Fresh off our salute to barber shops for quenching the thirst of folks with Nutcrackers, seeing Troy Ave get a haircut in the “Chiddy Chiddy Bang Bang” video has us thirsty for the icey treat for adults. Actually the choices of beverages and their containers are the highlight of “Chiddy Chiddy Bang Bang.” Troy Ave aka Harry Powder is sipping champagne out of a measuring cup. You’ve never seen a Pyrex vision like this before.
Time well spent in the kitchen might mean all the dishes and cups are greasier than some of the backstreets of Albany Ave in Brooklyn. The next best thing: a clean 8 or 16oz glass measuring cup. F a bedazzled pimp goblet. We don’t do those over here. Lil Jon and Bishop Magic Don Juan know the measuring cup gets top shelf status like the fine china. Where would you be without its form and function? Clear, sturdy, and built with a spout used to carefully pour out for absent homies. There isn’t a substitute that still measures up with its own level of civilization. Our cup nostalgia now runneth over. So respect Troy Ave’s chalice. Cheers.
