The hip-hop world is a less than sensible place - lots of times, you're even required to clarify when bad means bad and when bad means good - so once a week we're going to get with a rapper and ask them to explain things. Something you always wanted to ask a rapper? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This Week's Rapper: Reggie
This Week's Prompt: Which are the six best rap songs about weed and/or the smoking of said weed? And can you provide a tiny bit of commentary for each selection?
Reggie: Here are the six songs about that herb that I fuck with:
"Up," Wiz Khalifa
"Up" is one of those songs that you can put on in a hot box and just space out to. The tone in which Wiz delivers, and the mood that that beat puts you in, is amazing.
"Anythang," Devin the Dude
This song isn't necessarily about weed, but it reminds me of the times at PV I had with my niggas. During my sophomore year, me and my roommates smoked morning, noon, and night, and every session that song was on the iPod speakers.
Anything from E. 1999, Bone Thugs-n-Harmony
This CD brings back my earliest memories of weed; hanging with my cousin Jarvis off of Tidwell. We would hoop while home and this nigga named Prudonne rolled up. They had the fattest blunts ever back then and the weed was so lime green. I can see it vividly with my eyes closed. Being a young nigga in Acres Home was rough back then. Certain shit made it easier to be around.
"All I Need," Mary and Method Man
Another classic. I always associate this song with weed cause of Meth. I feel like he made this about weed but for commercial appeal it's 'bout a female.
"I Got 5 On It," Luniz

If you fuck with rap and weed, it's self explanatory.
"Still Smokin'," Mystikal
First CD I ever owned and one of my favorite songs on it. I was a huge No Limit fan so weed and Hennessy is up there too.
