I was actually very excited to cover this event for a few reasons. Mainly because I’d never officially celebrated the “national cannabis culture consumption” holiday, but I’m always thrilled to see my favorite local artists perform AND Offbeat is my favorite hangout spot here in town. Win times three!
The listening session featured performances by Dave the Rapper, T Lo Da Champ, Quavius Black and more. There was also a preview of Sativa Symphonics 2 and plenty of weed, edibles and snacks to go around.
Sativa Symphonics 2 is a compilation of tracks featuring Mississippi’s hottest, rising talent. “We wanted to help local artists that people have probably never heard of by giving them a chance to have their music on a tape with other artists,” says Will, one half of The Hood Hippie. “This year we wanted it to be a listening experience so we decided to throw a party along with the release on 4/20.”
