One of America's best poets has a line in a poem I don't quite get. Christopher George Latore Wallace wrote, "And watch a movie in the Jacuzzi smoke, L's while you do me".

What are L's? is that slang for pounds?

TIA

smoke a L. A euphemism for smoking crack. Most crack pipes are shaped somewhat like an "L," where the vertical line is the barrel of the pipe and the horizontal line is the bowl where the crack is placed. Heard in the lyrics of Ride Wit Me by Nelly: If you wanna go and take a ride wit me.
You're welcome.

This is the right answer, it's a slang for EL or El Producto (shortened to L), a popular brand of cigars used to roll blunts. It's a marijuana reference, not crack.
yea, biggie wasn't smokin crack in a tub lol, this thread is weird and kinda illustrates a disconnect between cultures in our society.
