Happy, 4/20: The Toppa Top 20 Reggae Weed Anthems

Words by Jesse Serwer—

Carlton Livingston 1

Sure, hip-hop has The Chronic, “I Got 5 On It,” and Meth and Red’s entire catalog, but when it comes to weed-smoking anthems, reggae is king. With literally tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of reggae weed songs to choose from, we selected some of our favorites and tapped the artist behind one of ‘em, Carlton “100 Weight of Collie Weed” Livingston, to count down the best of the best. Watch parts one and two of our Toppa Top 20 Reggae Weed Anthems countdown below. And if you’re not all smoked out after that, check our Top 10 of reggae’s most slept-on weed anthems.

Sorry Snoop, we’re still riding with Bunny Wailer. Today marks the 67th earthstrong of the last remaining member of the Wailers trinity, so it’s only right to share some footage of Neville O’Riley Livingston’s performances. First up is a full 1986 concert at New York’s Madison Square Garden, which was sold commercially by Shanachie Records as Bunny Wailer In Concert. The show begins with a larger-than-life, fire-and-brimstone introduction, as “the musical messiah” before moving into a performance including nearly the entire Blackheart Man album. ” The show marked a “comeback” of sorts as, according to the video description, Bunny had not been seen abroad in over 10 years (though it seems he had done one show immediately prior to this one in Long Beach, California).

Visual Vibration: Bob Marley x Shepard Fairey

Words by Natalie Weiner—bob-marley-shepard-fairey

Bob Marley’s image has become almost as important a part of his legacy as his music—both are ubiquitous worldwide, and accordingly represent many people’s first exposure to Jamaican music and culture. Now, Bob Marley: Giant, an exhibit currently at the Known Gallery in L.A., aims to shed new light on the face that’s inspired so much more than just countless red, yellow, and green t-shirts.

LargeUp regulars may know DJ Rampage as a purveyor of fine reggae mixtapes and selector on our radio program The LargeUp Sessions, but our bredrin has been holding down Lauryn Hill as her tour DJ for the nearly five years. With Lauryn gearing up to release her first new studio album in over a decade and a half, Letters to Exile, Rampage has been making some high-profile appearances alongside Ms. Hill, including her first televised performance in three years Friday night on David Letterman.
