Play Audio

The 420 anthem is here: Wyclef's "Four Twenty" also featuring Wavie D and Alshawn Martin. It was released in March on the mixtape, Wyclef Goes Back to School, Volume 1.

Here are the lyrics:

CHORUS

Took a trip to Cali just to smoke some herbs
It felt like four-twenty every day
'Cause where I’m from, man, this shit ain't legal
But I brought it home anyway
So fuck the cops, we breaking rules
Light the blunt up and get fucked up, yeah, yeah
Light the joint up and get stoned, yeah
Light the joint up and get fucked up, yeah, yeah

VERSE 1

One small thing, one small thing
Felt like four-twenty every day
One small thing, one small thing
Roll the joint for me, roll the joint for me
One small thing, one small thing

Felt like four-twenty every day
One small thing, one small thing
Roll the joint for me, roll the joint for me

VERSE 2

Smoke some weed in somewhere Minnesota
Even though I wasn't ’posed to
Hit the sour right before the show
I'm from Milwaukee Mary Jane who we get close too
Elevation from the herb
The love is from the herbs
Smoking on the finest in the city
Know I'm dancing with the spirits
Got me thinking if its a gift or a curse

CHORUS REPEAT

VERSE 1 REPEAT

BRIDGE

Maui wowie, Cheech and Chong
Lets get some fire, light the gong
Everyday is Friday where we come from
Dave Chappelle, I'm half baked, yeah, ay
Beedee bee bong bong beedee bong bong
Buckingham we bring it to the crown
Free the prisoners on the lockdown
Time in the yard now, all over a count now
Sitting back when I reminisce
My days on the campus
I got the munchies doing essays
I told my girl bring the trap sticks

CHORUS REPEAT

VERSE 3

California, lately I've been having so much on my mind
That's why I’m smoking everyday
My struggles, and my troubles, left 'em all behind
Now I'm in a whole new way
My eyes so low, can't even see
Pulling up in something clean
Light it up like fuck police
We just wanna get lit
Take you on a trip somewhere in the sky
Bet it make you feel like you on a G5
Bet you didn’t know you could get this high
You can get this high

VERSE 1 REPEAT

In 2000, Wyclef's "Something About Mary" extoled the virtues of cannabis on The Eclectic.
