The Formula: 15 Hip Hop Drink Recipes From Rappers Who Made Them Famous

From Thug Passion and Hurricane to Mali-booyow, K.C. Tea and OG Diddy, HipHopDX gives you 15 cocktails that came from Rap lyrics, that'll leave you "dead bent."

It's St. Patrick's Day, and to many of us, that means a day for celebration, carrying on - and that's just a nice way of saying drinking.

While HipHopDX staffers have long been customers at King Tee's beerstand, allowing Obie Trice to grab the second round, and burping along to beloved lyrics by Tash, J-Ro and E-Swift, we wanted to ask Hip Hop emcees what their drink of choice is. As cocktail bars are all the rage these days, look no further than some of your favorite rappers for how to make that signature drink that'll get you "dead bent."

Thug Passion: 2Pac

    HipHopDX still for some reason does not acknowledge Caribou Lou. Last article like this one also left it off. Even better than they pick KC Tea and leave it off somehow. KC Tea is the shit tho. Better than Caribou.

  • J.R. Riggs

    Somebody must have forgotten about the ultimate party anthem "Caribou Lou." I'm guessing that's because it never charted, wth. Either way it's as well known as Gin and Juice and far more known of than ninety percent of the rest of the list. Then again, if you were throwing out "classic" rhymes dedicated to the liquor you would've added "Tanqueray" by DJ Quik too, another unmentioned classic...

  • dongs

    *insert comment about lack of Caribou Lou here*

  • Bryant Carter

    Musician yes guitar player yes. Just moved back to Hollywood California. Material is done for an album just about, but I am also offering my guitar servies for studio session work, gigs for people needing a guitar player, touring, or even joining or starting a band. Don't ou know how many artists are going with the live band sound these days? I'm still all about the dj's and producers making beats but lets put some live guitar over that stuff rather it be in the studio or live on stage. Here is the link to my youtube channel here you will see things like soul from a guitar player, and a tribute to people like 2 pac, jimi hendrix, and yes even Michael Jackson. Check it out let me know if your interested. My email is Thank you, Bryant C

    Dainey is just St. Ides, not St. Ides & pina colada champale. That's why the line says "Pina colada champale MIXED with Dainey"

  • jeff

    youre really promoting syrup on here?? and quoted pimp c, who died from it?? fucking idiots.

    • jeff

      when i say rap music, i mean gun clapping, maybach driving, dumbshit music with no real meaning or substance. SOMETIMES this site posts good information or tracks, this is why i look at it.

    • jeff

      not everyone is catching my point here. syrup is totally different than liquor. liquor is alcohol and is meant to get you drunk. syrups is made from cough syrup, which is meant to, ummm, clear out your cough. thats like telling people to drink bleach to get fucked up. never blamed pimp c for anything, obviously no one forced him to drink syrup. everything on this list is an alcohol, aside from the one where they tell you drink cough syrup. it does not belong on this list and is in bad taste to post it on a fucking hip hop site when one of its biggest names died from it. and then to quote him. DONT FOLLOW THAT FOOLS MISTAKE. theyre just glamorizing shit...typical rap move.

    • DJG

      "rap music is fucking dumb" get the fuck off this site then! p.s nobody forced Pimp C to drink that shit..

    • C

      Yo shut the fuck up people die from dif shit everyday i guess they should not have put liq up here at all seein how people die of alcohol poisonin everyday. but u are rite about rap tho.

    • Nelson Guevara

      LOL. True.

    • jeff

      i didnt say he invented saying he DIED from it and these clowns are promoting it on a site with thousands of viewers. thats irresponsible. rap music is fucking dumb. all a goddamn show and solely revolves around being cool. and fuck this sites stupid fucking ads while youre at it.

    • Anonymous

      Pimp C didn't invent syrup. Old folks were sipping back in the 70s!!! Way before some god damn hip-hop or Pimp C came along!!!!!

  • Micky R

    I DRINK BEEAH. Coqui 900.

  • Fizzy Womack

    I can't believe you guys left off Caribou Lous and used K.C. Tea... For those who don't know, Caribou Lou is 151, Malibu Rum, Pineapple Juice - do it!
