From the hoopty coupe to that Ghost, dog
Pigeons on the roof like Ghost Dog
Along with a bit of internal rhyming, French makes nice use of one of RG’s favorite literary devices, the homophone. The first “Ghost, dog” refers to the extremely expensive Rolls-Royce Ghost, which Montana now claims to be driving in place of his old, beat-up car.
The second iteration of the phrase refers to the movie called Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, a 1999 film directed by Jim Jarmusch which starred Forest Whitaker as a hit man who only communicates by homing pigeon, and thus keeps a stable of birds. Montana’s pigeons are of a different kind entirely — it’s slang for a kilo of coke
