The chart-topping rapper pens a foreword to 'The Reefer Revolution' package in the latest issue of Billboard.
When I was growing up, I was into any artist who mentioned weed a lot in their music: Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Dipset, Cypress Hill, Three 6 Mafia — the people who were really forward about it.
Back then, smoking weed was a thugged-out thing to do. It was underground and raw. But now, it’s not just a small community of hippies and growers who want legalization — it’s people across the board. More people are educated about it. It’s more of a culture.
Music has always played a huge part in that. As artists, we can use our platforms to make people feel more comfortable with things they may not know about. It’s a positive thing to be able to do.
