The connection between music and marijuana is just as visible as it is loud. The “Stoner Movement” is all the more evident with marijuana becoming more commercial and states now legalizing the recreational drug. More recently the movement has become a culture; and within this culture you can find Pennsylvania emcee and cannabis advocate Royal Dutchie. The Johnstown native is truly dedicated to the marijuana movement and exhibits this not only through his highly addictive fashion line, but through his music as well.
Today, Royal Dutchie premieres his debut solo mixtape, They Don’t Love Me No More, via The Roundtable Empire. The mixtape is jam-packed from beginning to end with bangers and head nodders. They Don’t Love Me No More is a nice blend of both, original beats and industry heaters. The project features his 56 & Runnin’ family members Chris DeVille, TEN/27, D. Ess, and LeRon. The mixtape also features production by Jay Beats, vocals by Jei-Laya, and some tough bars by Q.
“The mixtape is based off two parts of my life,” said Royal Dutchie. “The first half of my life I was in a situation that I really didn’t need to be in. The mixtape starts off with how I’m moving on from that situation and then it goes into where I just transformed into ‘I don’t really give a f@ck about what anybody thinks’. It’s some real life sh!t. Almost less of a mixtape and more of a story.”
“The name of the mixtape came about from me spazzing on that “They Don’t Love Me No More” beat. I also felt like it fit because there ain’t no love in the city. I mean all the rappers in the city, they don’t love me no more. Everybody that was in the whole movement with 56 & Runnin’. You felt like my niggas didn’t rock with me. Like they thought I was out here by myself. So They Don’t Love Me No More was the proof, like, my niggas is still riding with me. I got all my niggas on the mixtape…all of them. It’s really playing off the theme “They Don’t Love No More,” but in reality I got all the love.”
“Right now for me it’s all about the business and building my brand, however, Royal Dutchie is more than a brand. This is how I live,” said Royal Dutchie.
“Half these m@therf&ck%rs in the industry smoke trees…even the ones who don’t openly admit to it. It’s just what it is. Marijuana is taking over. Sh!t, the whole marijuana movement is taking over. Not just in the Hip Hop culture…it’s becoming a norm,” said Royal Dutchie. “I believe within ten years marijuana will be legal federally. Until then, I’m dreaming outrageous.”
Be on the lookout for Royal Dutchie’s upcoming album entitled Reasonable Suspicion, set to drop in April of next year.
