420 is just one of those days that if you know what its about you know.... But in case you didn't know we are here to let you know 420 (April 20) is a day internationally where people blaze up in celebration of the smoker's holiday. And what good is a holiday if you don't have any music to go along with it. When it comes to marijuana there are certainly some artists that easily come to the top of one's mind, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg and Bone Thugs N Harmony just to name a few.
We've put together a playlist full of the best songs dedicated to the chronic, whether you press play while partaking or not is completely up to you but here are 10 of the best you'll find on it.
Afroman - Because I Got High
Supposedly everything is funnier when you are high, but being high isn't needed to hear how hilarious this tale is. The video features a cameo from famous stoners Jay & Silent Bob.
Luniz - I Got 5 On It
There probably isn't a line about copping that has become part of the lexicon more so than this one from Luniz
Beastie Boys - Hold It Now Hit It
One of the earlier hip hop songs about getting high and having a good time. This video clearly demonstrates the fun that the group was having on the road.
Styles P - Good Times
The rapper describes some crazy scenarios in his life during this song that wouldn't register as a good time in most people's minds, but hey thats why he needed to stay high.
Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa & Bruno Mars - Young, Wild & Free
If there was a picture dictionary about weed and hip hop the cover of it would clearly be these two artists, Snoop Dogg the OG who's been the face of it since of the 90s and his young weed protege for the new G's Wiz Khalifa.
Method Man & Redman - How High
Outside of Wiz and Snoop this duo might be one of the biggest when it comes to weed and hip hop. Anybody else remember their movie How High where they grinded up the bones of one of their homies and then laced a blunt with it?
Bone Thugs N Harmony - The Weed Song
It's a bit ridiculous how passionately the group members were harmonizing while rapping about weed. The passion is clearly felt in this song and that helps make it as great as it is.
Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Kurupt, Nate Dogg - The Next Episode
This song only includes one of the best one liners done by one of the best to ever do hip hop choruses... the one and only Nate Dogg... So we'll end on the note like only he could put it...
"smoke weed every day"
So we know there are plenty more songs out there celebrating that mary jane, and you can vibe out to our curated playlist for this blazin' holiday, follow and listen below!
