1. Show Me What You Got

Danica Patrick in a Pagani Zonda Roadster races Jay-Z and Dale Earnhardt, Jr., who are in a Ferrari F430 Spider, around the streets of Monaco. To a car nut, this is the definition of car porn. 2. Lost Ones

Rappers love their Maybachs. Diddy even gave his son one for the latter’s birthday--such a loving father. So it’s no surprise that Jay-Z would use one for his music videos. But he didn’t use just any exclusive Maybach for this video, he drove the one-off Maybach Exelero coupe worth around $8 million. Under the hood is the bi-turbo V12 inherited from the Maybach 57 S and it has a top speed of 351kph. 3. ’03 Bonnie and Clyde

Jay-Z and Beyoncé play a couple on the run from the law, and their getaway car is the beautiful Aston Martin V12 Vanquish. The two make being an outlaw look glamorous and cool. It’s either the car or Beyoncé’s Burberry bikini. She’s married now so we’ll take the car, thank you. 4. On To The Next One

Jay-Z sets aside the rump-shaking hos and shimmering bling and makes a darker video than we’re accustomed to. But that doesn’t mean he held back on his car fixation here. The all-new Jaguar XJ is lovingly caressed by lingering camera angles in this single from Jay-Z’s latest album, The Blueprint IIII. 5. Money Ain’t A Thang

With an opening that goes, “In the Ferrari or Jaguar switchin four lanes/With the top down screamin’ out/Money ain’t a thang,” you can feel the promise of sports cars in this video. True enough, a Bentley Continental, Range Rover, Porsche 911 Carrera and a Ferrari F355 make an appearance. Wait for the second half when Jay-Z and Jermaine Dupri race their Italian and German supercars and the police chase them. 6. Blue Magic

Jay-Z and Pharrell cruise around town in classic luxury, a Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith and a Rolls-Royce Corniche II respectively. It’s refreshing that they don’t automatically opt for the latest cars and go old school sometimes. 7. IZZO (H.O.V.A.)

It looks like a Mercedes-Benz commercial, with the convoy of S-Classes and Jay-Z in the middle riding a G-Class (like I said, the man has taste), but videos like this are also a fantasy. When you see the star sitting in the Benz with flags on its hood, you want to be that person in the middle of the convoy. And notice there are no wang-wangs? This shows that you can be a VIP without being an asshole on the road. I think I want to be reincarnated as a rapper. Din-z? D to the inzo?
