Music has been made in tribute to Women, cars, money, God, and even where you’re from over the years, but when a song is made about Marijuana, “It hits different“. There are many an anthem for Ganja, Weed, Mary Jane, and Herb, from some of world’s Connoisseurs of the plant. Recording Artist Zac Jone$ is one of those Connoisseurs, and he presents to us today, “The Weed Song“.
Produced by Iotosh (who has been having a respectable run of productions in the past couple years) and featuring fellow Weed Scholar Jesse Royal, Zac Jone$ shares his “high” experience when he connects with the good green. “I wrote this song at a time when I was busy doing a lot of things outside of music and I remember feeling really overwhelmed”, Zac shares. “Every night after work I’d sit outside in my garden and smoke and I’d feel good in that moment; like that was my escape. One of those nights I just wanted to put that feeling into song. I pulled up the beat from Io (Iotosh) and it all came together right there. I was saving it for the right feature, so when Jesse heard it a few months later and started writing his verse on the spot, I knew that was it. It was all organic so that was dope.” Accompanying the single is a dope Music Video directed by Jesse Suchomel, which finds Zac in various parts of Kingston enjoying the Weed with friends (anyone caught the Potential Kid, Tessellated, and Sheen cameos?). What’s your favourite Weed strain?
