Sometimes I’m really disappointed by the quality of “New York” and “Brooklyn” weed. Whenever I ask a dealer what they got and they respond, “Oh, you know homie, some Brooklyn shit.” I always internally roll my eyes, hand over my $20 ,and am on my way. It’s not to say that the weed is bad per se, but the quality is so varying, I either get what I’d consider high grade mids, or sometimes really good Maine or Canadian weed. (On a short note, the worst weed I ever bought in Brooklyn was from my one and only encounter with a Rasta dealer. It was double the price and half the quantity of the brown shit, but it was still regs. Go figure.)

I try not to look into weed too much, much like when I’m at the bar and just order well drinks the entire night because I don’t care what brand I’m drinking as long as it’s vodka. However, I’m really into Cali shit. When I came into contact with my dealer from the Bay Area, I was happy as fuck. YES! Real Jack Herer, Green Crack, and Grandaddy Purp! When I was tasked to write this, I immediately went to him. “I gotta review some weed for [Superchief], so give me a dub of your best shit.” He only had Sour Diesel, but said to me, “You know, I’m just about to pick up. It’s gonna be like 45 minutes.” It took him an hour, but he said that it was well worth the wait, and let me tell you, that shit WAS.

Name: “Lemon Kush”

Package: My drug dealer’s sock

Cost: $20

Overall: 8/10

He said it was Lemon Kush, and it certainly smelled just like lemons. It was incredibly fluffy, and broke up in my grinder with only 3 rotations, which is a sign that you’re getting some REALLY good shit. I then went and rolled a spliff, which was very easy to do as well considering how finely it broke up.

Let me be high for a second and just say something. I think it’s shitty for hate on spliffs, besides those who don’t smoke cigarettes. If you get a slice of pizza, you put oregano, red pepper, and garlic on it, don’t you? Or how about dressing on salad? Somehow, people think putting a light layer of tobacco on top is blasphemous. That’s some stupid shit. Whatever. (I always get canoes with pure weed joints anyways.)

So I rolled a (not-the-best) spliff with a little more than a third of a gram and I smoked it. It was incredibly slow burning, considering the fact I had to use Bambu papers. It hit very very smooth, and yes, it did taste like lemons. It kind of tasted like somebody rolled a joint with a lemon-flavored Juicy Jay. It was a great smoke, and I could start to feel the high creeping on about a quarter way through, and by the time it was a clip I was blazed. The high is incredibly concentrated and can be felt mostly behind the eyes, and in the entire head. I feel that if you were to walk into some place to get food, or a bodega, everybody would be able to tell, so if that’s not your thing and it makes you paranoid, you might want to stay away from this stuff (and Kush in general.) It also made me feel like I didn’t want to get up from my seat and that my feet were locked to the floor, but with a buzzing inside my head. If you were, let’s say, writing an article for a website, then this weed would be for you.

I’m giving Lemon Kush an 8/10 because the high is fantastic, it tastes really good, and it’s real easy to break up and smoke. On the other hand, it makes you into a couchlocked lazy fuck who doesn’t want to do anything.
Fuck, I had shit to do today. Hahahahaha.

This shit really made me want to bump 2Pac.

FIGHT CLUB: THE BEST OF FRIDAY NIGHT THROWDOWN

Following the news of Throwdown’s return at SXSW this year with a Texas vs. NYC event, it seems only appropriate to take a look back at the history of Friday Night Throwdown, and the coverage we’ve had of it here on Superchief over the years. For the uninitiated; Friday Night Throwdown wasn’t just NYC’s best underground boxing event, it was NYC’s best underground party.

TEXAS VS. NYC: THROWDOWN RETURNS AT SXSW THIS YEAR

HIGH ON HUNGER: JANE CHARDIET

“High on Hunger” is Jane Chardiet’s new zine, featuring personal essay, photography and interviews with 12 artists, including some of our favorites, about their 2013 and their artistic goals in the new year, along with photographs of each licking fire. It’s good stuff, so I asked Jane about her 2013, because turnabout’s fair play and that’s how the game works.

12 O’ CLOCK BOYS (BALTIMORE STREETBIKE REALNESS)

Whatever your city is doing, what the homies out in B-More are doing is 10x as crazy. 12 O’ Clock Boys is one of the hardest movies we’ve seen in a long time, hands down, exploring a city and a culture that just doesn’t give a fuck (and featuring Baltimore himies like Schwarz on the soundtrack) the film gets more done in it’s 75 minutes than most documentaries do in twice that.

THERE IS A TINY LEG A QUARTER OF AN INCH BELOW YOUR TENTH RIB.

“Although Tiny Leg’s sound owes much of it’s inspiration to the Oakland glucose and thumbtrack scenes of the mid-nineties, and has been called by HotFridge magazine ‘a thumbcore homage to the sound of Velvet Curtis and Taco’ and ‘a slick-stale, neo-juicy, post-hipster alchemy, somewhere in between gluke-wave and puke-base’ by PeckerwoodsToday, those sentences are too journalistic and not souague enough, if one may permit my french.”

STACY KRANITZ’S SKATOPIA (50+ Photos From a Burnout’s Paradise)

Photographer Stacy Kranitz recently journeyed to Skatopia, a famed 88 acre skate park/commune in Ohio which was founded in 1995, documented in the 2010 film of the same name, and once described by writer Kevin Duffel as “a demented mess that meets halfway between an anarchistic Mad Maxian Thunderdome and a utopian skateboard society.” Goddamn if it isn’t one of the best things we’ve ever seen.
