11. No Cocaine - Alborosie

Originally from Italy, Alborosie is an ital-eating Rasta musician in Kingston who gets a lot of love from the little island. He's found his way onto this list twice, this first song about meeting crack heads in England and staying true to his natural roots. For those of you patois-challenged, here's the chorus: "No coca, no coca, no coca inna mi brain/No coca and nuh evro a cyan ingo mi vein/'Cos I love marijuana/'Cos man a real ganja farmer

10. Still Blazin' - Alborosie

Told you that dude was on here twice. The song parallels Alborosie's love of Jah with blazing on Jah herb. The remix of this song by Wiz Khalifa on his Kush and Orange Juice mixtape is also a stoney song worth checking out.

9. Smoke Two Joints - The Toyes/Sublime

They both have their great moments. The Toyes version is more of a slinky, funky reggae riddim' with a great analog sound and killer bass lines. The Sublime version (arguably more popular) samples the movie Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, Easy E's "No More ?'s" and the Ziggens "Outside!". Add bong sound effects and Sublime's signature punk rock/reggae touch, and they instantly make it their own.
