Far East Movement Fly "Like A G6" at Power 96's North Pole Party December 17

As opposed to rap-phobic product pushers like Hennessy, the Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation is totally stoked that peeps be namedroppin' its shit.

In October, company spokesman Jeff Miller told Fortune Magazine that his employer was "thrilled" to hear Far East Movement's "Like a G6" making reference to the G-650 aircraft, even amid lines about sucking back sizzurp and driving drunk. So maybe now the Los Angeles electro rap crew will finally win a free private plane.

Probably not. (The G-650 costs roughly $58.5 million.) But considering the amount of gratis advertising Gulfstream's gotten out of the song, it's only fair that band members Kev Nish, Prohgress, J-Splif, and DJ Virman score some kind of sponsorship deal.

After all, "Like a G6" edged close to Mach 1 in the months following its April 2010 drop date, eventually selling several million digital copies and taking the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Hence, a proposition for Gulfstream: What if Far East Movement wrote a jingle for your holiday ad campaign? Would that make up the difference? We're waiting to hear from you, Jeff.
