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

The Announcement:

An insanely prolific rapper and successful entrepreneur in the burgeoning marijuana industry, Berner is the Hip Hop world’s number one source. Teaming up for the third time with legendary Cypress Hill rapper and famed marijuana enthusiast B-Real, Berner will release Prohibition 3 on November 18th. Prohibition 3 is an ideal listen for a late-night smoke session or for a windows-down drive down the California coast. While most of the media coverage surrounding the 2016 election centers on the Presidential race, with Prohibition 3, Berner and B-Real draw attention to the question of marijuana legalization. Nine states will have ballot initiatives for marijuana legalization on election day, including California, Arizona, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada, which will vote on legalizing recreational pot use, and Arkansas, Florida, North Dakota, and Montana, which will vote on the legality of medical marijuana.

With over 22 solo and collaborative albums under his belt, Berner is one of rap music’s most productive stoners. Prohibition 3 follows up Hempire, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Hip-Hop Album Charts in March. 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. Berner brings the same level of quality to his music and his business endeavors. 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 called Hemp2O, 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. Berner takes fans behinds the scenes of his marijuana empire in his Marijuana Mania video series, in which Berner demonstrates his deep knowledge of cannabis horticulture and shares his business knowledge about what’s quickly becoming the country’s next cash crop.

Today, Berner and B-Real share “Vibes,” a lush, laid-back highlight from Prohibition 3. Featuring a guest appearance from Dizzy Wright, “Vibes” finds the three emcees rhyming about their smoking habits, dropping clever couplets and demonstrating their kush expertise. Produced by Cozmo & A-One, “Vibes” is a quality appetizer for Prohibtion 3, demonstrating B-Real and Berner’s chemistry and providing a taste of the album’s expansive production.

Berner Background:

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.
