IP is Ill smokes weed. Like, a lot of weed. It's kind of his thing.
Known for his work as one-half of local hip-hop duo, Numbers, IP has never been shy about his toking, but don't get it twisted; he's not just some slacker pothead. (No offense to those of you out there -- you guys keep being you.)
Right now, IP is waist-deep in tracking his first solo project in five years, recently releasing a video for the single, "Stressin'." "Somebody asked me the other day, 'Why do you smoke so much,'" he says on the track. "So I sat down and I wrote this song."
Throughout the record, IP talks about the trials of everyday life, the pressure of supporting his family and struggling to make it in the rap game while dealing with shady promoters. "I also talk about the reasons that I smoke and I express the different ways I'm thinking when I do smoke," IP says.
