DJ Muggs (Cypress Hill) and Del the Funky Homosapien (Hieroglyphics & Gorillaz) are two living legends that have performed at after parties for the International Cannabis Business Conference before, but never have both performed at the same time. That changes in Portland, Oregon, on September 28th when DJ Muggs will be spinning as the opener for one of hip-hop’s finest, Del the Funky Homosapien AKA Deltron 3030 (and virtually too many aliases to list). We are especially fortunate to have Del performing as he suffered a serious injury touring with the Gorillaz in Europe and the Portland ICBC will be his return performance! (Heal well, Del!)
When you book a rap group with a single called “Hits From The Bong,” it can’t be too surprising when one of their members decides to smoke a joint in the middle of a performance. Nonetheless, Lorne Michaels was none too pleased when DJ Muggs decided to light up a joint during the band’s performance of “Ain’t Goin’ Out Like That.” Muggs was angered after SNL specifically told him not to light his joint, and that’s what inspired him to do it.
Del, real name Teren Delvon Jones, is also no novice when it comes to cannabis, and he recently opened up to Leafly about utilizing CBD to combat his anxiety:
“Yeah,” he says, “I use it to calm me down. I might not feel like going outside one day, or going to the grocery store. I’m not having seizures or nothing—I have anxiety attacks and shit, so that’s why I like using it. That’s why I vape tobacco in the first place. But I’ll mix a little bit of the CBD with my vape juice, just a little bit, if I’m anxious about whatever. I don’t use it a lot, because it’s still kind of hard to find. But when I find it, I use it. Definitely maybe before a show if I have it. I might even hit it on stage, don’t nobody know what it is.”
ICBC after-parties have received legendary status as conference producers understand that the networking is at least as important as your knowledge. As the saying goes, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” The Portland ICBC featuring two true legends performing at the afterparty is something that you do not want to miss. I know that I can’t wait. Don’t hesitate, be sure to get your “early bird” tickets by September 12th to save yourself $200.
