Wiz Khalifa Rolling Papers
With mixtape names like Burn After Rolling and Kush and Orange Juice, Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa has never made his love for weed a secret. In a 2010 interview, he revealed he spent $10,000 a month on mariuana. But the Taylor Gang leader decided he had to share the love, and make sure everyone could enjoy weed as much as he did. So that year, he launched his very own line of rolling papers, made of 100% premium hemp.
Wiz Khalifa's Rolling Papers are available on Ebay. Get yours today, and roll the best J you've ever rolled in celebration of this year's 4/20! We suggest turning on Kush and Orange Juice or Wiz's aptly titled 2011 album Rolling Papers for some dope background music.
"Why can' t everyone just smoke like me? Just gimme a quiet place and lemme roll my weed!" Wiz Khalifa-"Still Blazin"
Lil Debbie OG
It seems as if every dispensary in LA wants to use Bay Area rapper Lil Debbie's name without permission. The La Brea collective named a weed strain after her without even asking, and to make things even worse, she walked in there, and they didn't even know who she was. They offered her "half on her her eighth." There are many impostors, but there is only one true Lil Debbie weed strain, "Lil Debbie OG."
"My strain is the BEST," she said.
Lil Debbie OG is available at OC HotBox in Anaheim, CA.
"I got ratchets in my living room ’til 6 in the morning And when I finish up this weed, man I’m sending them home" - Lil Debbie on "Ratchets"
Riff Raff's Jodyhighroller
Like his friend Lil Debbie, Houston-bred, LA-based rapper Riff Raff also has his own strain of weed called Jody Highroller. In February, Riff Raff made an appearance at LA's popular dispensary Black Rose Collective. He smoked a lot of weed. Then he rapped about octopi and polar bears, and renamed an existing strain (a purple indica with a boring name) "Jody Highroller."
So, stop by the Black Rose Collective for some Jody Highroller this weekend. If you buy a gram, you get a free steamroller.
You never know who you'll see there. Last year, Snoop Dogg stopped by on 4/20, and Soulja Boy sold ice cream outside in June. It's also reported that A$AP Rocky falls through after getting his nails done next door.
"I done stole the torch, I done bought some starch I done waved wood on Tiger Woods' golf course Or Pete Sampras, weed in my damn baby pampers" - Riff Raff on "Larry Bird"
Berner's cookie fam includes Jigga, Flux, Pieguy, Sherbinsky, Mike Mike, and a couple "non-public members."
In addition to the Girl Scout Cookies strain, Berner and his fam have also created Cherry Kush, Cherry Pie, The Y, Snowman, Sherbert, Gelato, Pink Panties, F1, and F1 Durban, among others.
"Keep that weed smoke everywhere we go" - Berner on "Chapo"
Snoop Dogg G Pen
In 2013, legendary rapper Snoop Dogg teamed up with Grenco Science to proudly bring us the Snoop Dogg G Pen Herbal, the first in a collection of vaporizers designed by the rapper himself. Snoop Dogg's G Pen is engraved with his signature. It's sleek and stealthy, and perfect for concerts, weddings, Bar Mitzvahs...Basically, any event where subtletly is key.
The G Pen Herbal comes with one rechargable Snoop Dogg G Pen battery, one Snoop Dogg G Pen Herbal tank, one G Pen USB charger, one G wall adapter, 3 G cleaning tips, 1 G cleaning brush, and 2 G glass sleeves.
The G Pen is intended for use with dried herbs, but those are not included.
"What's fly about the vaporoizer is that it's clean and convenient," Snoop said. "Launching my custom G Pen is a great way to kick off the business partnership with Grenco Science."
In 2014, Snoop and Grenco introduced the microG Herbal Vaporizer, the second installment of his Double G Series.
"When I partnered with Grenco Science, I wanted to make sure that my 'Double G' series made the vaporizing experience simply and easy," said Snoop. "My 'Snoop Dogg microG represents that and is perfect for on-the-go."
Like the G Pen, the microG Pen is also intended to be used with dried herbs.
You can buy your Snoop Dogg G Pen or microG Pen here.
"G'ed up, C'ed up, motherfucker blaze the weed up." - Snoop Dogg on N.W.A.'s "Chin Check"
Curren$y Stoned Immaculate Giveaway
New Orleans rapper Curren$y loves weed. He rhymes about it, he talks about it in interviews, he takes pictures of him smoking it...You get the idea. So it was pretty fitting when, in 2012, he offered a free weed rolling tray to anyone who pre-ordered his album Stoned Immaculate.
