Willie Nelson, 'Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die'

As country music's most ardent steward of the cannabis court, Willie Nelson doesn't actually have many songs that deal specifically in getting high — perhaps he chooses to live by example rather than in lyrics. But "Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I Die" is a honky-tonk gospel that's anything but subtle. Nelson paired with rapper-turned-Rasta Snoop Dogg, Jamey Johnson and Kris Kristofferson, releasing the track on the holy high holiday of 4/20. Though the album version (from 2012's Heroes) suffers from Snoop's super-awkward twang-izzle phrasing, the stripped-down bonus takes are classic Nelson, where he lays it down like his last will and testament.
