The 50 Best Weed Songs

34. Outkast "Crumblin' Erb" (1994)

Album: Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik
Producer: Organized Noize/Andre 3000/Big BoiSigned by L.A. Reid and Babyface to LaFace Records—the label that was home to both TLC and Toni Braxton—the dynamic duo of Andre 3000 and Big Boi came out the gate hard and funky on their debut as Outkast. Produced by the smoked-out trio that comprised Organized Noize, the hotness of Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik remains undisputed.

Like Super Fly meeting up with Shaft to share a blunt, these country boys were all about phat sacks, mack daddy tracks and gleaming Cadillacs. The bass heavy soulful track “Crumblin' Erb” samples an Isaac Hayes' Blaxploitation beat (the 1974 instrumental “Joe Bell” from the movie Three Tough Guys) while preaching to the converted about the pleasures of escaping “this crazy world” by simply chilling out and crumbing herb.
