    Post Show Info:
    • When Granddad calls Thugnificent and his friends “nappy-headed ho’s,” it is an allusion to former WFAN radio host Don Imus’ comments about the Rutgers University Women’s Basketball Team.
    • Granddad thinks that the guy who played him in the “Eff Granddad” music video, is the same guy from the movie “Friday”. This is an inside reference that John Witherspoon (the voice of Granddad) played Willie Jones in the 1995 film, Friday.
    • Big Tank to which Granddad talks to when he was recording is a reference to Derryck “Big Tank” Thornton the music Supervisor of the Show.
    • Thugnificent offers Riley some Incredible Hulk, a cocktail made with Hypnotiq and Hennessy.
