So again.. NEW SCHOOL RAPPERS in their feelings over something REAL O.G. rappers BEEN doing. Case it point, Kodak Black went on IG to BLAST Lil' Yachty and D.R.A.M. over the use of the TERM 'Broccoli' to refer to WEED. He calls the two OUT for 'STEALING' his term.... BUT WAIT, E-40 BEEN using this term since the '90's!!!
“What the f*ck, man? Who these ni**as is, choppin’ my lil’ swag, man, talking about broccoli, man?” asked Black. “From now on, man, I don’t smoke broccoli no more. I smoke cantaloupe, since these square-ass ni**as trying to steal my lil’ swag.”
DUMB right? I mean you think REALLY you are the ONLY PERSON in the WORLD to ever use a GREEN VEGETABLE as a colloquial term for WEED??
Lil' Yachty QUICKLY RESPONDED with his own video citing that he ALWAYS gives PROPS to KODAK:
Long before today even D.R.A.M. gave props to Kodak for his use of the word:
“Broccoli is a general term,” he told Genius. “I only smoke OG Kush, that’s all I smoke, but broccoli is just trees. I didn’t know that this wasn’t a much-used term. We used vegetables [as words for] weed but broccoli went off for me. Kodak Black was one of the first guys I heard refer to weed as broccoli and I just thought it was a thing. I didn’t know it was that rare for broccoli to be considered a term for weed.”
REWIND!!! Now you can not TRADEMARK a WORD that is COMMON in the DICTIONARY, but if you REALLY REALLY want to get TECHNICAL, the word DATES BACK TO 1998 when E-40 dropped the track 'Broccoli'. 40 raps: “I don’t need no shrink / All I need is broccoli and a 40-O to drink / Smokin’ that broccoli now.”
So I wonder if E-40 is going to come out of the wordworks to add to this lil' drama. I think Kodak needs to worry more about his legal issues and that 100k bond he just dropped to get out of jail. What do you think??? Some things are MORE IMPORTANT in LIFE!
