"To my memory, crack mighta hit around 1984," RZA recalls in the two-hour special. "I remember my cousin Dirty was hanging out, and we was goin' to get some weed. He's like 'Hold, let's get some crack, too!' I was like 'What the f--- is that?' He's like 'Put the crack in the weed!' I'm like 'Alright, f--- it, you know, let's do it.' And we did it. We smoked it!"
"The first time I became aware of rock cocaine was when I spent a summer at one of my homeboys' house, J-Dogg in North Long Beach," Snoop explained. "He was hustlin' and I seen the little rocks in his hand I'm like 'Man, what is that?' He's like 'Money.'"
The show's narrator and executive producer Ice-T made headlines just days before the show aired, by making disparaging statements about rapper Rick Ross, whose history as a corrections officer and legal battle with crack pioneer Freeway Ricky Ross are both covered in the doc.
"Rick Ross stole a n----'s name. I call him 'Identity Crisis,'" Ice-T said.
"Rick Ross stole my name and my identity," Freeway Ricky Ross added. "He's been living the fraud. He's never sold drugs. He was a correctional officer. He's not me. He's not Rick Ross."
