Several rappers, including Jay-Z, G-Eazy, Ice Cube, and Russ, have entered the marijuana sector at a time when recreational marijuana use is becoming increasingly legal across the country. It’s not simply about making getting high easier for folks. There has been a drive to change the penalties that were imposed on those who were sentenced to prison while it was still extensively prohibited. To help spread the word about this concept, some people in Michigan have decided to launch a new music event.
On September 4, Al Harrington’s Village, the largest conglomerate of black-owned cannabis firms in the United States, will host Nobody’s Home, a hip-hop festival to raise awareness about marijuana regulations. In addition to Rick Ross and G Herbo, Freddie Gibbs, Jay Electronica, Chase B, Babyface Ray, G.T., and others are expected to perform. The festival will take place in Benton Harbor, Michigan, with concerts taking place in Dwight Mitchell City Center Park from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m.
According to HipHopDX, Kanye West‘s longtime manager John Monopoly is in charge of organizing the festival, while Wilson Chandler, another former NBA star, runs the cannabis company Nobody’s Home, which is the event’s main sponsor.
