The "Smoke'em if You Got'em" cover story features two people who know a lot about marijuana, rapper Wiz Khalifa and actor Danny McBride. In this interview, Wiz and Danny talk about their upcoming projects, how becoming more recognizable has affected them and of course, marijuana.

McBride, best known for his role as Kenny Powers in HBO's Eastbound & Down, is set to star alongside Natalie Portman and James Franco in his first big-budget movie, Your Highness, out April 8. McBride also co-wrote the movie. In Your Highness, McBride plays a "wizard's weed" smoking prince on a quest to rescue his brother's fiancée and save his kingdom. Wiz, who gained a cult following when his No. 1 hit, "Black and Yellow" was chosen as the anthem of the Pittsburgh Steelers during the NFL playoffs this year, is about to make his major-label debut on March 29 with Rolling Papers.

Video: Akir - "Abandoned" (prod. Kasa Overall)

A while back I was working at a Salvation Army foster home in the Bronx teaching Hip-Hop classes. At first it was very awkward, as the only resource I had was my iPod, some computer speakers and a living room. The kids definitely did not take the class seriously and the attendance fluctuated quite a bit. But the more I got to learn my kids versus pushing my objective on them, the more they started to open up about their experiences and my class grew. I was amazed at their resilience and their ability to comprehend such adult situations. Many of the stories I heard concerning their families and why they arrived here (the foster home) were absolutely mind-blowing. And just as we were making progress, as told to me, some Salvation Army executive stole a huge amount of funding that was once available for this program and others. My kids faced new cutbacks everyday until eventually the homes closed. Many of my kids ran away, were placed in other programs or were sent back to their dysfunctional families. I wrote this song for them over a crazy Kasa Overall track.

R.I.P. DJ Megatron


From HipHopSpy:

DJ Megatron

Family members, friends and fans are mourning the murder of DJ Megatron, who was gunned down early Sunday morning on the streets of Staten Island.

The rising TV and radio star, whose given name was Corey McGriff, was shot in Clifton at about 2 a.m. and pronounced dead on the scene a short time later, police said.

The Staten Island resident had just moved to a new house and his girlfriend recently gave birth to his third child.

“Everybody is shocked,” said a close friend who asked not be identified. “He just had a new baby. He wasn’t feuding with anybody. Everybody liked him.”

His buddy said it was normal for Megatron to get back to Staten Island around 2 or 3 in the morning after working at a club or music event.

“I’m still shocked that somebody killed him,” he said. “I can’t even understand why. It could be somebody that he didn’t even know. At that time of the night people do all kinds of crazy things.”

“I can’t see it being a personal thing because I don’t know of anybody who had a personal issue with him,” he added. “But at the same time, when you start getting success you have people who don’t necessarily like that.”

A police source said detectives have thus far not been able to track down an eyewitness to the murder.

Keith Robinson, who identified himself as Megatron’s father-in-law, said his family was distraught.

“He was a good person,” Robinson said, visibly upset, “Everyone’s just shocked.”

The Staten Island performer was a regular on BET’s “106th and Park,” and worked on HOT 97 two years ago.

A friend who arrived at the scene at about 4 a.m. said she talked to him a few hours earlier.

“He just called me,” Lisa Torres said, “He asked me if I was going to [a friend's] party.”

She became inconsolable as the news sank in.

“He’s right there on the ground. I can’t believe this,” she screamed as she broke down in tears. “You’re lying, you’re lying! That’s not Megatron right there!”
