I used to hang out with my daddy's brothers, I call them my uncles
They taught me how to smoke herb, I followed them when they ran numbers
Big Boi learned to smoke with his dad friends who often sold weed. It is pretty common for children to call close friends of their parents “aunt” or “uncle”, similar to how Snoop Dogg calls all of the younger rappers he works with his “nephew”. It is just a term of endearment, the two aren’t actually related.
