Why Left Lane Events Aren’t Created Equal

So Left Lane Ent. recently celebrated the 2-year anniversary of Art & Soul.


The best moment are the exceptional ones; it goes without saying that Left Lane Ent has had a plethora of exceptional moment over the past two years.

Creating a hub for Prime Tampa artists to express themselves and be heard by a wide and diverse demographic is just what makes Left Lane Ent does, (ask local Tampa Musician, Tommy Phenom if you don’t believe us).


Left Lane has been able to cultivate an entire community of Musicians, producers, poets, entrepreneurs, and visual artists with one simple yet lasting call to action.

To fully understand the dichotomy of what makes Art & Soul and WLCM2KNXVLL what they are, we found a picture that should clearly depict the difference.

The Best 4/20 Survival Guide Playlist via Savage City Blog

April 20th for the cannabis culture is a much bigger holiday than Christmas.  In fact, we’re sure that it’s considered as Christmas among members of this pollinated subculture. Unfortunately, smoking is still illegal in a lot of states and cities, so while it may be Christmas for some it’s just another day to others. 

We’re here to provide you with the best survival guide playlist for celebrating 4/20. Curated by Tampa rapper and music writer, YZM, the list focuses on creating that Cool ass breezy Tampa Bay vibe to match the smell of that loud pack.

 Before we get into the guide let’s make sure you’re ready to get down to the tunes YZM is supplying.

#1 PULL UP TO MATCH UP (or don’t pull up at all).

While supplier of the subculture is often portrayed as a money hungry gateway pushers, many members of the subculture actually reply on an old school bartering system. So if you can’t necessarily bring bud, there are a plethora of services and goods stoners would exchange for smokies. The point is you can always bring SOMETHING to the table, don’t come empty-handed cause you will leave empty-handed, guaranteed.


This is CRITICALLY IMPORTANT, hit the corner store before you blow it down.

If you think visually overeating when you’re not high is an issue, imagine being thrown into a Walmart at peak high without a proper shopping list. You wouldn’t make it past the discounted items near the door before you dip into your car note. Whatever you do decide to eat, just make sure you decide early so you can get to the fun stuff.

 (Piggybacking on the things you can offer if you don’t have bud, Food is probably the one thing that will always sway a stoner.)

 Okay now that you got your supply & munchies, you seem about ready to turn up. Awesome, because we only have one more thing to go over.

 #3 The Rules

Just like any other holiday, you’ll probably want to spend it with your family (if they are into that) and friends. These cardinal rules will ensure that you guys remain family friends through the 20th. Don’t be mad at us if you get skipped in the rotation for braking too many rules.

-DON’T MESS UP THE ROTATION. Most likely there will be a lot in the rotation, pay attention to the circle of life.

-PUFF, PUFF, PASS. This isn’t the time for one of your tbt moments.


Now let’s get into YZM’s hand-picked tunes.

Hey Savage City Blog readers, my name is YZM and I took it upon myself create The Best 4/20 Survival Guide Playlist for you guys.

5: Starting this playlist off is Forever Underground’s own Haze Ala with his smooth joint “I Don’t Rock Supreme“.


The song is not really about weed but is a smooth song to smoke to. Check out the visuals below directed by Ceesz.

4: The next joint is by Mr. Off-The-Shits himself, Save A Rowtch.

Cold As My Meals” is a chilling anthem with an even more chilling visual. The mood is set because Rowtch does not fail to let you know he has roaches to kill.

Listen to Cold as my Meals.


3: Cloudmaster Price dropped a surprisingly dope song prime for smoking. Despite cloud master being his name, you would never expect to be on this list.

The track as alternatively named L.U.S.T (Lighting Up Some Tree’s). In an effort to not be sued by Disney, Price changed the title of the track.

Peep the Big Tank assisted single below.

2: Macibision & ADCT’s Own Phaze Jones dropped a smoking anthem With S.C.A.S.W (Sugar Cookies And Some Weed)


Phaze Jones


Assisted By label mates Nico Sweet & (fun fact) ME.

Another Fun Fact: Sugar Cookies are Females. Check out the Lofi Visuals below.


1: This has to be the greatest song about weed in Tampa’s local music scene, IMO.

Sunny Fritz – The Intro


Check out how Sunny Fritz croons melodically about smoking on that dro on the intro to his mixtape HYDROGLYPHICS.

Honorable Mentions:

Richie Gaupo: Throwed

Milli Moon: Aerie (Blue Dream)

Tyrell Golden: Bitter Sweet

Mari So Dope: Chillin’ Up

Wheatly: Temper

Watch: Fr33dback Fucks Shit Up in Focal Point

Tampa’s Matt Reisinger aka Fr33dback just dropping a ridiculous slo-mo video for his single “Focal Point“.  The visual is getting attention from some major Tampa players like the fine people over at Creative Loafing Tampa and our favorite watering hole, Crowbar.

You know we had to post about it and see how you guys like taking things slow for a bit. So check out the video, check out CL article featuring a Cigar City Radio Podcast session with Fr33dback and let us know what you think about Fr33dbacks new video. Were you as worried about the synth as we were?
