Singled Out: Bizzythowed


Bizzythowed just released his new Blank Check Vol 2 EP and to celebrate we asked him to tell us about the song "Smoking Weed". Here is the story:

Miami 2011 in a rehearsal space known as the "Cave" that was located behind our bass player Oscar's sisters house. A shack that had everything a band needed in it to get really good and also everything that a band needed to get really stoned as well. Oscar is a Cuban guy with a Cuban/Irish blended family. He smokes pot and cigs and drinks whiskey great guy. Rhody was my drummer, A Jamaican guy who loved hard core and metal. These guys were what was left from my previous band Purple Popcorn. We started jamming that summer of 2011 in a attempt to make something different and more "Punk" that what we were doing before which was more pop rock/rap oriented although towards the end of PP we had def started going more towards hard rock and metal. The song was originally called "Push" and it was a riff i came up with that we started jamming. I decided to record it before i left Miami and went towards LA so I did a rough version with my old mates. I moved to LA and I meant to finish the project but i ended up meeting The Weeknd and I started writing and traveling with him and four years went by. I would work on the project here and there between breaks and finally last summer I was able to finish the song with lyrics and i re recorded it and renamed it Smoking Weed. In the four years smoking is something i had always done since high school growing up in Houston. But after traveling to Cali and Amsterdam and all over to vape lounges in Toronto to Coffee shops in Amsterdam and dispensaries in LA. It inspired my to write about the revolution happening and to tell people to celebrate and get on board with the times. Ive been arrested for weed before and it sucked so I'm glad i can enjoy and i just wanted to share that with my fans and fellow smokers. The second verse is a story about me and "Mary" who I'm referring to as a female but I'm really referring to "Mary Jane" a nickname for marijuana. So just like a stoner a riff i make from smoking in Miami in 2011 became a actual song in 2016.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
