Could it have been "he's in Papa's business", i.e. his father's business? In some places the diminutive is spelt (and pronounced) Poppa.


I guess you are referring to:


(Recreational Drugs) an amyl nitrite capsule, which is crushed and its contents inhaled by drug users as a stimulant

Source: Collins Dictionary

Popper business probably refers to dealing with this sort of drugs.

  • Is it some kind of slang?

  • I guess it is, like the many names that we hear every time a new drug becomes popular.
