  • Lyrics
  • 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."
