Stay trippy.

Drugs and rap have been pretty synonymous since the 90s, but recently there's been an influx of rappers talkin' about harder drugs than the chronic. Chance the Rapper's Acid Rap tape was perhaps the most illicit example of an ongoing trend that's taking place amongst the newer artists. The Underachievers, Mac Miller, Earl Sweatshirt, and even A$AP Rocky, whose hit "L$D" is just the latest in a lineage of rap tracks that allude to a wild night with the drug most commonly associated with the hippie generation, are a few artists who have taken a trip down the rabbit hole. 

Because psychedelics and hip hop haven't always been closely tied, it's interested to see multiple references pop up in recent history. Here are a selection of tracks that demonstrate the link.
