The timing for this music video is great. Washington DC, the city where stand up comedian Rob Cantrell was born and raised has recently Legalized Marijuana. “Amazing, It appears odd saying it. It is a bit dubious in light of the fact that the DC leader and a few congresspersons are debating the lawful consequences of full on legitimization of Marijuana in the city.” says Cantrell. “It is a ‘Hot Button’ theme at this time and this feature was super amusing to shoot in the place where I grew up given everything that is occurring at this moment.” The tune is re-blended with new verses and masterminded in a neighborhood Go-Go musical structure with the assistance of DC zone band LIONIZE. The DC Go-Go sound was conceived in the District and is an astounding unique musical sort that is an off shoot of Funk, with numerous likenesses to Hip-Hop.

BCT: So how are you doing?
RC: I’m doing well.
BCT: Fantastic, so you were on Last Comic Standing, right?
BCT: Could you tell us about your experience with that?
RC: I was on the very first one, so it was kind of bizarre, nobody knew what it was, it kind of came out of nowhere. I’d been doing comedy in San Fransisco for about three years and it was my first real break. The audition was weird, we’d been told a little bit about it, didn’t really know much. I walked in and I got past the first round in San Fransisco and they invited me to LA and I got picked out of that, and there were a lot more comics, then I went to Las Vegas. That was the year they had us all living together in a mansion in Beverly Hills. I’d just finished opening for Todd Barry at the Sacramento Punchline, I remember, and then all of a sudden a couple weeks later I’m on national television. So I went from zero to 2000 really fast.
