La is Seattle's answer to Wiz Khalifa. Not only does he burn more trees than a forest fire, he also typically has something thoughtful to say when he rhymes. In honor of today's high holiday, he released a special 4/20-inspired track named after everyone's favorite pot-infused dessert.
The cut is called "Weed Brownies," and it's an outtake from his forthcoming collaboration with local producer Jester. The pair have combined forces before, most notably on La's stellar SEALAB 2012. But where that record was defined by booming beats and La's signature fierce flow, "Weed Brownies" is as mellow as the name implies.
Spitting over a laid back hi-hat sputter and hazy keyboard riff, La starts off: "We ain't depressed about the weather at all/I bet the bums where I'm from smoke better than y'all/the Northwest grow the best, the whole world know that/ Now you fuckin' up the blunt let my girl roll that."
It builds from there, with all the weed-related wordplay one would expect from the city's most lyrically gifted pothead. Listen here:
La performs tonight at the Vera Project along with Chev, KnowMads, and Superfire.
