Don't you play soccer by the ocean front?
In America, I shovel the snow while I'm smoking blunts
He is probably comparign situations: saying he’d much rather play soccer by the ocean than shovel snow in America
Interestingly enough, K'naan has said in this interview: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uPgxcyA4KtM That he has never smoked weed and never will…. so does the blunt have a symbolic meaning rather than literal??
