Several decades ago, would you ever have guessed that we would be using marijuana-infused shampoo or using cannabis as a therapeutic medication for chemotherapy? While these might have sounded like crazy ideas back then, the prospect of a cannabis market has skyrocketed into a budding multi-billion dollar industry that is fueled by emerging marijuana billionaire tycoons (as well as major companies like Pepsi, which may be entering the scene soon enough). Overall, one of the smallest but most influential streams of supports can be found in the entertainment and music industry. We are all familiar with recent pro-cannabis messages from Snoop Dogg and Kristen Bell, but (in a strange twist) boxer Mike Tyson has also joined the fray. Now, another celebrity has decided to jump on the cannabis bandwagon, as well. Here is a closer look at how rapper Fat Tony is showing his support for the little green herb.
For over ten years, the Nigerian-American rapper known as Fat Tony has risen as an underground icon in the music world, but his talents with words are not the only thing that has caught people’s attention. With ties to hip-hop, punk, and electronic music, Tony is also a show promoter and art agent and once hosted Super Deluxe’s Thrift Haul Show (now shut down) on YouTube. While he might not have been born in Houston, Texas, the rapper definitely calls this city his second home, as well as a string of other places he’s visited on the road (including Mexico City, where he hosts a hip-hop festival called “Function”).
At Home and On the Job
Overall, Fat Tony has announced that he smokes weed in the privacy of his home or while he is penning songs in the studio. However, he recently received attention from the cannabis community for the song “Legal Weed (McGregor Park), where he provides a more positive message about the little green plant than other artists in the past. Still, the artist has urged the public to exercise caution when using the drug. For Tony, abusing marijuana is foolish and reckless and has told people to respect the plant.
