Lots of rap album names go with the "X and Y" formula: Kanye's 808 and Heartbreaks, Meek Mill's Dreams and Nightmares, Lupe's Food and Liquor. But this is the best of them all. A witty play on Snoop's "Gin and Juice," the title of this conscious-rap benchmark simultaneously makes you laugh and think-about racism, alcoholism, and hip-hop's role in propagating both. It's a heavy load for just three words.
