The Marley bloodline has birthed so many talents, and reggae veteran Damian Marley is one of the most accomplished. His latest is the “Medication (Remix),” which now features his brother Stephen “Ragga” Marley, Wiz Khalifa and Ty Dolla $ign, coupled with a new video. The original “Medication” appears on Damian Marley’s 2017 album, Stony Hill.
The visual, directed by James Larese, starts with a sweeping view of the iconic Hollywood sign, this time edited to show Hollyweed. By now you know exactly what kind of “Medication” this song is about. We get scenes of Ty Dolla $ign singing on a sidewalk with the brothers Marley, Wiz rapping in front of a dispensary and Stephen and Damian checking out an indoor weed garden.
Stephen Marley has hook duty, with everyone else handling the verses. “Medication, your medication makes me high/Just be patient, I’m like a patient trying to find,” he sings, sharing his love of the (somewhat) legal plant. “Levitation, run your fingers down my spine/Elevation, your medication makes me high, yeah.”
Speaking of Wiz, he hasn’t been quiet at all, releasing new music and prepping his upcoming album. Never too far from the weed, he dropped a “420 Freestyle,” 21 days before the holiday. He also has an as-yet-titled album coming on July 13, which he revealed in a video of his impressive bowling skills.
Not to be outdone by Taylor Gang leader Wiz, Ty Dolla $ign is hard at work, too. Ty is featured alongside fellow singer 6LACK on Khalid’s new single “OTW.” The Cali crooner also appears on Smoke DZA’s new single “The Love.”
