Vette Motors: the meaning of the lyrics

‘Vette is the nickname used for Corvette, the famous luxury car manifacturer. So the line in the chorus, “vette motors inside my hood”, refers to the presence of expensive cars in the rapper’s neighbourhood. Apparently, that has to do with criminality: the chorus refers to murder, and 187, which is a slang for murder too. On this point of view, the meaning of Vette Motors lyrics apparently refers to the powerful position of the rapper in the neighbourhood. Which means a lot of money, but also the possibility to decide the destiny of who live there and doesn’t behave.

Cutlass, ‘Vette motors inside my hood, yeah
Prince inside my hood, yеah, “Let’s get this understood,” I said (I said)
I bе with the masked men and they all unheard of (Unheard of)
One eighty-seven, just spent me a seven
Need Christian V steppin’, they know it’s a murder, this fit unheard of

Tough lifestly is often the topic of many modern rappers. In NBA YoungBoy case, his need is to confirm, to himself and the others, that he’s now rich and wealthy, he spends money in all the ways he likes, and he’s in power. The chorus introduces the figure of Christian V, king of Denmark, and he mentions a Prince, that could be him, ready to take the place of the dying king.

In the rest of the lyrics, YoungBoy confirms that he’s able to use his money to adjust his family’s life and to scare his enemies when needed. He mentions many symbols of wealth, like “the Rolls” (Royce cars), Patek (the prestigious luxury watch brand) and Maybach (another luxury car manifacturer).

I be liking all my stylists
Hold on, haircut fresh by stylist
