What did I forget to do?

Bermuda-bred dancehall artist Collie Buddz drops his self-titled debut tomorrow, off the strength of his first single, “Come Around”. You know the song — “finally de erbs come arowwwnd!”

Though I wish dude the best of luck, it’s worth pointing that introducing one’s self to the masses with a weed anthem of such epic proportions as “Come Around” can be equivalent to digging one’s self a hole for self-burial. Sometimes, artists pigeonhole themselves by coming out with a weed-anthem-first-single, so when their next single strays from the topic, people are like, “What gives?” Other times, these artists are true-to-form as being weedheads, and pretty much have no memory and/or work ethic for putting out a quality second single (I’d consider Afroman a prime candidate for that). Peep the following examples of artists who have made classic songs about weed, and not much else. And, unless you’re just mean like that, let’s hope that Collie doesn’t follow in their footsteps.

Download: Afroman – “Because I Got High”

Download: Channel Live – “Mad Izm” featuring KRS-One

Download: The Luniz – “I Got 5 On It”

Download: The Luniz – “I Got 5 On It (Remix)” featuring Dru Down, Richie Rich, E-40, Shock G & Spice 1

[At least The Luniz had the foresight to make a massive remix to their hit. Collie Buddz is off to a good start in that regard, with a “Come Around” remix featuring Young Buck and Tony Yayo, and another remix featuring Paul Wall, B-Real, Shaggy, Aztec and Ray Cash.]

Download: Mista Grimm – “Indo Smoke”

Download: RBL Posse – “Don’t Give Me No Bammer Weed”

[And while we’re on the topic of forgotten rappers and marijuana — hold your head, Paperboy. Before there was ever a Diddy, there was the Ditty.] Sphere: Related Content
