NARDO WICK is an up-and-coming rapper from Jacksonville, Florida.
In 2021, his song Who Want Smoke?? sparked a TikTok challenge in which many participants reportedly ended up being suspended from school.
What does 'who want smoke' mean?
In modern slang, "smoke" can refer to a battle or a challenge. The phrase "who want smoke?" can therefore indicate someone asking for a fight.
"Smoke" can often be associated with guns or gun battles, but also can refer to a lesser physical altercation, or even a spoken one.
In 2021, Nardo Wick released the song Who Want Smoke?? with fellow rappers Lil Durk, 21 Savage, and G Herbo.
The chorus repeats the phrase "who want smoke with me?" multiple times. According to an interpretation from Genius, "Smoke is referring to having grudge against or controversy with somebody else."
Throughout the song, Nardo refers to the use of guns multiple times.
