While bad journalists are using hashtag-style words to constantly come up with no alternatives for the word “iconic”, some artists are hashtagging it by giving their releases a proper title. In this case, Potluck are hard at work on putting their their album they’re going to call #StonerProblems, so as they roll up a fat one and pass it around, you can hear one of the songs to come. Produced by CountyBoy FRIZZ, it’s a song in honor of “Tom Brady”.

VIDEO; Potluck’s “Livin’ In A Fantasy”

Damn, having three HDTV’s in your home, for sports? Crazy. But that’s what Potluck are doing, living it up as the football season is about to get underway, as they celebrate the sport with their new song “Livin’ In A Fantasy”. Billy Joel once said sometimes it’s a fantasy, Aldo Nova wondered if you could live in the fantasy life, and Earth, Wind & Fire said if you find victory, all of your dreams will come true. Potluck want to know about it by living in it, to fulfill their dreams.

In truth, they are fantasy football fans hardcore and when they offered the song to, they liked it so much, they decided to use it on their site and make it a theme.

1 Ton and Underrated put the song together for their forthcoming street album The Humboldt Chronicles. Meanwhile, the group are on tour in support of their proper album, Rhymes & Resin (Suburban Noize).
