while to topic of weed has been thoroughly covered in hip hop, the other drugs often get looked over. be it a positive view of them or a negative take, drugs like mushrooms, acid, coke , pcp, ecstasy, and of course alcohol have all had their shine in hip hop . so here are two mixes. one shows the good side and the other shows the bad side. admittedly, the line does get blurry on a few of these but you get the idea.
oh, and on a side note, i was searching for songs about heroin use but , apparently, rappers not named B.G. don’t do it…or at least they don’t discuss it. any one who knows of hip hop songs regaling in heroin use, please point me in the right direction.
