Cheers: A Timeline of Hip-Hop’s Drinks of Choice

In honor of Cinco de Mayo (the day non-Mexicans get drunk because they think it’s Mexican Independence Day), thinks it’d be fitting to list some of the more popular alcoholic drinks mentioned in hip-hop music.

MCs always tend to have a drink du jour, whether it is Ice Cube “slangin’ bean pies and St. Ides in the same sentence” or Busta Rhymes stomping on Monique’s toes because she drank the last of the Courvoisier. Big business is listening also; every time a key influence, such as Diddy, name drops a product, sales automatically shoot up. It’s the kind of advertising money can’t buy.

So sit back and relax. This round’s on us.—Jesus Trivino Alarcon
