Yellow Lambo in the driveway
A buck thirty-five, I'm on the highway

from Jay Z – Somewhereinamerica Lyrics on Rap Genius


His new neighbors can see what he’s about simply by looking at the yellow Lamborghini he has parked in his driveway. It’s quite possibly a Lamborghini Countach, the same Countach that he refers to on FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt.

Another reference to Great Gatsby. In Great Gatsby, Nick Carraway visited his “new neighbor” Gatsby, who happened to have a Yellow Duseunberg, the 1920’s equivalent of lambo. In the book and movie, yellow symbolizes fake gold, which means the yellow car is new money’s failing attempt to enter high society: playing on the line, “You can turn up your nose high society.”

Then, he’s referring to driving 135 Mph on the highway.
