Album: N/A
Producer: N/AAlthough Cab Calloway wore white tuxedos and led a big band, don't get it twisted like an L—he was still down with the “Reefer Man.” Hanging hard on the streets of Harlem, as documented in Mezz Mezzrow's classic autobiography Really the Blues, the “Reefer Man” was all around the hood selling loose joints from the shadows of crumbling tenements and inside noted jazz clubs. “He smokes a reefer, he gets high, then flies to the sky,” Calloway wailed over the swinging music.
