258: “Budsmokers Only” by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony

Thanks GOD none of us wore our hair the same way!!Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are a breath of fresh Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, are they not? You ‘memba them?

If Eazy-E had made sweet reproductive love to Boyz II Men, the Boyz would have calved the Bone Thugs, with long, noodling cries of labor.

“Budsmokers Only” (1995) is my favorite tune by Bone Thugs, due to its catchy hook and despite its farcically offensive lyrics promoting the recreational use of marijuana, which is a strong theme with the BT’s. I enjoy this song primarily as a tool to work up a black sweat, and secondarily as an anthropological keyhole yielding insight into the bone thug community.

There IS the possibility of a tertiary usage of this song: smoking a jazz cigarette and dancing like a jello ninja to it. But I will not promote such behavior here.

To best appreciate it, listen to this song while transcendentally meditating. Enjoy.
