In celebration of 4/20, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley prescribes the official remix to “Medication” featuring Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla $ign, and his brother Stephen Marley.
Dolla professes his love for Mary J. “I fell in love with the sativa,” he sings. “Obsessed with your features.” Wiz adds: “I fell in love with the indica / Ever since I was young, I’ve been into ya.”
To go along with the remix, the Marley brothers join the Taylor Gang duo in Hollywood, or rather, Hollyweed in the music video. From the Walk of Fame to Venice Beach, the guys show their love for weed throughout.
Damian and Stephen joined forces on the original “Medication,” which appeared on last year’s Stony Hill. Ty and Wiz come through with the Taylor Gang remix in honor of 4/20.
Last year, Damian spoke with Rap-Up about the song’s inspiration. “With the legalization of marijuana, one of my concerns is that people who have sacrificed over the years because of growing it, transporting it, selling it, and even smoking it, are not really, necessarily at the frontier of the business of it,” he said. “These people are not paper pushers and they’re not really people who understand legislation and these things in the first place. They’re outlaws. They’re rebels. But it would be a shame if they no longer have the opportunities to feed their families because corporate structures are coming in and taking over the business.”
He also claimed that “Medication” was meant to highlight the medical benefits of marijuana. “It’s no secret that we’ve been recreational smokers for years, but we’ve always known that herb is the healing of the nation and now we have research that is proving that,” he added. “With it becoming legal in certain places, more research has been done and we see the medical benefits of it.”
Today, Wiz Khalifa also dropped the in-studio version of his smokers’ anthem, “420 Freestyle.”
