In celebration of International Weed Day, more popularly known as 4/20, Blvk H3ro presents THC (The Herb Connoisseur), a musical project dedicated to the Holy Herb.
“It is a joy to share THC with my brethren in these times of Gideon,” says Blvk H3ro, “this project aims to satisfy the craving for upliftment and higher meds at this moment in our story”.
This eclectic collection of next-generation Jamaican music is released one year after the decriminalization of Ganja in Jamaica, but after decades of oppression for those defiant of the regime.
“THC will give you a different vibration and make you look at Herb differently,” he says, “too many people have suffered under the system and I forward in this time to bring a lickle joy, inspiration and creativity, so mek we bussweh!”
The Weedp has original compositions by Blvk H3ro and productions by The Grei Show, BoomDraw & Kone, JLL and Greatest. The project also features Lord Leno (son of Burro Banton). Majority of the project was recorded at Equiknoxx studios and additional mixing and mastering done by Shotta Biggs & Kris-Karz
Blvk H3ro now joins the ranks of his idols Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Sizzla Kalonji, and their diverse musical influences can be felt throughout the WeedP.
The THC Project will be officially released at Nanook, 20 Burlington Avenue, on April 20 (4/20) along with the exciting music video for ‘Herb’.
When it comes to the herbs, it’s all about the right specimen and today Chronixx and Jahkime speak on it in their visual for “Perfect Tree“. Directed by AllEyesOnIt, we get a little lecture from the “Odd Ras” then Jahkime joins him later to kick off lyrics over an old school Hip Hop production (Blackstar x Common’s “Respiration”). Off the “Roots and Chalice” Mixtape it’s time to roll one up, check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
Today’s Oldies Sunday selection is dedicated to the hustlers. We go back to the early 80’s with the late Sugar Minott. Titled “Herbman Hustling” and produced by Sly & Robbie for the Taxi Records in 1984. The song speaks on the day to day experiences of the Marijuana merchant including dealing with the law, and sourcing the best product. Minott’s delivery in this single puts the listener in a first person perspective (and possibly catch a contact high) over the smooth Sly & Robbie production.
It’s all about the herbs today with NRG a.k.a. Rseenal Di Artillery, Makonnen and Iyah Gift in their new visual. Titled “What Kinda Herbs“. and directed by Yosef Imagination, we see the artists feature the herbs in various processes from being reaped on a farm, to being packaged, to being distributed. They also speak on its uses and benefits and promotes that it should be free for everyone to use in everyday life. Great visual, and lovers of the herb can see it in all its glory here. Free di weed!
