I'm from where shorties fucked up, double-cupped up
Kanye reps Chi-Town, where kids are misguided, miseducated, and following the popular trend of drinking that purple drank. You normally use 2 cups when drinking the prescription cough medicine, promethazine w/ codeine. When sipping, the cup “sweats” just like how a glass of ice water would, so you double-cup so your drink doesn’t slip out of your hands.
