“Who I Smoke” lyrics reference Bibby
Youngeen Ace takes the lead on the “Who I Smoke” chorus. In the chorus he name-checks a number of deceased Florida rappers, including Bibby.
The chorus goes:
“Who I smoke?
Who I smoke?
Who I smoke?
And now I wonder…”
Who is Bibby?
Bibby was a rapper from Florida who was shot and killed in February 2019 at the age of 16. His real name was Adrian Gainer Jr. He was a student at Grand Park High School.
Bibby was born on 19 March 2002.
Hakeem Robinson, a 24-year-old rapper known “Ksoo,” was charged in the February 2019 murder of 16-year-old Adrian Gainer Jr.
Julio Foolio, a friend of Bibby’s and rival of Ksoo and Yungeen Ace, paid homage to Bibby in a song released 26 February 2020.
In the emotional track, Foolio sings: “Why the f*** you have to leave? Why couldn’t you stay with me?”
Foolio continued: “God already had a plan, you were heaven sent.”
Who else is mentioned in “Who I Smoke”?
The “Bibby” reference has caused the most drama – Foolio took to Instagram Live on 29 March 2021 to respond to “Who I Smoke” – but the song also name-checks two other rappers.
Lil Nine was a rapper whose real name was Denetri Mixson. He was shot and killed in June 2020 in Jacksonville, Florida. Lil Nine’s father Reginald Mixson created a GoFundMe at the time of his death.
