We've assembled a photo gallery of rappers such as Rick Ross, Kanye West, Tyga, Pimp C, and of course Cam'ron, in an array of different furs. Take a look...

It is rumored, that at the turn of the twentieth century, marijuana and music were married in New Orleans. Jazz was in its infancy; as experimental art-form it found Mary Jane to be a complimentary companion.
