These three high-profile R&B/rapping aficionados collaborate talking about the perks that come with being famous. They can drink until drunk, smoke weed until high, and get the women they want.

He was the first rapper to refer to weed as broccoli on his tracks. Black utilized the term in his first single. Other rappers started using the reference, too.

Skrt
