In a troll-tastic post listing the “Top 25 Worst Rappers of All-Time”, GQ magazine listed “weed carriers” at #17. Clearly fans of the site, it’s unfortunate that they missed the subtle nuances involved here by declaring that all weed holders can’t rap. Considering that virtually every MC ever to touch a microphone handled another man’s baggage at some point in his career, this is clearly wrong. Nevertheless, any mention of weed carrying in the mainstream media is always appreciated…

The results are in for the long-awaited 2013 Weed Carrier Awards, and there have been a few upsets as far as the staff here are concerned. Nevertheless, the people have spoken in the most important democratic process that will occur this year, and most likely your lifetime. Internets, here are the winners of the 2013 Weed Carrier Awards.

This is huge. Following our in-depth Weed Carrier Report on Lil’ Wayne’s YMCMB crew, it seems that he has finally taken the plunge and followed in the footsteps of the legendary Eazy-E by recruiting the Holy Grail of Weed Carriers – a white chick. While Eazy had Tarrie B on deck, who was basically a poor man’s rapping Madonna who I suspect was somehow responsible for Eric catching the bug, Paris offers the advantage of having her own cash flow and the option to pass off any pot to her chauffeur if she get’s pinched.

Seven years after the 1st Annual Weed Carrier Awards in 2006, we’re back with all new categories that prove that the art of weed carrying is deeper than rap. A lot has changed since the first awards – the Holy Trinity of Weed Carriers (Consequence, Memphis Bleek and Spliff Star) have all effectively ended their reigns as MVP WC’s. New crews have emerged, new Weed Owners have risen to power and a whole new generation of young tree transporters are out on these streets, doing bodega runs, picking up crates of codine and cleaning out bongs.

Weed carrying, of course, is a time-honored tradition that dates back to the beginning of recorded history, so it’s only right the 2nd Annual Weed Carrier Awards recognize the finest smoke stashers in the fields of sports (the NBA), comic books, television, film and animation. Now is your chance to make your voice heard and honor the fine work of these hard-working chronic carriers in the world’s only official Weed Carrier Awards. Go in!

How To Carry For Multiple Weed Owners

Posted: 1st May 2013 by Robbie in Baggage Handlers

A handful of weed carriers have mastered the art of multi-tasking. Here are three examples:

Red Cafe

Originally a member of a group called Da Franchise, who had a deal with Violator Records that went nowhere, Red Cafe then embarked on a staggering run of fruitless record labels deals which quickly evolved into a string of weed carrying positions of epic proportions. He signed to Arista in 2003 with only a couple of singles released to show for it, before he was recruited to carry chronic for LA rapper Mack 10 and was rewarded with a deal on Hoo-Bangin’ Records/Capitol in 2005. Only a year later he began stashing for Akon, which saw him join the Konvict Muzik/Universal roster in 2006 before the imprint shifted to Interscope in 2007, although this was a mere technicality since he still failed to drop an official album. In desperation, he made ‘The Co-Op’ mixtape with DJ Envy and was able to get it issued via KOCH Records, who literally put out anything with beats and rhymes on it, regardless of the quality.

Fast forward to 2013, and Red Cafe is apparently “signed to Konvict Muzik, Bad Boy Records and Ciroc Entertainment and the Desert Storm label”, which effectively means he is committed to handling the baggage of Akon, Diddy and DJ Clue. No wonder he doesn’t have time to drop an album! His debut LP, ‘ShakeDown’, is listed as having a 2013 release date but I’ll believe it when I see it since he’s managed to avoid doing so for the past ten years.

Not everyone enjoys the glory of being recognized for their hard work in the field of tree transporting. Word on these internets streets is that Purple City member Shiest Bubz has taken offence at having his crew labeled as the “lowliest weed-carriers” and “third-tier baggage handlers” in this week’s 25 Greatest Harlem Rap Songs list over at Complex. The moral of the story? Never use the term “lowliest” in connection to weed holders. Just because they carry smoke doesn’t mean they don’t have feelings!

It appears that everyone connected to “troubled” R&B Chris Brown seems to get the brakes beaten off them on a regular basis. In this latest incident, Kevin “K-Mac” McCall, who featured on “Deuces” in 2011 and has a single featuring GOOD Music weed holder Big Sean had his bluff called when he threatened some dude’s in the audience for booing him and invited them to step to him. Which they did.

Here’s the footage.

Weed Carrier Report: Pro Era

Rap wunderkind Joey Bada$$ (aka Lizard King aka Og Swank) is young, but he’s no dummy. He understands the importance of developing a diverse Weed Carrier portfolio as soon as possible, and with his Senior WC Consultant/Conciliare CJ Fly on deck, they seem to be running a pretty tight ship, employing a tactic where they provide virtually zero information about their “artists” on their official website, other than some dumb quote. Who needs a bio when you have Twitter, right? Let’s take a look at some of the key players in this Weed Carrier Network known only as Pro Era

We’ve got to admit it, under the close mentor ship of current Weed Owner King Birdman, Lil’ Wayne has been able to assemble a diverse team of loyal and largely under-age Weed Carriers. Since Weezy still carries for Baby, naturally the entire YMCMB roster can be called on to transport, hold or stash whatever it is that Birdman requires, which makes him the closest thing in this modern era to the RZA in terms of Weed Ownership. Love him or hate him, Lil’ Tunechi has grown up to be a helluva Weed Owner, as the following study can attest to.

Since Wiz Khalifa abandoned his backpack to become the poster-child for Cheech and Chong Rap, his Taylor Gang has become hip-hop’s answer to The Grateful Dead. When every single thing you rap about it revolves around weed, it’s extra important to have a solid team of kush carriers to keep that $10,000 worth of monthly loud safe. It took Wiz a while to catch on to the whole concept of being Weed Owner, as he was bagged back in 2010 for a tour bus full of the stuff in North Carolina and had to pay $300,000 in bail while his nine weed carriers were also locked-up, while he was again nabbed in Nashville last year after stinking up the Holiday Inn. Clearly, the Wiz has a lot to learn about being a Weed Owner. We’re assuming that Wiz’s forthcoming Converse line will feature a removable sole for stashing purposes.
