Sammy Sosa skin cream, Michael Jackson disease
Sammy Sosa seems to have undergone a skin color transformation similar to Michael Jackson’s.
This last quatrain of Kool AD’s verse can also be read as an intricate metaphor for cocaine trafficking. Kool may be “past rap” and into cocaine—a rap trope made famous by artists like Clipse; see Keys Open Doors. He is an adept trafficker, a “mathemagician” who can turn coke into profit as quickly as he can say “hocus pocus.” Many artists use the names of white female celebrities as slang for varieties of coke—"Vanna White" has “no tits” because she is, in fact, a brick of high-grade cocaine. “Banana light cream soda” mashes together a light-hued beverage with the “[baking] soda” necessary to cook crack. The following line is both a callback to their previous single and documentation of a drug transaction. And the final line queers the celebrity-as-cocaine trope by referencing two strangely “white” male celebrities.
