Putting It Bluntly With Big Boi, DJ Burn One, Freddie Gibbs & Curren$y (by J. Tinsley)

Posted by Mr. Put On on April 20, 2010

April 20th. Numerically known as “4:20.” Just the thought of date and its subliminal meaning alone creates euphoria. The civil union of marijuana and music dates back not only years, but decades and genres. Jimi Hendrix was a known herbal supporter (along with several other substances). Satchmo, otherwise referred to as Louis Armstrong, smoked marijuana on a daily basis. A personal doctor, Dr. Gary Zucker, even admitted there was no evidence it did him any harm. Arguably the plant’s most famous endorser, Bob Marley, still finds himself plastered on the walls of Mary Jane connoisseurs worldwide.

Hip-Hop has long since professed its love for Mary Jane as well. This love is so blatant, it may be easy to believe that April 20th is simply another day and the meaning behind it serves no purpose. Not exactly. La La loyalists, Big Boi, Burn One , Freddie Gibbs and Curren$y, recently took the time to reflect on their favorite marijuana memories.

"Don't Even Think Of Purchasing This On Monday…"

Posted by J. Tinsley on April 15, 2009

Will Smith, Tom Cruise, Jennifer Aniston, Justin Timberlake, Scooter Braun and more tell you why to not buy Asher Roth’s debut album ‘Asleep In The Bread Aisle’.

You know, I was thinking the same thing.  Why the hell would I want to buy this Eminem reject’s album anyway? I mean seriously, the dude is a gimmick and won’t last past this first album.  I mean, his sh*t, it’s aight son…but my sh*t John Blaze for real. I swear, if I ever caught this dude in the street…I’d stomp him out. Word to Orlando Anderson. (Keep reading…)

"Because I Know This Date Is Marked On Your Calendar…"

Posted by J. Tinsley on April 14, 2009

It sucks having to play catch up and that’s what I’ll be doing for most of the posts today.  Before I really get into the bulk of things, today starts off the abbreviated countdown to one of the most notorious holidays of the year, April 20.
