The song, which is dedicated to his marijuana use, peaked at number 22 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart and received massive nationwide airplay in 2002.[1][2] The song was also featured on the 2002 compilation album Swizz Beatz Presents G.H.E.T.T.O. Stories, as well as Music Inspired by Scarface (2003) and on the soundtrack to the 2004 stoner film, Soul Plane.

Remixes

The song was officially remixed twice. The first remix features a guest appearance from American hip hop duo Method Man & Redman; this remix was featured on the Def Jam compilation album Red Star Sounds Volume 2: B-Sides.[3][4] There is another well-known version of this remix, released on mixtapes and online, that features an additional verse from Style P's then-Ruff Ryders label-mate, Jin. The second remix features Style P's D-Block cohorts Jadakiss and Sheek Louch, along with fellow American rappers Birdman, Drag-On and J-Hood. Both maintain the original production, however both remixes begin with a sample of Rick James' 1978 single "Mary Jane", while an excerpt from the 1995 stoner film Friday plays, as Chris Tucker's character Smokey claims: "Man ain't nothing wrong with smoking weed. Weed is from the Earth. God put this here for me and you...take advantage man."
