Just in time for 4/20 aka National Weed Day, members of the cannabis community will have a new way to communicate using marijuana themed emojis, GIFs and stickers with the launch of Mojiuana. The cannabis inspired mobile app with the mantra ‘Express Yourself When Words Aren’t Enough’ fills a void in an underserved emoticon market. Rappers Paul Wall, Baby Bash and Slim Thug recently announced their endorsement of the innovative application that will be on sale in App Store and the Google Play Store on April 18th.
Paul Wall is one of the more recognizable rappers to emerge from the south. The Houston native rose to fame when his first two albums both debuted at #1 on the Billboard music charts. He founded custom diamond jewelry business The Grills by Paul Wall and set his sights on the mobile market by collaborating with a Silicon Valley company to create the first mobile battle rap game.
Mexican American Rapper Baby Bash is a Billboard chart-topping artist with an international fan base. He’s worked with some of the biggest names in music, including Akon, Nate Dogg, Fat Joe and Pitbull, even penning songs for award-winning artists such as Jennifer Hudson.
Houston rapper Slim Thug has worked with entertainers like Rick Ross, Mike Jones, Paul Wall, B.O.B and appeared on Beyonce’s #1 hit single “Check On it” earning a MTV Video Award. His single “Boss of All Bosses” debuted at #15 on the Billboard 200.
All 3 artists, who have amassed millions of social media followers and loyal fans all over the world, will appear at a press conference in Los Angeles during the week of 4/20 to discuss cannabis culture following the historic legalization of marijuana in multiple states throughout the U.S., and the how Mojiuana is enhancing the language of the cannabis community through the use of inventive emoticons. Wall and Bash will also introduce their latest joint album, “The Legalizers: Legalize or Die,” which will be released on 4/20.
“Mojiuana is a fun and unique way for members of the cannabis community to express themselves and communicate with each other,” said Chris Hester, who founded Mojiuana along with Michelle Hester. “The marijuana friendly emoji market has remained desperately underserved and we’re excited to finally introduce an application that will resonate with consumers and proponents of the culture. Paul Wall, Baby Bash and Slim Thug are the first celebrity ambassadors to come on board, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. We look forward to even more high profile partnerships following our official launch.”
Mojiuana will be available in both the App Store and the Google Play Store on April 18, 2016. For more information, visit their website here.
