Good News: We Found a Jeep Wrangler Song! Bad News: It’s Awful(ly Funny)

18-2014-wrangler-speakers

Full disclosure: it isn’t necessarily “easy” to write about one particular vehicle all day. Coming up with fresh and innovative topics can be difficult, and my research often leads me down some of the internet’s odd rabbit holes. However, every now and then, I’ll randomly come across an absolute gem, and that’s what happened as I was investigating the beloved Jeep Wrangler.

C.KhiD (pronounced with a very hard ‘D,’ I assume), a rapper with 2,360 Twitter followers, whom I’ve definitely never heard of, produced an ode to his favorite nameplate back in 2010. The, uh, “song” hasn’t exactly exploded when it comes to popularity, as the, er, “music video” has only collected 4,073 YouTube views in more than five years (2,000 of which are probably via C.KhiD).

Of course, I’m not going to be overly critical of my boy C.KhiD. After all, he produced an entire rap about one of my favorite vehicles ever! Sure, anyone could come up with a witty chorus, but who actually has the gumption to crudely produce an actual demo? C.KhiD, that’s who!

I figured it’d be in everyone’s best interest to actually read the lyrics. I’ve included two transcriptions of the song: my first attempt and my second attempt. For the second transcription, I decided to analyze the main Wrangler attributes that C.KhiD was (perhaps) trying to showcase. Plus, while the rapper was likely talking about his previous-year Wrangler, we’re going to take a 2016 approach to this analysis. So, without further ado, I present the lyrics to “Jeep Wrangler Music.”*

*- quick aside: don’t you think C.KhiD could have put a bit more effort into the song’s title?

Second Transcription Attempt: C.KhiD’s “Jeep Wrangler Music”

“Beep beep, beep beep.
I got big Jeep dreams.
Wrangling all the cash,
riding over every day.
I want to see the cash drop
Sunshine whipping in my hair
Pounding like the bass, the block knows I’m here.”

[Repeat “chorus”]

With all of this talk of money, it certainly reminds us that the Jeep Wrangler is one of the most affordable SUVs on the market. Customers are going to have a difficult time finding a better deal than the Wrangler’s $23,895 MSRP. Plus, thanks to the vehicle’s reliability and incredible fuel economy (17 city/21 highway miles per gallon when equipped with the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine and five-speed automatic transmission), the cost of ownership will be kept to a minimum.

Meanwhile, speaking of that pounding bass, the Wrangler’s Alpine Premium Sound System delivers best-in-class audio. The unit features four 6.5-inch speakers, a pair of weather-resistant tweeters, and an all-weather subwoofer.

“Beep beep
Who the winningest G’s?
Woahhhh
Somebody girl go with me
She like to dream and I go oh too hard
She’s sitting in the ride riding Ocean Boulevard.”

Right… we’re going to assume that C.KhiD is referring to the Wrangler’s abundance of comfort and stylish features. The Wrangler’s interior can be adorned with a number of soft-touch materials, including the attractive McKinley leather trim. These complement the available heated front seats perfectly if those sea breezes get too aggressive.

Meanwhile, engineers also added several technological amenities to the 2016 model. The Radio 430N system is the most advanced of them all, providing drivers with SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Garmin GPS Navigation, and even a DVD player. These functions can all be accessed via the high-resolution 6.5-inch touchscreen. Meanwhile, the premium instrument cluster will provide drivers with all of the Wrangler’s most important information.

“South Beach, babe, we vacation like you
Still thinking money, but like the breeze, I’m cool
You say I’m just doing what I wanna
Girls want to have fun, that’s why she’s with her brother.”

Aww, family bonding is always nice… especially when you’re off-roading in a new Jeep Wrangler. Since C.KhiD is traveling through South Beach, he probably rode his Wrangler on the sand a few times.

The Wrangler touts the brand’s Trail Rated badge, meaning it’s more than capable of traveling off the beaten path. These capabilities can be partly attributed to the impressive 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 engine. The unit delivers a best-in-class 285 horsepower and 260 pounds-feet of torque. Best of all, the unit is relatively fuel efficient (as we touched on earlier).

Of course, we can’t solely credit the Wrangler’s engines for its performance abilities. The available 4×4 systems (including Command-Trac and Rock-Trac) help boost the vehicle’s overall drivability when traveling in challenging conditions. Whether you’re driving through a foot of snow or a pile of mud, these mechanical inclusions will help you overcome any obstacles. Meanwhile, the Tru-Lok locking differentials will boost the traction to ideal levels, while the sway bar disconnect system allows for maximum flexibility.

“That’s it, don’t trip sucka, do not be a dummy
The pressure high when she hanging ’round some money
The young Carolina print, please don’t be mad
On the cellphone yelling, ‘go throw it in the bag.”

There’s no reason to throw that phone, especially considering the Wrangler’s variety of storage spots. The lockable center console is the perfect spot to hide your most valuable cargo, whether it be your cellphone or another expensive gadget.

If you have larger luggage to store, you can rely on the abundance of cargo room. The Wrangler delivers 12.8-cubic-feet of space behind the second row and an incredible 56.5-cubic-feet behind the first row. Thanks to the fold-and-tumble seats, drivers can configure their interior to properly fit all of their equipment.

“Beep beep, beep beep.
I got big Jeep dreams.
Wrangling all the cash,
riding over every day.
I want to see the cash drop
Sunshine whipping in my hair
Pounding like the bass, the block knows I’m here.”

[Repeat “Chorus”]

Big dreams, big major in this game
Making money since I got this game as my savior
Hold up, turn it up, can you hear my hustle
Got about a million in every vocal muscle
This real money speaking Rosetta for days,
To my dreamers, go for yours and holla back.”

Hey, you heard the man. C.KhiD is telling you to ‘go for yours,’ and he’s clearly referring to the Jeep Wrangler. While a subpar rap song may not necessarily convince you that this SUV is the right choice, hopefully our analysis did the trick.
