UK YouTuber Trap Lore Ross takes a look at hip-hop’s infatuation with British luxury car manufacturer, Bentley Motors Limited, and why rappers are often seen pushing Bentleys in their videos and personal lives.
In a bit of a change from his usual format, Ross is upfront about the fact that Bentley has provided him with a whip to film with, so long as he takes time to praise the brand in the process. Ross does a great job giving you a tour of the luxury vehicle, while breaking down some examples of how Bentley has been a status symbol within Blood gang culture, as well as with rappers in general, gang ties or not.
“The Bentley. For the last few decades this brand has been synonymous with ballers, shot callers, rappers and trappers, the entire world over. And this weekend, for some reason, the suckers over at Bentley have decided to let me, your boy Trap Lore Ross, take one of their cars home to try it out.” – Trap Lore Ross
