There's generally nothing wrong with a rapper, even a conscious rapper, marketing an SUV. Mos Def once marketed a Denali and, you know what, the world didn't end. But there's… » 11/13/07 2:00pm 11/13/07 2:00pm

Ad Watch: Dwyane Wade's Dream Is To Give Away A Lincoln Navigator?

It's Precious to Be a Pimp: Burkitt and Burkitt Designs a…

If you didn't notice, there's a cold pimp war on, people, and the escalation has been accelerating of late (remember when dubs used to be big?). The guys at Burkitt and Burkitt are ready for the next plateau of one-upsmanship, with a plan for a Lincoln Navigator that's hand-encrusted with Swarovski crystals. A… » 6/19/06 1:23pm 6/19/06 1:23pm
