Hip hop has had classifications for the different types of rappers for several years. While most rappers do smoke marijuana, there are several rappers who rap about smoking, constantly. Curren$y is one of those rappers. These rappers are classified as "weed rappers."
Wiz Khalifa is currently the biggest "weed rapper" in the hip hop game, doing work with Snoop Dogg and other big names. Despite being classified as a "weed rapper," Curren$y thinks the term is wack, within itself.
Curren$y said the term gives hip hop a bad name. Comparing it to the "gangsta rapper" influx a few years ago, Curren$y feels rappers will feel obligated to pretend to be high all the time for deals. When rappers have to pretend, it takes away from the art of the game.
