"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 song samples J. Holiday's hit single "Bed", which in return samples the R. Kelly song "Number One". 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.
