There's plenty you could say about the Mercedes-Benz 190 series. It's built like a tank, for starters. You might even call it an enduring icon of the 1980s. And considering that it ended production – replaced by the first C-Class – in 1993, the fact there are still scads of them out on the road speaks to its reliability. We wouldn't exactly call it Pimpin', though the cousin that proudly inherited our grandfather's 190D might beg to differ. As would these two hip hop impresarios.

Follow the jump and you'll be treated to "The Mighty 190," a rap video tribute to the soon-to-be classic Benz sport sedan. In what we can only assume is somewhat tongue-in-cheek tribute, rappers Jan Emil Wathne and Ivar Kjetland lay it down, old school, with the wheels to match. (The result, however, is not strictly safe for work, so proceed with caution.)

      Proud owner of a 1986 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3. 26 years old and still looks and runs like a dream. :)

      Ah, the good old days--when Mercs weren't jammed with electronics and were actually reliable.

      Too bad so many German cars have become nearly disposable today (in the electronics department anyways). Guy w/out glasses looks like Tim from Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job.

      Miss my old 190. Red, manual transmission. Should have kept it. Had two E classes from the '90s. All were tanks. Loved the feel of them and never had problems. Present E class, ... you guess. No more MB for me.

      I'm driving one daily right now. It's a very good basic car with excellent road manners.

      I had a 190D for a few years and loved it...such a tank, and averaged around 35mpg!

      It may not be too tongue-in-cheek, because you know it's all true. The Mighty! The Mighty! The Mighty 190!

      I actually like the video its not meant to be a grammy award winner or anything like that. It just for fun and laughs and some of you guys are too up tight. Made me actually think about a car ( 190 ) that I wouldn't have thought about before. I actually think the car still looks good with its classic Benz design.
