Foreign Intelligence Brief #408: Prince Ea On Smoking Weed With The US President

(via Laughing Squid) “Smoking Weed With the President is a conscious rap song and recently launched fundraising campaign by Richard Williams (aka Prince Ea) of Make Smart Cool that aims to bring awareness to the marijuana legalization issue. Funds raised in the campaign will go to making a ‘professional and educational music video’ of the song.” It’s still a tidy effort. It would probably have more traction if it was Will.i.am’s follow-up to “Yes We Can”, but that dude is probably busy being a hologram somewhere. Note that Harper hates hip hop and thinks marijuana was created by the devil on a Sunday, so don’t expect the powers to be convinced up here.