To stay in the spirit, Curren$y also gave away two packs of Raw papers.
This year, Curren$y will be celebrating 4/20 with a performance in Houston.
"Suckas can't be down so they just be mad with us. We don't drink or smoke our hash with them ass kissers" - Curren$y on "Fast Cars Faster Women"
Flesh-N-Bone Creates Phifty Caliber Kush
In 2013, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony rapper Flesh-N-Bone ventured into the weed business with his own strain of medical marijuana called phifty caliber kush, a strain he created to help relieve pain.
Flesh inked a deal with a dispensary in Flint, MI to sell his strain. He's not just selling the weed, but also the seeds, so that consumers can grow their own stuff.
If you don't live anywhere near Flint, MI, check weedmaps to find a dispensary that sells phifty caliber kush near you!
"Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my my my my I know you wonder why I do it. Love the sky And I soar up so high" - Flesh-N-Bone on Bone Thugs-N-Harmony's "Weed Song"
In 2011, Compton rapper YG was one of the first rappers to launch his very own strain of weed.
YG's strain, YG OG, was created with Orange County dispensary Green Aid.
"Having my own weed makes me feel like the muthafuckin man!" YG said in a statement. "It gets you higher than you any other weed."
When Green Aid began carrying YG OG, it was in constant demand and sold out rather quickly.
Head over to weedmaps to see if you can find any!
"Bad bitch she in California and rollin' California, OG kush, nigga" - YG on "Don't Trust"
In February, RAW Papers recruited smoking advocates Dizzy Wright, Sir Michael Rocks, Pac Div's Like, and Mod Sun to spit a cypher for them, aptly called "Raw Cypher," in promotion for RAW mini clippers.
With super dope production from Scrilla, this cypher was awesome, and it'd be pretty sweet to hear more!
Juicy J Trippy Papers and Trippy Stick
In 2011, Juicy J released two videos for his songs promoting the Trippy Stick movement, "Geeked Up Off Them Bars" and "U Trippy Mane" featuring Kreayshawn. Juicy J was the first hip-hop artist to utter the words "We Trippy Mane" on a song. And he shows us what he means by "trippy" in these videos by using his Trippy Stick. Rappers like Wiz Khalifa and Curren$y have also made mention of the Trippy Stick.
In 2012, Juicy J also released his own line of rolling papers called "Trippy Papers."
The rapper continued to promote his love of weed and his support of the "trippy" movement with his 2013 album Stay Trippy.
Enjoy the videos, "Geeked Up Off Them Bars" and U Trippy Mane (featuring Kreayshawn)."
"Juicy and Kreayshawn. That's a smoking marathon" -Juicy J on "U Trippy Mane" feat. Kreayshawn
For years, we've heard some of our favorite hip-hop artists rap about weed; from Snoop Dogg and Devin The Dude to Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa.
In the 90s and early 2000s, smoking marijuana was largely unaccepted and taboo. There was talk that weed was "dangerous," and despite debates and research showing that it was actually safe, and had possible healing properties, it remained banned in every US state. In recent years, more states have come to realize the medical benefits of marijuana, and it has become legal (for medical use only) in many states. It is, however, legal for both medical and recreational use in Colorado and Washington. But let's be honest. Way before marijuana use was approved in certain states, we were listening to Snoop Dogg and Devin the Dude, and we were intrigued. Rappers made weed sound cool.
Since more and more states have started to legalize marijuana, at least for medical use, many hip-hop artists have capitalized and collabed with the weed industry. Snoop has his G-Pen. Wiz Khalifa has his rolling papers. Some rappers even have their very own strains of weed. San Francisco rapper Berner has his "Girl Scout Cookies" strain. Flesh-N-Bone of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony created his own strain of weed in 2013, and months later, inked a distribution deal with a medical-marijuana facility in Michigan. Rappers Riff Raff and Lil Debbie have their own strains as well.
So HotNewHipHop figured that it wouldn't be 4/20 without honoring the hip-hop artists who not only celebrate cannabis everyday, but who also partnered up with the weed industry in order to spread the love to everyone.
So grab your Snoop Dogg G-Pen or your Wiz Khalifa rolling papers, and favorite strain, and let the celebration begin as HotNewHipHop takes a look at hip-hop's connection to the weed industry.
