Rap albums listicles gone overboard: food and cars for Jay and Ye

The usage of listicles on the web seems to be going overboard these days, especially for rap albums.

First Complex gave Yeezus the listicle treatment for all car mentions on the album, and now Thrillist even looks at what food and drink Jay is rapping about on Magna Carta Holy Grail.

What does make the food and drink references slightly more interesting, though are Jay’s hyping (e.g. his Absolut Vodka movie) or bashing of brands (e.g. his take-down of Cristal).

What would be even more fun is to find out which of the food and drink references are actually slang for something else, like when Wu Tang used to rap about Ice Cream.
