Through a harmonious blend of captivating imagery and Dre Island’s heartfelt performance, the video aims to transport viewers into a world where music, love, and the power of the herb converge. “It’s not a typical marijuana song – as a matter of fact, some people may not even think it’s a marijuana song the way I’ve structured the lyrics but if you listen keenly everything I sang about relates to the ‘female’ plant marijuana” Dre said. “The song is about my early encounters with the plant and how I was viewed and even scrutinized then for using it (by my Mum and people in general). Now, it’s a source of inspiration for not only me but the world.”
