Album: Just Tryin' ta Live
Producer: DJ Premier
Houston rapper Devin the Dude made a name for himself off sleepy and studiously druggy rap music years before "weed rap" entered the lexicon, and his ten-year run on Rap-A-Lot Records is full of underrated heat. "Doobie Ashtray" off 2002's Just Tryin' Ta Live is a laid back smoker's anthem with production from DJ Premier, who dials back his typical sample wizardry to let the funky sample loop here just ride.
