39. Luniz f/ Michael Marshall "I Got 5 On It" (1995)
Producer: Tone Capone
Album: Operation Stackola
Label: Noo Trybe
Based around a loop from fellow Bay Area group Club Nouveau (performing a cover version of a track from a previous incarnation named Timex Social Club), this ode to sharing a bag of ganja was a huge hit that rode off the popularity of weed smoking songs in the mid-90s. Producer Tone Capone added some triangle synth, peppered it with the inescapable "Get Down" sample from "Jungle Boogie," and laced the hook with a sing-a-long chorus that would deliver a stoner theme song for the ages.
