MP3: Berner ft. Wiz Khalifa & Hollywood – “Gunplay” (Remix)
The Marijuana Magnate’s Solo Album, Hempire, Album is Out Now
Critical praise for Berner:
“[Berner’s flow] now rolls off his tongue in a more effortless legato. His lyrics have also deepened in both his attraction to arresting imagery (“I can see my stones glowing in the limousine tint”) to an emotional potency that seems The Jacka-inspired in its multiplicity of meaning” – Pitchfork
Berner enlists Wiz Khalifa for the official remix of “Gunplay,” a single from his Hempire album, which was the #4 rap album in the country via Billboard. On Hempire, Berner rolls out the green carpet for a litany of all-star guests, including Wiz Khalifa (who appears on five tracks), Snoop Dogg, K Camp, Travis Porter, Mistah F.A.B., B-Real, Atmosphere, Juicy J, Project Pat, Young Dolph, and Lil Kim, who revisits the “Get Money” beat on album highlight “Still Rich.” The marijuana magnate’s 22nd album and the first of three albums he is preparing to release this year, Hempire is lush and expansive, with twinkling keys, syrupy bass, helium vocal samples, and wavy synths creating a stoner’s paradise for listeners and rappers alike.
One of rap music’s most productive stoners, releasing countless albums and mixtapes and collaborating with the game’s best and brightest, Berner is bringing the same high level of quality to his music and his business endeavours. The San Francisco serial entrepreneur has built a marijuana empire, creating popular cannabis strain Girl Scout Cookies, launching a new brand of organic herbal beverages calledHemp2O, founding apparel company Cookies SF, and now he’s the partner of what is soon going to be the country’s largest grow house, Reef Industries, based in Las Vegas. In April he released the second installment of his documentary-style YouTube series “Marijuana Mania,” which gave viewers an intimate look at the state-of-the-art facility before it opened to the public. Equipped with 4,000 grow lamps and an advanced water recycling and filtration system, Berner demonstrates his deep knowledge of cannabis horticulture and provides scale as to what’s quickly becoming the country’s next cash crop.
Berner is currently headlining his 30-date Best Thang Smokin’ Tour, presented by FlavRx and Cookies SF, which features fellow Bay Area emcees Kool John of HBK Gang and Anonymous That Dude as supporting performers.

For almost 10 years, Berner has been hip-hop’s most trusted source. His track record not only in producing marijuana mood music, but also steering the most discerning of smokers to the latest new strains and products in the marijuana industry is unimpeachable. The founder/co-owner of popular apparel company Cookies SF, Berner has used his green power to strengthen his music ties, and he’s dropped a whopping 14 albums to date. During high school, the budding entrepreneur born Gilbert Anthony Mano had begun playing around and battle-rapping for fun. In 2006, he dropped his first mixtape Dirty Sneakers. His first solo album, Weekend at Bernie’s, arrived in 2009, along with four other albums. He’s worked with numerous legends in the game, from Cypress Hill’s B-Real, Project Pat and Tha Jacka to Ty Dolla $ign, DJ Mustard and Chris Brown. This year alone, he will release another three projects: Contraband with Cam’ron, Drought Season 3 with the recently deceased Bay Area legend Tha Jacka and his solo album, Hempire. He boasts 417,000 Instagram followers, who turned out in droves for his sold-out Under the Influence of Music Tour alongside Khalifa, A$AP Rocky, Trinidad Jame$ and Joey Bada$$–and his 4/20 shows in the Bay are one of the highlights of the year.
