All (in)Hail Her Highness…MC FLOW!
Cannabis is legal in California and rapper MC FLOW has made it the focus of her latest release, a five-song EP titled HER HIGHNESS. The album covers everything from how to shop for legal weed (Welcome to the Dispensary) to racial/social issues associated with cannabis (Free). Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, JASON MRAZ, joins Flow on Oh Charlotte, the true story of pediatric cannabis patient, CHARLOTTE FIGI. Highlights also include a cameo by TORII WOLF (Flow Riot/DJ Premier) on the EP’s opening track, Morning Noon Night.
Flow is no stranger to the cannabis scene. As seen on Huffington Post, High Times, Celeb Stoner, Mashable, and more, she’s been lighting up the internet with her weed-infused raps and laid-back, SoCal vibe for some time. This January, when recreational pot became legal in California, Flow released the video for Her Highness’ first single, Welcome to the Dispensary -- a musical, behind-the-scenes tour of her favorite San Diego dispensary, URBN LEAF.
“For me, the music and the activism are combined,” says Flow. “It’s about spreading the word of this powerful plant and helping people un-learn some of the lies of they’ve been taught about cannabis. We are living through the greatest opioid epidemic our nation has ever seen, meanwhile we are outlawing a natural medicine that has been used safely and effectively for centuries. It’s obvious that something needs to change.”
