The ancient wisdom of bunning weed isn’t lost on the hip-hop faithful, and thankfully so. Every 420, the ardent smokers within our community become shamans for one-day-only. This year’s 420 falls on a day of rest, giving way to a ritual countdown free of paranoia. Free of the rush-rush e-mails you might encounter during a weekday. Just a whole lot of weed smoke in the general atmosphere, equating to a welcome confusion of sorts, will all the intermingling strains we’ve been introduced in the dawn of “boutique ganja.”
The beauty of 420 is that it doesn’t require you to fly off to Amsterdam or book a fancy ticket to the “Cannabis Cup” just to get in on the dynamism. Once you get your hands on the plug, you’re but a few steps away from realizing your ideal 420 experience. That’s where our Wake & Bake Playlist comes into play in rounding out the goodness.
This year’s Spotify submission retains much of the irrevokable material from past issuances (this is our 3rd-year serving this public need). Songs like Wiz Khalifa‘s “Mezmorized” and Red & Meth’s “How High” have become 420 standards, and hence they take valuable real estate on our Wake & Bake list. Several new additions to the yearly mix have come to pass, by artists like Mick Jenkins, Rico Nasty, Lil Baby and Valee. Hip-hop and rolling up go hand in hand, so why do without either precept.
So before so set up shop in a comfortable locale, give us your thoughts on our Wake & Bake picks, and tell us, what’s strain are you going with this weekend? Happy 420, be safe.
