A stellar cast of artists light up Hi Grade Ganja Anthems 3, the third volume in the successful series that celebrates the virtues of marijuana, available from Greensleeves Records on November 2, 2010.
Its release on Election Day in the United States is no coincidence as Proposition 19 is up for vote in California, which if passed, would tax the sale of marijuana and regulate adult use in the state. Three other states are calling for similar measures this year and currently, marijuana is decriminalized and available for medical use in 15 states.
The 18-track compilation features top artists from reggae to rock, all with hit singles fueling the other ‘go-green’ movement. Ganja Anthems 3 is also an international affair with Collie Buddz on his breakout hit “Come Around” (Bermuda), to Busy Signal on “Spliff Tail” (Jamaica), Ziggi on “Ganja Smoke In The Air” (Netherlands), Gyptian on “Sensi”(Jamaica), Alborosie on “Real Story” (Italy), and Richie Spice on his smash “The Plane Land” (Jamaica), just to name a few.
California-based rock band Slightly Stoopid hops aboard the herbal hype for “No Cocaine” featuring Inner Circle. ‘The Fireman’ Capleton then turns up the heat for the “No Cocaine Remix,” which makes for a killer iTunes bonus track, releasing digitally and also on 7-inch. Greensleeves Records partners with record label Controlled Substance Sound Labs to promote this new hit remix.
The Hi Grade Ganja Anthems 3 experience continues with a limited edition digi-pak showcasing original art by Tony McDermott.
