When we counted down baseball's worst-ever first pitches by musicians last year, we didn't even consider performance-enhancing drugs. To be fair, we didn't think that we needed to — but Wiz Khalifa has taken a magical approach to staying outside of the hall of shame (and, albeit to a lesser degree, home plate).

The rapper rolled up to last night's (July 17) Pittsburgh Pirates game against the Cleveland Guardians at PNC Park in his hometown with a clear mission: to fuck around — get high on mushrooms — and find out.

"Finna get stoned af and throw this first pitch at the Pirates game," Khalifa tweeted, setting his intention to follow in the footsteps of Dock Ellis's 1970 no-hitter.

While out at the ball game, Khalifa enjoyed munching on some Cracker Jacks, which he followed up with a sleepless night — all in the name of making MLB history. The Pirates may have taken the L, but the rapper got the thrill.

Watch the rather decent mushroom-fuelled pitch below.
