M.i – Stoned (Video)

blame it on Shake April 13, 2012

It’s well known that I’m far from the “writing” dopeboy and my words usually lean towards the shortened side so I’ma let Beware over at TSS speak on this one.

Unless you’re married to Amber Rose, making a song about how much weed you smoke isn’t really helping your cause these days. However, despite the overabundance of odes to herb and the hesitation you might have going into this video from M.I. for his blatantly-named “Stoned,” you’re in for a treat with the goods this up & coming Austin MC delivers. The lead single from his recently-released project The Coldplay Sessions finds it’s potency in M-Dot’s admittance his costly habit can be counterproductive, via an impeccable flow that glides over a well-flipped sample of the UK super-group’s song, “Don’t Panic.” Couple that with an easy-going, catchy chorus and you’ve got a song worth your four minutes.

If you like what you hear, head on over to DJBooth to grab his latest project, The Coldplay Sessions.
