According to the “No Flex Zone” rap brothers’ rider, obtained by TMZ
, every time Swae Lee and Slim Jimmy board their travel bus, they expect:
- Two dozen chicken wings
- Spicy Crunch Dorito Tacos from Taco Bell
- Two bottles of Ace of Spades Champagne
- Two bottles of Moet Chandon Champagne
- One bottle of Hennessy
- Small Super Soakers
- Beach balls
- $300 in singles
They also demand a 15-person-capacity van equipped with a stripper pole to transport them to the airport.
