The WhoRidas, weed’s highest endorser, have produced High Times. One album filled with rhymes about or dedicated to the stick and its effects. With title’s like 'Get Lifted' and 'Still Smoking' you can tell what they’re rhymes are going to be about.

The WhoRidas are out of the Left Coast and have ties with the Likwit Crew. This is the WhoRidas most adventurous and enjoyable CD. It starts off with a real funny intro which has the ‘Ridas dedicating their album to Cheech And Chong. This flows into a cool party joint called 'Still Smoking,' it contains a dope beat and will get you moving in seconds. The lyrics are nothing special but fits the song right.

'Harem' is a middle east type track and is the most imaginative track I’ve heard in awhile. The theme, beat, and lyrics (ex. Dirt niggas-referring to the desert) all are original and no emcee/group have done something like this to my knowledge. Really original and nice to see.

The production is 100% on point on this CD. Every track has a party vibe to it and they are all original. 'Get Lifted' and 'Doc Of the Bay' are terrific examples of how good their beats are. WhoRidas aren’t very good rhymers but that is not what makes ‘em so good. The ‘Ridas are very creative and are very successful at doing renditions of songs. A good example of this is the track 'Jane,' track dedicated to weed which the hook is the same as Next’s 'I Still Love You' but WhoRidas style.

The only place where they fail is stereotypical of West Coast artists. They attempt to be gangsters and fail in doing so. Cuts like 'Do or Die' and 'Triple Beam Threat' are obvious misses. This CD is 14 songs deep and very enjoyable to listen to. This is not for the people who care a lot about lyrics. If you enjoy dope party beats and some funny lyrics pick up this CD!
