Album: Berner & B-Real – Prohibition Part 3
The Marijuana Magnate and the Cypress Hill Vet Demonstrate How They’ve Always Been “For The Bud” in the New Prohibition 3 Visual
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
As two of Hip-Hop’s most enthusiastic marijuana entrepreneurs, Berner and B-Real are more prepared than most to preach the benefits of the good herb to the masses. On “FTB,” they affirm their passion for the life-transforming medicine, illustrating how marijuana has improved their lives and their relationships. Take a trip with the two rappers as they stack up ounces (errr, pounds?) smoke deluxe joints, tour grow farms, and blow smoke in front of adoring crowds. “FTB” is the first visual off Prohibition Part 3, the third collaborative effort from Berner and B-Real in as many years.
Released the day after the U.S. Elections, Prohibition Part 3 passionately advocates for marijuana legalization across all 50 states. This November, the nation took more baby steps in the direction of legalization, as Nevada, California, Maine, and Massachusetts voted to legalize recreational use of marijuana, while Arkansas, North Dakota, and Florida voted to legalize medicinal use. Released via Berner’s Bern One Ent., the album is perfectly suited to a late night smoke session or a windows-down drive down the California coast.
With over 22 solo and collaborative albums under his belt, Berner is one of rap music’s most productive stoners. Prohibition Part 3 follows up the lush and expansive Hempire, which debuted at #4 on the Billboard Hip-Hop Album Charts in March. The San Francisco serial entrepreneur has built a marijuana empire, creating popular cannabis strain Girl Scout Cookies, and founding apparel company Cookies SF. Berner recently parterned with Jungle Boys to launch Exotikz, a home for the biggest “designer” marijuana strains and a legit platform for production & distribution. 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.

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.
