What does Nelly mean by "smoke an L" in his song Ride Wit Me? I can't think of what L could stand for. Is it just a joint? If so, why L?

I just looked it up on Urbandictionary.com, and it's slang for a weed-filled cigar, also known as a blunt.

Hmm, weird. Wonder where that came from. Thanks!

I did some more research, and I don't think there's any real consensus, but I did read that it could be from how the blunt is rolled into an L shaped form prior to smoking. I don't have enough blunt rolling experience to know for certain if this is true, however.

Ah ok, I can see that. When you crack a blunt in half, if you looked at it cross-sectionally, I guess you could see an L.

On a side note, I now realize what Biggie Smalls meant in his song "Big Poppa":

Conversate for a few, cause in a few, we gon' do
What we came to do, ain't that right boo (truuuueee)
Forget the telly we just go to the crib
and watch a movie in the jacuzzi smoke l's while you do me...

Ah, you got me wondering about "smokin' indo"* which led me to here.


*It's actually Richard Cheese, not Snoop Dogg, who got me familiar with "Gin and Juice."

This post cracks me up because my husband, daughter and I were discussing the same question about a month ago. I didn't realize it was so popular. Maybe I need to start smoking "El's". lol
