Chronic Jointz: The Hitz, Vol 1.

A lot of rap artists write songs about smoking marijuana. And Chronic Jointz compiles many of those songs, beginning with Tone-Loc's "Cheeba-Cheeba," originally released in 1987 at a time when, according to Finegold, "some rappers, like Grandmaster Flash & the Furious Five -- "White Lines (Don't Don't Do It)" -- were protesting the use of drugs." However, as Finegold notably points out, "Of course, rap aficionados know pot's not a drug, so as time passed, and people became more educated, attitudes like Loc's became the norm." And indeed they did, as the following songs no doubt illustrate.

  1. " Cheeba-Cheeba" Tone-Loc

  2. "Hits from the Bong" Cypress Hill

  3. "Pack the Pipe" Pharcyde

  4. "I Got 5 on It" Luniz

  5. "Blaze It" Legit

  6. "Blast Off (Intro)" Kurupt

  7. "Buddah Lovaz" Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

  8. "Sticky Now" St. Lunatics

  9. "I'm So Hi" Three 6 Mafia

  10. "Smoke Out" Trick Daddy

  11. "I Can't Wake Up" KRS-ONE

  12. "High as Hell" Keith Murray

  13. "Half Baked" Norega

  14. "Chronic Keeping" Xzibit
