As Jamaicans prepare for their independence celebrations August 6, world sound Reggae artiste Jesse Royal who is best known for his timeless and introspective single, "Modern Day Judas," has released a video medley for two of his newer singles "Gimmie Likkle" and 'Finally,' depicting life, after the passing of the law which decriminalizes Marijuana in Jamaica and the vibe among weed smokers/peddlers. On his 'Gimmie Likkle' track Royal said, "nuff a these laws must be repelled...," and as if embracing peacefulness sang, "finally dis natty dread can smoke inna peaceon ' 'Finally.' 

The 'Gimmie Likkle/Finally' video medley, directed by Jay Will for Game Over Films capture Jesse Royal appearing to be dreaming while lying in a hammock in a herb field and waking up to find his dream a reality. Director Jay Will created a then and now scenario where comparisons were drawn between the days when it was illegal to smoke week on the corner and how weed smokers were humiliated upon being apprehended by the police. And now, both police and Jesse Royal who appeared as a weed merchant find common ground, selling weed to the cops, doctors and others undisturbed as various different uses of the weed goes on full display.
