Hip-hop fans from the mid-1990s who caught the new trailer for Jordan Peele's upcoming horror flick Us on Christmas Day (Dec. 25) probably felt a wave of nostalgia wash over when they heard the Luniz classic "I Got 5 On It" playing in the opening sequence.
The creepy teaser for the film -- Peele's follow-up to his Oscar-winning Get Out -- begins with an African-American family cruising down a desolate road with "I Got 5 On It" blasting through the car stereo. "That's a classic right there," the father tells his smiling wife, bumping his head along to the that samples Club Nouveau's 1987 jam "Why You Treat Me So Bad." The couple's confused young son in the back seat, meanwhile, asks his parents about the track's drug-referencing lyrics.
It's a scene that probably hits home with many thirty-something parents who grew up listening to "I Got 5 On It" during their teenage years. It's arguably the most notable weed song ever, and is based on a simple rule: everyone who pitches in gets to indulge. "I got five on it/ Grab your 40, let's get keyed/ I got five on it/ Mess' wit that indo weed," goes the song's chorus.
