Talking green sticky never brown crispy
Worse thing for my paper was when the drought hit me

from Brother Ali – Need A Knot Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Green and sticky weed is considered to be premium quality. Brown and crispy would mean that it is schwag or ditch-weed. In terms of his lawn-mowing, it means that he couldn’t cut the grass unless it was green and healthy, not brown and dying. That’s why the drought would hurt his lawn-mowing business. In terms of a weed dealer, a drought would mean that supply would go down and therefore the price of the product would go up.
