As we prepare for the Third (Sorta) Annual Weed Carrier Awards, it seems appropriate to open up the nominations so that no weed carrier champions are accidentally excluded. Please help us in honoring these loyal side kicks who dream of one day rising to the rank of Weed Owner like Jay-Z or Kanye West.
According to this highly scientific breakdown, as a ‘drug holder/blunt roller’ for an arena-level musical touring group, you can expect to clock $500 per week, plus the obvious benefits of a whole lotta weed and limitless hero sandwiches. It’s almost puts a tear in my eye to see the humble role of cheeba stasher finally getting the mainstream respect is so sorely deserves.
As amusing as it was to hear Combat Jack and Premium Pete ask Consequence how he felt about being named as the Greatest Weed Carrier of All-Time on this site, he seems to be a little confused about how it actually works. Carrying another man’s weed can be an internship if you go on to become a weed owner yourself. Good examples of this are Del The Funky Homosapian, we went from holding for his cousin Ice Cube to assembling his Heiroglyphics weed holding army. Similarly, Jay-Z held bags for Big Daddy Kane for a while before he built his Roc-A-Fella baggage handler network.
In his own words, Cons confirms his weed carrier status:
‘I’ve been involved in such big moments prolly except my own. I’ve been a part of the championship teams.’
The weed carrier is no myth, as proven by this on point presentation from Cris Carter and Warren Sapp. While the NFL attempted to distance themselves from this position, it’s pretty clear that such a denial is only for legal purposes. Thanks to WC OG Fitz for passing this important development on.
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. Read the rest of this entry »
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! Read the rest of this entry »
A handful of weed carriers have mastered the art of multi-tasking. Here are three examples:
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. Read the rest of this entry »
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!
