Got some redbones to go out to Phoenix, get that Amare
A redbone is a ruddy, light-skinned black girl. In the classic meme of a sexy girl transporting drugs for a rapper, Jeezy has his redbone go to Arizona to buy him cocaine
Jeezy refers to cocaine here as “Amare”, referring to basketball player Amar'e Stoudemire, whose number is 1. This is a play on Jay-Z’s celebrated line:
Jeezy is saying that if Jay-Z pays $3K for a kilo of cocaine (a ridiculously low number), then he pays $1K!
You know what guys? How about this? I get people to PAY ME to take their cocaine? How about that? Are there any basketball players with negative numbers?!
