The asthmatic drug addict I function with it

from The Roots – 75 Bars [Black's Reconstruction] Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

No. The thing is, my close friends like Pharoahe & Dice are but I am not. I see my friends with asthma smoke and smoke. But when I was talking about myself it was in relationship to the line before about blunts and liquor, which are things I do do.

Asthma is no laughing matter… (everyone laughs)
