Maurice Garland and I had a conversation many moons ago about marijuana and how it seems to be prerequisite for rappers these days. Before I go any further, this isn’t coming down anyone who smokes weed because I was definitely about that action some time ago. Live your life and if it includes smoking a blunt, all the more power to you. I know, I know. Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Curren$y, Freddie Gibbs, Rick Ross and others make it look so cool during their studio sessions and music videos. Most aspiring rappers, however, have day jobs. Day jobs that drug test. And most aspiring rappers, for lack of a better term, suck.
Take this Kirby/Matt Pinfield/Oddjob looking fellow for instance.
After dropping 10 or more of his craziest bars, big fella took a hit of kush (or a really bad bag). It turned out to be too much to handle as he plummeted to the ground quicker than Kobe Bryant’s approval rating in the gay and lesbian community. Look, I won’t lie to you, I know he probably wasn’t serious with his performance. Anyhow, I did get a hearty laugh – yes, hearty – out of this after I saw him regain his center of balance. Still, let this be a lesson to anyone out there who hopes to make their ability to make words rhyme their primary means of income. You do not have to smoke weed to get taken seriously. If the music is dope (no pun intended), your fancy for THC is of no importance.
