Pittsburgh rapper Wiz Khalifa recently detailed his typical morning routine and confessed to having a habitual smoking procedure upon hopping out of bed.
Detailing his daily wake up, Wiz admitted weed smoking is vital.
“I wake up like any old normal person, open my eyes and then I roll over and smoke some weed,” Wiz said in an interview. “It’s either already rolled, or I roll it, or I put it in the bong and just like anybody else does, put fire to it and smoke, and then I start my day. I usually eat some breakfast, make a couple phone calls, check some emails and then the wheels are moving. I am guilty of smoking before brushing. Honestly if you’re gonna smoke and then brush so you can get [the smell] out of there, instead of brushing then smoking and dirtying it back up.” (Champ Magazine)
Def Jam’s Redman talked about the role weed plays in his morning routine last June.
“This is how I get my head right,” Red said in an interview. “First of all, I can’t be woke up. If I [am awaken] by loud noise, my head ain’t right all day and I’m off, I can’t get no work in so I need my sleep. Once I wake up on my own, with some nice peace and quiet, I go to the bathroom, I take a leak, I brush my teeth and I hit the L. Always brush your teeth in the morning for those morning smokers that hit the L. Brush your teeth. The blunt’ll tastebetter. Don’t just get up with your sour mouth and put the blunt in your mouth and smoke. That is nasty. The blunt taste better when you brush your teeth…So I get my head right with the morning blunt. And after that, I have an afternoon blunt because I don’t smoke too much because I try to handle business in the day. Then later on, after six, I’m blowing it down. I get my head right all night. And then the shorty come get my other head right. Know what I’m talkin’ about? So we two heads getting right tonight.” (“Presice”)
Marijuana enthusiast Curren$y recently shared his perspective on so-called “weed rappers.”
“I think the term ‘weed rapper’ is wack,” Curren$y said in an interview. “I think it was created by rappers who are trying to use weed as a subject matter that will get them put on in the game, in a sense. If you remember in CB4 how that group had to make themselves be gangstas just to get on. So now weed rappers are people who are faking to be high all the time so that they could get on and be popular and rap. They’re not high, they don’t even know good weed. They’re probably just smoking regular, killin’ themselves but it’s just like, ‘All I do is rap about being high, so I can catch the wave like Spitta and ‘em.’ It’s bullsh–. I don’t just f–kin’ talk about weed so I know it’s that bullsh–.” (RapFix)
When asked about the “weed rapper” stereotype, Harlem’s Smoke DZA recently gave SOHH his input on the term.
“It definitely affect me because ain’t none of us weed heads,” Smoke DZA told SOHH. “None of us are Afroman. We’re not just putting out weed records and going about our days. We’re the new baby boomers. We doing that and we’re doing lifestyle raps. That’s our category. ‘Lifestyle Raps.’ We’re rapping about our lives. It has nothing to do with being ‘weed rappers’ because even The Notorious B.I.G. rapped about weed and nobody called him a weed rapper. Jay-Z spoke about coke, but nobody ever called him the ‘cocaine rapper’. So I don’t think we should get that title because it’s unfair to us and our craft. We put a lot of work into our craft.” (SOHH)
