MTV was the only station to edit the title of the song as "Pass That D****." Unlike VH1 and BET, the network feared controversy over the term "Dutch" - inspired by the popular Dutch Master cigar often used to roll blunts. Elliott wasn't the first singer to use the reference. The British reggae band Musical Youth released "Pass The Dutchie
" in 1982, although their "dutchie" was a Jamaican cooking pot, and a sanitized version of the original song "Pass The Kutchie" - a reference to a marijuana container.
