J. Brookinz has picked this most auspicious day to release his latest full-length, The Gateway Drug: THC, which features collaborations between the producer and a bumper crop of Indy emcees. And we've got the first single for you, "I Want Sum," with Oreo Jones providing rhymes and Brookinz on the beats. It's a fun party track, and I giggled at the notion of Martha Washington picking up Funyuns for her incapacitated husband and his friends ("thank heavens for 7-11; she bought munchies for George, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson...the big three was blowing the best tree" ). Plus there's a nice scene of Oreo and his buds heading to Wal-Mart when good and stoned.
