"So fly like a G6..." What is G6 anyways?

Every time I get in my car and turn on the radio I hear the catchy song by the band Far East Movement, whose tune "Like a G6" has once reached No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. And although G6 is the abbreviation for quite a lot of things as it may refer to international policies or a digital camera, or a Pontiac car in this case the meaning of G6 is the Gulfstream G650 the latest and hottest jet aircraft. As fortune magazine reffered on its october 8 2010 article: "Most of us will never fly in a private jet, but if we can't live the dream, we can at least rap about it."

Poppin' bottles in the ice, like a blizzard

When we drink we do it right gettin' slizzard

Sippin' sizzurp in my ride, like Three 6

Now I'm feelin' so fly like a G6.
