This song is the first single from American rapper and G-Unit member Lloyd Banks' third solo album. Banks said in a statement: "'Beamer, Benz or Bentley,' (is) a club record, party record, car record. It's a lot of energy. I want everybody to look forward to my third album. It's definitely gonna be worth the wait."
The song features Harlem rapper Juelz Santana on the second verse. John Depp, who is a member of Santana's rap group as well as Banks' cousin brought together the two hip hop artists. Banks explained to MTV News: "The Juelz feature is something that didn't happen in [the past] because we had two of our own entities. G-Unit had a lot of our own artists we had to showcase, same with Dipset. I was doing records with Prodigy, Mobb Deep, with everybody. I didn't have to go outside the circle. I was excited about the staff we had there. Now it's time for change."
The album is named after Lloyd Banks' debut album The Hunger For More. He explained the album title to Billboard magazine: The 'Hunger for More' idea came from a book that tells a story about robbing a bank," said the G-Unit rapper, "and I'm basically taking what's mine. That's the statement I'm trying to make - I'm hungrier than before, and this time I'm taking everything."
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
"(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love, and Understanding" was written by Nick Lowe in 1974. The original version with his group Brinsley Schwarz was kind of somber, but Elvis Costello made it a classic with his 1978 uptempo take.
