Bought my sidekicks Suzuki Jeeps and Cherokees
Suzuki and Jeep are automotive brands.
The line is twofold: first, these cars aren’t luxury cars, but they are considered “nice” (a loaded Jeep Wrangler is upwards of $50,000). Jay is saying that he can afford to buy as a gift for his “sidekicks” (his crew) the same kindof car that most people use as their main vehicle.
Second, these are offroading and 4x4 brands, built for going off the beaten trail (check the 2014 Jeep Cherokee above). Jay’s saying that if you roll with him, you’re gonna need a vehicle that can handle some crazy shit. (Full disclosure, proud Wrangler owner right here.)
“Sidekicks” is also a play on the Suzuki Sidekick. A hot truck back in the day.
