Marijuana has been a perennial hot topic in reggae music. Last week Jamaican born reggae dancehall artist, Frassman Brilliant went viral singing over ZJ Dymond Full chaarge record Tropical Feeling Riddim.
The track delivers undeniable lyrics, promoting use of the plant describing Marijuana feeding the brain. The instant popularity of “Brain Food” has definitely refueled the intersect between reggae music and Marijuana which has long been cemented since days of popular Rastafarian and reggae king Bob Marley.
Frassman’s lyrics “I and I blaze / I and I smoke/ High grade in mi medical report / Nah stop smoke / Mi done take oath / Build up the herbs / My life support/ I plant the seed / Watch herbs grow / Up in the hills / Chalice mi blow ” gifts us vision into Jamaica’s indigenous way of life, inextricably linked to the cultural identity of rootz reggae.
Wether you’re at home or driving, relaxing or moving to the hustle of your day this song is sure to bring that vibe you need to escape.
