Drug Music (w/new links)

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.

Drugs are bad:
1)40 0z. for breakfast: blackalicious

8)smokin amp: gangsta nip
9)my fault: eminem
10)stay out of bars: the genius
11)drink away the pain: mobb deep
12)ballad of worms:cage

Drugs are good:
1)alcoholic vibes: lord seer
2)puffin on blunts and drinkin on tanqueray: dr. dre and friends
3)drink at the bar: YZ
4)B-boys on acid: justin warfield
5)ride the white horse: dub-l featuring jemini the gifted one

    The new Ill Bill song is about his uncle shooting heroin.
    In general, the Psycho+Logical- crew is all about drugs, even the heavy stuff. And porn.

    The Psycho Realm…. lots of drug songs and heroin use but especially 'Confessions of a drug addict' off of their first album 'The psycho realm'

    "The eye of the needle cries out to the dark side"

    can't do a blog on drug music without listing any redman tracks without and cypress hill tracks and I agree with Appy Flanagan gotta have the alkaholiks- their name alone should earn them at least an honorable mention, LOL!

  9. Blockhead says:

    i omitted all strictly weed based songs. that's why there's no cypress hill and redman. and there is one liks song on there.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Atmosphere's "The Abusing of the Rib" is centered around heroin use as a metaphor.
