Devin The Dude may never be seen as a lyrical wizard such as Andre 3000 or as poetical as Scarface, but his name rings bells in every circle of Hip-Hop. And when it comes time for him to hang up his Kangol cap, he most likely will be remembered for a few key things: his affinity for cannabis and keen, comedic sensibilities.
Before every rapper was claiming to be extra-terrestrial, The Dude was spitting from the perspective of one on “Zeldar,” the slow moving intro track for 2002’s Just Tryin’ Ta Live. The composition was merely a recording of a show & tell presentation told from the point of view of an alien who stumbled onto Earth & discovered a green leafy thing in a field. He called it kill.
