We all know weed is a huge part of music culture, and let's face it, we know when an artist is singing about the mystical, magical plant we call marijuana. Whether they directly call it that or not (they usually don't, because that wouldn't be very "cool"), there are some artists that are SO discreet, they actually find new and creative ways to reference the plant. It could be cool, confusing, or downright hilarious. No matter what the outcome, here are a few attempts from artists who tried to sing about the illegal substance.
"Chocolate" by The 1975
You're listening to this song and having innocent fun until you realize something. Wait... chocolate doesn't make enough of a smell to get stuck in your hair and car... I mean, unless you're baking chocolate cake. And why are the cops after him? There must be a different type of baking going on...
"Brown Sugar" by D'Angelo
Although it's called "Brown Sugar," he's not talking about the sugar you find in the supermarket. Personifying brown sugar is pretty smart but if a girl is making your eyes burgundy then there are issues in that relationship and you should get out now.
"Cartoons & Cereal" by Kendrick Lamar ft. Gunplay
Cartoons and cereal play a huge part in every child's morning routine. However when it comes to Kendrick, a little something got added into his mornings, making them more exciting.
"Kaya" by Bob Marley
Kaya has many meanings -- an elder sister, a yew, rock, and now, a plant that Bob Marley sure does love. It is a good song to listen to while enjoying some Kaya! #BlazeIt...
"Broccoli" by D.R.A.M
Mama did say to always eat your greens, but she was never specific on which ones!
