Every song, from "Happy Birthday Motherfucker Smoke Weed" to "Wanna Wanna" is tied to cannabis. Even his bumping hit "Shaka Shake" (chorus: "Lemme see you shake-a shake that booty") might sound like sex-charged ogling, à la "Blurred Lines," but our rapper explains the tune actually is about leftover dimebag crumbs, known in stoner lingo as "shake."
Don't believe the hype that weed makes you stupid and lazy. For all his goofing around, Supa Joint is one sharp tack and does not waste time. His two albums, Rollin Stoned and Smokin' Weed with Volkom & Hot Rock were finished quickly, the latter done in less than 12 hours. But that isn't to say the production was rushed; it's just ambitious.
"I don't fuck around, because I don't got time to. The way I work, once I get locked in something, I gotta stay with it until it's done," Supa Joint tells me while we're puffing on some Cherry Bomb after the show. "If we don't grab the eyes immediately, people gonna look away. It's all on the fucking phone for most of society at this point."
It's been said some people just want to see the world burn — others, like Supa Joint, just want to see the world blaze.
