? A Range Rover 4.6 HSE. For '97-era Mr. Carter, the higher price point between the sporty 4.6 HSE and the more pedestrian 4.0 SE—for comparison sake, the 4.6 hit 0-60 in 8.5 seconds to the 4.0's 10.5—was the main rationale for purchase.

This money-driven mentality gave reason for the rapper to stray to other brands—a mistake, for sure—including the now defunct Maybach. Desire to ball, clearly, clouded best judgement in car choice. 

Now happily married and with child, we believe Jigga should revisit Britain's iconic SUV and rediscover the essential qualities that make the car, and brand, the perfect match for the Carter family.
