From Pot to Pots, and Back to Blunts

The Mighty Diamonds - Pass the Kouchie (from Pass the Kouchie 1982)

On paper, Musical Youth's infamous cover of the Mighty Diamonds' pipe passing song was actually about passing a dutch oven, a common cooking pot used by poor Jamaicans. Realistically dutchie, the word the 10 year olds swapped from the original can easily refer to weed filled cigars, namely those of the Dutch Masters brand. Pre-teens making stoner songs isn't so PC, even in Jamaica.

This isn't the cover to match the track, I threw it up due to its brazenness.

Also, expect tons of random reggae this summer.
