Devin The Dude is one of those rappers who frequently gets put in the category of “stoner rappers”, even though he’s a much better songwriter and artist than that category suggests. Whilst this probably annoys some snotty-nosed music critics like me, the news that he’s releasing a film entitled The Highway, with a soundtrack including songs like “We Get High,” shows that Devin’s quite happy to embrace the role of smoker’s icon.
The visual for first single “We Get High” shows Devin and his crew Coughee Brothaz doing exactly that, smoking some particularly potent stuff then taking us on a silly, psychedelic road trip through the film, complete with something called an iPot. Whilst I doubt it’ll be the greatest film, the Dude seems to be having more fun than today’s generation of “stoner rappers” and he glides through his intricate raps with ease. Watch him and his crew road trippin’ below.
Whilst we don’t have a release date for the film yet, the soundtrack, which features appearances from UGK, 2 Chainz, Smoke DZA, Curren$y, David Banner and more, is out now.
