Hip-Hop's 25 Best Weed Songs

HowHighRedmanMethodMan.jpeg
In honor of today being 4/20—every smoker's favorite day of the year—SOTC has compiled the 25 Best Rap Songs relating to weed. Though some may be more about bud than others, all are guaranteed to make your high all the more enjoyable. Be forewarned, though... this list doesn't have any happy hippy weed music—this is straight thugged-out entertainment. Locate your lighters.



1. N.O.R.E., "Married To Marijuana"

Using the the analogy of weed as a girl, N.O.R.E. breaks down the relationship with his bottom bitch, Mary Jane. I know a lot of guys who spent all their money on trees instead of flowers and who relate to this song.

2. Redman, "How To Roll A Blunt"
Blunt-rolling 101, with some humor thrown in about the many characters you may encounter in your friendly neighborhood cipher. (The skit that precedes is pretty funny, too.)

3. Redman, "Pick It Up"
Pretty straightforward: What would you do if you were walking along the street and saw a bag of weed on the floor?

4. Cypress Hill, "Hits from the Bong"
This beat out "I Want To Get High" by just a gram or two thanks to it being so laid-back and hazy. B Real's nasal flow makes rapping about smoking pot sound as good as rapping about smoking fools.

5. Scarface, "Mary Jane"

A diagnosed manic-depressive, Brad Jordan has mentioned in interviews how weed helped him deal with his illness. Here then is a tribute to his "girl" Mary Jane, whose name alone makes him happy. In his rap, 'Face highlights how she's better than cigarettes and alcohol for relieving stress.

6. Luniz, "I Got 5 On It (remix)"
The original was so G! To combat the vacuum-lunged cheeba hawks and scavenger smokers, you charge anybody trying to hit your joint $5. Genius. When The Bay Area All Stars sprinkled verses on the remix, though, it became all the more potent.

7. Diamond D feat. Sadat X, "Never"

"Hey gang! I've got some grass!" Like abused lovers, D and X vow to never give up their love for weed—no matter how bad she treats them. If you've never heard of this song, press "play" up there right now.

8. KRS-One, "I'm A Blunt Getting Smoked"
KRS is crazy for this one. He gets creative, and everyone from Bill Clinton to Smooth B hits the blunt in the dream cipher. Good job, Kris. Now if we can just smoke enough for us to forget your appearance on Sean Hannity's show...

As good as this list is, it should be illegal to make anything about weed and hip hop and not mention snoop

Pretty good list.  I've seen most of these on other lists but there were some originals.  I wanted to add one that probably no one's ever heard.  My friend made this song, it's pretty funny (to the Rack City instrumental) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecX5MsLgqTY

Hip Hop, in it's essence, isn't about hating white people or anyone else.  Today, it's a culture (of almost all races) that uses many forms of expression (like music, poetry, art, dance, etc.) to uplift, educate, and/or inspire others.  The problem is that the highly manufactured "corporate-sponsored crapola" that you mentioned, is what's been/being fed to the masses, resulting in many being falsely led into believing that Hip Hop music is basically about black thugs promoting, drugs, sex, and violence.  Yes, there are many songs that fit that bill.  However, most of those songs hardly reflect Hip Hop's true essence.  But they're pretty much the only types that are allowed to be heard by the masses.  There's so much more Hip Hop out there that's just good music, but it's not being aired by most national/international media outlets.  This points to a hidden agenda of some sort.    It's like finding good, healthy food.  It exists in massive quantities.  However, it's not promoted to the masses in anywhere near the same capacity as fast food, junk food, and most unhealthy food. So you can get a big mac, that can kill you, pretty much anywhere in the world for a dollar if you follow the masses.  Or, you can go out of your way to get healthy food that costs more, is harder to find (but still existing in mass quantities), and will prolong your life.  Again, a hidden agenda is at hand.   If you're someone who's striving to make this "crapola", or are supporting/hating those that do, then you've already been sucked into the devious agendas behind these corporate contraptions.  Part of these agendas have to do with the economic gains behind keeping people separated and polarized.  Don't by into this propagandized hype.  The hate you feel isn't coming from Hip Hop.  It's coming from the controllers of the media outlets.  So don't be a hater or suggest hateful retaliation.If you are, you're just buying into the corporate manufactured madness.  Don't let the fact that you feel Hip Hop is hateful turn you into a hater.  Instead of that, inject your expression of how it should be.  But be aware that if you do that, and it's from your heart, then you will have become part of the true Hip Hop culture.

Whites need to come up with some songs that promote violence against violent niggers, the same way outdated "hip-hop" garbage of yesteryear is corporate-sponsored crapola that promotes violence against Whites. I'm glad that all these jewish/satanist "record companies" are going out of business. Producing music that advocates violence against innocent people is a sick thing to do.

I hate "hip-hop", because its outdated racist trash that promotes violence. It's corporate garbage that promotes violence against White people.

Even if you're not an expert in the Hip-Hop field you could hear that weed is being mentioned very frequently by the rap artists over the years. 

FUCKYOU

This list was completely fucking stupid. Whoever came up with this was probably snorting cocaine off his grandmother's tits. And that's IF it was even cocaine because it was probably his mom's pubic dandruff he snorted.

Bone Thugs~N~Harmony and Snoop Dogg not on the list? Jesus rollerblading Christ, what a worthless shitbag of an author for not doing his thorough research. Termination would only be the slightest bit of justice. Complete justice would be deportation.

It's not like it was as hard as peeling an orange with boxing gloves on! Goddamn, come on. Wake up.

How in the hell could you leave DJ Quik's "Tha Bombudd" off the list?  That would almost be like making a list of Christmas Hip Hop songs without Run DMC's "Christmas In Hollis"  And as others have mentioned, no Snoop, no Bone?  This list does seem like it was thrown together at the last minute by a bunch of non Hip Hop heads.  Damn shame!!!

This list is garbage....I agree that Snoop should have made the list.  But what about BONE?  They made a song called "the weed song", what about Budah Lovas?  You could damn near fill the list with just bone songs.  Devin didn't make the list?  ASAP Rocky did? C'mon son...

This list reeks of a hastily assembled "hey, we need a post for 4/20 guys...throw together a compilation of songs". You guys really didn't include one Snoop Dogg song? He only walks around high every day of his life, you'd think there was a decent weed song in his catalog. You could probably replace Xxplosive, which wasn't a weed song whatsoever, it was moreso a sequel to "Aint No Fun If The Homies Cant Have None", an ode to sex.
