Cristal go by the cases, wait hold up that was racist
I would prefer the Aces, ain't no different when you taste it
Cristal was THE champagne in the rap game until 2006 when managing director Frédéric Rouzaud hinted that the brand wouldn’t mind losing the publicity garnered by hip hop.
Rocky thinks Aces and Cristal taste the same anyway, which could allude to a few things:
His palate isn’t developed enough to detect the differences in champagne, which would contradict his chorus claim: “Party like a cowboy or a rockstar”
Champagne doesn’t come in different flavors, i.e. races, like humans do, and therefore, it doesn’t matter what you drink.
Of course if you chase it with malt liquor, one brand of champagne is as good as the next.
This line is also possibly a nod to Lauryn Hill classic “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in which she raps “Cristal by the case men, still in they mother’s basement”.
