TRIBUTE

The weather was fucking beautiful today. It's perfect weather to chill on rooftops with everyones favorite drink.

Ahhhhh yes, the 40 of champs. A little hiphop culture info dealing with this 40?

"The beverage turns up repeatedly in rap music and gangsta culture. Eazy-E appeared on album covers with an Olde English 800 bottle. In the 1990s era gangsta films, Boyz N the Hood (1991), Menace II Society (1993), the film's main characters drink Olde English. It is referenced in LL Cool J's 1990 song "Mama Said Knock You Out", DJ Quik's "8 Ball", KMD's "Sweet Premium Wine", N.W.A.'s "8 Ball", and Old Dirty Bastard's "Sussudio". The Game has recorded a song titled "Ol' English" which appears on the album Doctor's Advocate. Bone Thugs-n-Harmony also refer to the drink in their song "Thuggish Ruggish Bone."


Interesting. And if your not a fan of the beverage, there are a few ways to spice it up.

Olde English can be used to make the beer cocktail known as Brass Monkey or Ghetto Sunrise. Typically, the first quarter to third of a 40 ounce bottle is consumed, and then topped off with Sunny Delight.

Olde English can also be used to make you Lickasic, popularized by Gangsta rap Brotha Lynch Hung. Again the first quarter to third of a 40 ounce bottle is consumed, and then topped off with Gin.

Olde English can be used to make the beer cocktail known as a Black Eight. The 40oz bottle is consumed down to the label and then topped off with a 12 oz Guiness Stout. This was popularized by the Tha Alkaholiks.

Olde English can also be used to make Blood Juice. Once consumed, the first quarter to third of the 40 ounce bottle is topped off with Thunderbird or Night Train and a packet of Kool-Aid.
