"Drank in My Cup" is a song by American rapper Kirko Bangz. It is taken from his mixtape Progression 2: A Young Texas Playa. The Sound M.O.B. produced single is his highest charting song to date and has sold 1,000,000 copies digitally.[2] The song uses the word 'drank' a number of times as a clear reference to purple drank, a codeine-promethazine cocktail served in Sprite, a drink symbolic of the H-Town hip-hop scene, classically associated with chopped and screwed music. The song is full of references to this music scene, including the slow, relaxed rhythm of the song.
