TOBi and Mick Jenkins have joined forces on a woozy new single called “Off the Drugs.”
Over a slow beat and noodly guitar lick, the two artists trade lines about the highs of life—both natural and synthetic. “Show me some love / On a good trip and I hope it never end / High as a ceiling fan / And I got the spins / When off the drugs,” TOBi sings in the chorus.
In a statement, the rising Nigerian-Canadian rapper said, “When I smoke, I see things clearer and I’m way more aware. So I’m intentional about how I use it. I think more money should go into researching things like cannabis and mushrooms for their healing properties. Just the way I look at it, so many things are actually drugs—alcohol, gambling, even social media cuz it affects brain chemistry, but all that shit is legal. Whereas things that can legitimately heal if properly understood and done correctly are stigmatized, it’s wild.”
“Mick came thru and bodied the verse as he should, and we’ve got a video on the way too,” he added. “I just wanna live life to the fullest and enjoy this while it lasts. Life to me is a good trip if you let it be.”
“Off the Drugs” follows several singles from TOBi, including “Come As You Are,” “Don’t Touch!” and “Family Matters” with Flo Milli. Jenkins, on the other hand, shared his latest single, “Truffles,” last month.
