Fly like the logo on my cousin’s 440

from Childish Gambino – Bonfire Lyrics on Rap Genius


Refers to American Muscle cars, especially the “Super Bee” models which typically had a displacement of 440ci, thus “fly” referring to the Super Bee 440ci cars.

The line could also refer to the BMW logo on a 440i. BMW originated as an airplane company, and the logo is in allusion to their origins. The logo is representative of a propeller whipping around a blue sky.
