T-Pain and Hert (formerly of Hoonigan) did a rap song with a rotary engine as the track, and it's actually pretty good and funny!

My wife and I were really surprised at how well Hert can rap. Excellent.

Won't lie, this made me want an RX7 more than I already do but I'm still cheap. Maybe rotary swap the drift car down the road when I blow up the inline 6 in the e36

A pleasant surprise.

I sold my Turbo II RX-7 at exactly the right time and don't miss the reality of it at all, though sometimes I miss the idea of it.

While I am very much not a fan of that musical genre, I truly enjoyed that. 

Assuming that this was made somewhat recently, I find it remarkable that a car last sold in the states in 1995 still has enthusiastic fans nearly 30 years later (other than me, I mean.)

Haha.  I enjoyed that.

I was deathly afraid that this was just another RX7 sound clip video when I clicked on this thread.

I heard about this song yesterday, and came here to see if anyone else had posted about it.

Last night in the garage I plugged my phone into the shop stereo to listen to this.  About 3 minutes in Mrs. VCH came out to see why the windows in the house were rattling.  My detached garage is 50 feet from the nearest part of the house, and she was in the living room, in the furthest part of the house from the garage.  I had all the doors in the garage closed.  

T-Pain is apparently a huge car nut.  This genre isn't normally my jam, nor am I particularly into rotaries, but I dug this.  Can't wait for an RX-7 LeMons team to use it as a theme.

I really love the intro to this.

First one guy is just using the throttle body to rev an engine, pointed toward the interior of the shop.

Another is using some sort of grinder up in the wheelwell of a car while squinting for eye protection.

Another guy is using a hammer as a wrench?

I also don't think it's a coincidence that it's an LS that he's hammering there instead of a Wankel.

I was expecting more of this and less music, but it was entertaining,
