This sweet vintage tee was made in the 90s by Wild Oats, and it features a large print graphic of a marijuana leaf with a skull super-imposed over top. The design was likely inspired by 90s hip-hop culture and its relationship with marijuana, most notably there's a strong possibility this shirt was inspired by Dr. Dre's debut album, The Chronic, which has been hailed as a marijuana manifesto and considered integral in establishing the bridge between modern hip-hop and weed culture. Aside from Dr Dre, several other popular hip hop artists from the decade also advocated for the legalization of weed, including Cypress Hill and Snoop Dogg.
Shortly after producing his debut album, Dre's record label produced Snoop Dogg's debut album, Doggy Style. Snoop has established himself as an icon in both the hip-hop and the marijuana communities. Doggy Style and all of his subsequent albums talk heavily about using the drug recreationally. Cypress Hill has also always been a vocal supporter of medical and recreational cannabis use. Their 1993 album Black Sunday even included positive facts about hemp and cannabis in the album's booklet.
