Late night coolin' with my homies

[While Biggie's lyrics tend to read like a menu (champagne, T-bone steak, and buttercrunch cookies), 'Pac's songs are pretty sparse on the food front. This one saved me from trying to manipulate Hennessy on a plate.]

After smokin' stopped in Oakland 

Got some munchies for some soul food

So we stopped to get a bite to eat

At the local barbecue 

Song: Dopefiend's Diner

Artist: Tupac

Materials used: BBQ sauce

To all the ladies in this place

[“Juicy” will always be one of my favorite songs, but Biggie’s menu in “Big Poppa” – which seems to have inspired brunches (and interviews by the pool?), both good and horrible – seemed more fitting than sardines for this king.]

So we can steam on the way to the telly

Go fill my belly

A T-bone steak, cheese eggs, and Welch's grape

Song: Big Poppa

Artist: The Notorious B.I.G.

Materials used: grape juice and sugar
