Reddit is once again responsible for unearthing a lost gem of Internet history. On Tuesday (April 16), a Redditor posted a minute-long clip of late rapper Tupac Shakur perched on set of bleachers talking through the basics of blunt rolling.
First, ditch the grinder, scissors, and razor blades. “Split it with your fingernails,” he says. “Keep it all natural.”
When you’ve got the bud where you want it: “you got to roll it, don’t just fold it,” he says. “That’s why we got sloppy blunts.”
Finally, less is more when closing: “You don’t want to drown it, just lick it.”
And there you have it. “We got us a blunt.”
Tupac, who was shot and killed in 1996, was an outspoken “anti-violence, pro-blunt” advocate who supported cannabis liberation through the lens of harm-reduction and civil rights. He discusses his stance on legalization in the interview below.
