"OOOUU" by Young M.A
Favorite Line of the Song: " The loud got me movin slo-mo.” Young M.A, a female rapper from Brooklyn, recently released this song in 2016. Although this sounds like a male rapper, it in fact is a woman representing the push towards "female boss ladies" especially in the LGBT community. This song skyrocketed her career and put her "0-100 real quick.”It inspires me as an entrepreneur to keep pushing and let no one get in the way. This song has a mellow bop to it everyone can bump to. When in a smoking sesh and someone says "OOOUU" everyone who knows the song can relate back and most likely turn it on. My favorite line makes me feel on the same page as Young M.A. because when I am smoking a strain that is so intense, I am defiantly in a slower pace...a slower state of mind. I have smoked to this song with people in NYC, Seattle, Portland and Denver -- all of whom are familiar with the "OOOUU.”
“Young, Wild & Free” by Wiz Khalifa & Snoop Dogg feat. Bruno Mars
Favorite Line of the Song: "So what we get drunk? So what we smoke weed? We’re just having fun We don’t care who sees So what we go out? That’s how it's supposed to be. Living young and wild and free." This song is a song to live by, creating our happiness -- drama free and good vibes is the only world we all want to live in. It’s a tune sung by two cannabis icons simply stating “What's wrong with smoking a little weed?” We all do it anyway, let's be social about it. "Roll one, smoke one, and we all just having fun." It can be as easy as that! As cannabis is becoming more socially accepted in society, this song seems more and more appropriate. Smoking or not smoking, when this song comes on we all feel a little free and in the moment. It would be one of my top songs to start the sesh with: " When I step right up, get my lighter so I can light up.”
“Pop That” by French Montana ft. Rick Ross, Drake, Lil Wayne
Favorite Line of the Song: "Smoke a spliff and then I vanish.” This is my FAVORITE song, smoking or not smoking! This song comes to mind as we spark, start the sesh and twerk our way until it’s out. Kind of like a can't stop won't stop type of song especially with their anthem: “Don't stop, pop that, don't stop.” Although slightly vulgar, I like to smoke sativas to it. I love to dance, so when this song comes on I feel like I smoke and vanish into dance mode with many memories of doing exactly that. This is on my playlist when I smoke and design. The beat travels way beyond the surface and lifts my mood for the day. Being from New York City, there is something about having a tune like this in your headphones when walking through thousands of people and getting lost in your own world.
Gotta Say High by “Three 6 Mafia”
Favorite Line of the Song: "I gotta stay high, until I die.” This song is the definition of a hype song. The anthem of the song, to stay high all the time, is every stoner's dream. When this song comes on in a sesh, everyone with a blunt throws their hands up to make sure everyone’s on the same page. We all know "green gonna get lit up.” The name and chorus had to be changed to "Gotta Stay Fly" for the radio to prevent saying "High.” When this song comes on, it will always be “Gotta Stay High” for me. It gives you specific instructions when they say: "Roll that shit, light that shit, hit that shit, hold that shit, blow that shit out slow, then pass it to me bro.” Sounds like the ultimate sesh to me.
“Want To Get High” by Cypress Hill
Favorite Line of the Song: "Forward motion, Make you sway like the ocean, the herb is more than just a powerful potion, what's the commotion.” The first 45 seconds of this song says it all - lets get very high. This is a classic to listen to as people of multiple generations can sing along. It’s mellow tone has me wanting to light up an indica strain and enter a slo-mo mode. It's the type of song that sets the atmosphere in a room. Sometimes all I hear in this song is "I want to get high… so high" everything else is a blur and that's exactly what I do. The people I smoke with most of the time are in chill mode so this is a must to add to the mix.
