Whether sparking up the reefer or taking it easy this 4/20, you’re always welcome in Notion’s blunt rotation. Here are 10 stoner anthems for every occasion.

‘Nuthin’ But A “G” Thang’ by Dr, Dre, Snoop Dogg

This might well be the ultimate 4/20 tune. Imagine, riding around on the backseat of Dr Dre’s Cadilac with Snoop Dogg, passing around a spliff and basking in the West Coast sun. ‘Nuthin’ But A “G” Thang’ isn’t just a song, it’s a whole vibe.

‘So High’ by Wiz Khalifa, Ghost Loft

One of hip-hop’s biggest smokers, Wiz Khalifa’s ties to the reefer are ubiquitous. Running Khalifa Kush, ‘The world’s premier weed brand’, and creating the Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Farm video game are just a couple of cannabis-laced side hustles he’s known for, but it’s in songs like ‘So High’ where we’re truly reminded of his stoner tendencies.

‘How High’ by Redman, Method Man

In Jesse Dylan’s classic stoner comedy, How High, Redman and Method Man prove their perfect synergy both on screen and on recording. Filling the minds of frazzled folk for over two decades, the film and its soundtrack have garnered a cult status that doesn’t look like shifting anytime soon.

‘Addicted’ by Amy Winehouse

“Tell your boyfriend, next time he's around // To buy his own weed and don't wear my shit down”, sings Amy Winehouse on ‘Addicted’, using marijuana as a coping mechanism for the emptiness of her single life. If you fancy a cry this 4/20, the Camden native has you covered.

‘Marijuana’ by Kid Cudi

Kid Cudi’s had a complex relationship with weed. Before blowing his mind out on the stuff, he’d often reference the substance’s healing powers on songs like ‘Marijuana’, but in 2021 he took to Tumblr to tell everyone his trips to Amsterdam were over. He has smoked since, so maybe the moral of the story is to do things in moderation.

‘Pass da Blunt’ by Missy Elliott, Timbaland

Missy Elliott champions a simple message on this standout cut from her iconic album, Supa Dupa Fly. “Pass da blunt on the left-hand side,”, she sings on the hook, raising the question of who’s in her immediate joint rotation? Timbaland? Probably. Nicki Minaj? Probably not.

‘Stay High’ by Three 6 Mafia

One of the best groups from the bling era of rap, Three 6 Mafia’s legacy still lives on today. On their hit single, ‘Stay High’ the Tennessee Collective roll out the red carpet for their ghetto rhymes, as Juicy J professes, “Breaking down the good green, rolling the blunt,” while everyone sings “I gotta stay High-y-y-y, y-y, y-y, y // 'Til I die-ie-ie-ie, ie-ie, ie-ie, ie” on the chorus.

‘Weedman’ by Nines, Lylo Gold

Nines’ love affair with weed is no secret. In 2021, the chart-topping rapper was jailed for importing a whopping 28kg of cannabis into the UK. On ‘Weedman’, he references the incident while confessing his love for the drug, and how he “could fly off a cliff when I light up this spliff".

‘Spliff in the Morning’ by Lord Apex

Lord Apex’s lo-fi jam ‘Spliff in the Morning’ chronicles the act of kicking back, rolling your first joint of the day and basking in the reefra’s healing powers. The west Londoner takes to KOKO tomorrow, performing at the iconic venue on a day synonymous with his stoner discography.

‘Paranoid’ by Black Sabbath

Any wonder as to what was making Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath ‘Paranoid’ when they released their legendary second album? The heavy metal stoners have written plenty of love letters to marijuana, on singles like ‘Sweet Leaf’, but this track serves as a timely reminder to not take things too far this 4/20.
