Word on the Tree’s inaugural playlist of Toking Tunes takes you on a brief journey across 23 years of American hip-hop music colored by various shades of jazz and R&B, from Robert Glasper’s melodious piano meanderings to the soulful and spiritual croonings of Georgia Anne Muldrow.

Our sonic venture makes a number of stops including A Tribe Called Quest’s iconic 90’s record Midnight Marauders, Robert Glasper Experiment’s rich Black Radio, and Tokimonsta’s Cosmic Intoxication for a taste of West Coast production.

As Erykah Badu’s Baduizm was “designed to get you high just by listening to the music,” we here at Word on the Tree have sought out similarly colored sounds that will undoubtedly make you feel that way.

Happy toking!
