Five Rappers With Their Own Weed Strains

There’s plenty of ways to spend your money when you become a massive global star. There’s the inevitable routes of mineral water, alcohol and of course property investments to plough your millions into. But those didn’t appeal to these five rappers who invested their hard earned in the legal marijuana business.

Freddie Gibbs

Talking recently to the Smokebox, the Indiana rapper spoke of his plans to bust into the weed business with his own strain called Freddie Kane OG. Freddie Gibbs has a history of being involved in the drug business and it looks as if he hasn’t just phoned it in with his own brand of weed. The 33 year old worked closely with Loompa Farms in California, where they grew and cultivated the product before selling it. Gibbs’ plans went beyond the small scale operation; he has detailed plans to set up his own business in California in the near future.

Wiz Khalifa

The See You Again rapper has had a long history with marijuana, from the release of his mixtape Kush and Orange Juice, to his 2011 debut studio album titled Rolling Papers and beyond. Almost everything he’s released has been weed related, in fact. His strain is called Khalifa Kush, but is currently unavailable to the public.


The rapper and former executive Vice President of Death Row Records has apparently cultivated one of the most potent strains around. Called Moonrock, Kurupt’s strain combines hash oil with kief, making it extra heady. Namechecked as one of Kendrick Lamar’s top three favourite rappers, Kurupt can now proudly also lay claim to being the supplier of one of the strongest strains of marijuana in the world.


The Cypress Hill main man has long since been connected to weed. The 90’s rap icon has had his own strain for years now, but its popularity has brought him deeper into the weed business, and he now runs his own dispensary in California, affectionately titled Dr Green Thumb, after the 1998 Cypress Hill track of the same name. B-Real is now near the top of the legal marijuana business, with his strain almost winning the prestigious Cannabis Cup last year.

Snoop Dogg

Who else but the king of weed himself? Snoop Dogg is rarely seen without a joint lodged in his mouth and a thick cloud of smoke around him. Arguably the rapper brought marijuana into the mainstream focus with his features on Dr Dre’s extraordinary solo debut The Chronic in 1992, where the smooth beats of G-Funk was mixed with anecdotes about gangster life and weed. His debut album Doggystyle was released just a year later and since then he has remained at the forefront of the rap world. The godfather of all things weed related, his own strain is called Snoop Dogg OG and is a highly popular one, even though the man himself may be contributing to most of the sales of it.
