• Broccoli is a slang term for marijuana. He explained:
"Broccoli is a general term. I only smoke OG Kush, that's all I smoke, but broccoli is just trees.
I didn't know that this wasn't a much-used term. We used vegetables [as words for] weed but broccoli went off for me."
"Kodak Black was one of the first guys I heard refer to weed as broccoli and I just thought it was a thing.
I didn't know it was that rare for broccoli to be considered a term for weed."
Broccoli is a certified Gold Record.
• It features a verse from Atlanta rapper
D.R.A.M. was introduced to Yachty through Rick Rubin. He explained:
"I was in Shangri La and Rick asked me if he could bring Yachty through. We linked and played each other music.
A good month later, one of my main camera guys was following Yachty around during his SXSW run and
I came about during the conversation. We exchanged numbers and I saw he was in LA, so I called him
and he answered on the first f---ng ring."
"He came to the studio and we had the loop of this going. We weren't sure on what was going
to make it carry over. At first, it was the piano with the drum loop, we had the flute and when
that went in, everyone started vibing. Yachty started on his verse and I didn't have any
bars at first so I told him to go in. When he left, I didn't even have my verse, I just had the bridge."
"It was just good timing. It turned into something more than I expected, to be honest,
I thought it'd be something dope for Soundcloud and just good for the culture. But the
fact that it's bleeding into every facet of the musical charts, it's dope as hell."
