Hell just fell three thousand more degrees cooler
There are 3 possible interpretations to this line:
Dre could referring to the lines just before these talking about wines, where he mentions that we grab the finest wines and we’re quick to pay for fancier (and thus, more expensive) wine under the assumption that it will be better (but without knowing for sure since you aren’t a sommelier). Hell and He’ll is just a play on word meaning that the black man feels 3000 times cooler to be drinking the fancy wine!
He could also be suggesting he’s going to hell and when he does it will be 3000 degrees ‘cooler’. Now the reference here is that on his smash hit Hey Ya his name was Andre “Ice Cold” 3000, thus hell becomes ‘cooler’ (plus, we all know he is a very cool person)…and I think we all understand the 3000 reference.
Or, he could be referring to the old saying about hell freezing over, “this could only be real when hell freezes over”.
