The new Comedy Central series Broad City is already a breakout hit, with the Amy Poehler-produced show starring Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer recently getting the green-light for a second season.

The comedic travails of the two twenty-something protagonists often veers into highly surreal territory, including the latest episode (which debuts tonight, March 19) which opens with a slow-motion fantasy sequence of the show’s stars going to a bank to deposit a check for “eight f—ing thousand dollars” while Drake‘s anthem to opulence, “Started from the Bottom” plays in the background.

The ladies’ homage to hip-hop extends beyond just the Drake soundtrack — the scene finds Glazer decked out in an inflated trash bag, a nod to Missy Elliott‘s music video for 1997 single, “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly),” replicating the rapper’s flashy sunglasses in the clip with a gold bike helmet. Jacobson gets in on the action with a blond wig, cat ears and a white fake fur coat over a red bra and leather shorts ensemble.

The new episode of Broad City premieres tonight (March 19) at 10:30 pm/9:30 pm Central on the Comedy Central network.
