The chances are high that one of the last few rap songs you listened to mentioned marijuana at least once. That’s because, when taking a look at the top music genres of the last three decades, rap artists have been on the forefront of declaring their love of grass (even though country singers actually mention marijuana more often).

From hits by Wiz Khalifa to Danny Brown, these artists are unapologetic about their passion for ganga. Check out the list above, and let us know about your favorites in the comments.
