    as far as I know, Common is the first to drop a reference to Tesla in a mainstream music song.

    his new album - "Nobody's Smiling"

    Song: Hustle Harder (at 1:15)

    "Never gettin' gas like a Tesla..."

    congrats, Common. you were always ahead of the pack... :cool:

    Good find! I found a couple as well (didn't say they were well-known songs lol), surprised it hasn't been name-dropped more often (I will fix that when my inevitable music career takes off!).:biggrin:

    Some more context of Common's lyrics ... btw I have always respected and admired Common. Love him!

    "Hustle Harder" by Common
    Go to the steam room and she carry a steamer
    Beamer benz she got friends
    She got friends in high ends
    She know trend she know when
    She go in like an investor
    Yes sir, never getting gas like a Tesla
    Ain't about all that extra



    "Purple Kisses" by ASAP Mob
    So take your picture, get your close-up
    Another fake imitation, just a poser on a poster
    I did it again for my culture
    Went Tesla roadster,traded it in for a Rover
    Just to get a n***a chauffeured
    Driver pull over, tipping and picking these h**s up


    "Elevators" by Chuck Inglish (Feat. Buddy & Polyester The Saint)
    Match the Grant Hills up with the Fila suit
    Real live n***a rap and you see it too
    Tesla coupe went the scenic route

    That's all I could find tho about the car. There's many more songs that name drop the inventor tho!


    BONUS ROUND:


    "Tesla Free Energy" by Full-Blooded Mutt
    Free Energy!
    Tesla will rise again!

    ^^^^^ this one amused me... clearly he's talking about superchargers... right??? ;)


    "Corrupt" by Trinity:
    You know when the cops are comin' to get ya
    Tryna' light you up quicker than Nikola Tesla

    "Poet Laureate Infinity" by Canibus:
    on the back of an Elephant with advanced intelligence
    Like Nikola Tesla,****! damn that's a smart elephant

    "Get On Down" by Cadence Weapon
    Nobody fresher, flyer than a single engine Cessna
    With the propellers,I’m stellar, more electric than Tesla


    Plus a few songs that are entirely about Nikola Tesla. All of these are pretty awesome! Well worth your time if you are a Nikola Tesla fan.
