Chronixx x Eesah Engage in a Melodic Steam Session
Chronixx opens with horns blazing, as he rides effortlessly over the beat from Black Star’s “Respiration” exhaling words of righteousness: “High grade never hurt nobody. Let herb be free on earth nuh daddy.” You’ve guessed it: it’s another ganja anthem, but this one requires a higher meditation to fully comprehend the meaning behind the “Perfect Tree.” Let’s begin with origins of Rastafari and the Legalize It movement. Bob Marley and the Wailers advocated for the legalization of herbs for the masses. Peter Tosh was a vocal proponent of green living throughout the ’70s. Before the Wailers, a man by the name of Leonard Howell built the Pinnacle as a sustainable community in colonial Jamaica with an economic base of agriculture and yup, marijuana.

This topic remains highly controversial as licenses for medical marijuana continue to fall under scrutiny by political skeptics and the media. Even though a new law of the land allows Jamaicans to possess two ounces, the economic benefit of what the late Sugar Minott called “Herbman Hustling” is still outside the legal limit. One thing is for certain, there is no way to avoid the healing attributes of hemp goods. Marley Natural animatedly endorses this market through their exclusive line of legal marijuana and skin-care products. So why the hush-hush attitude? Marijuana is still illegal in Jamaica. Chronixx uses music as a catalyst to advocate the herbal liberation in his latest mixtape Roots & Chalice.
Chronixx x Eesah introduce the meaning behind the “Perfect Tree” in this highly aesthetic visual presentation. The Steam Ministah introduces producer and long-time collaborator Eesah to the world in the this debut video. Chronixx allows Eesah’s lyrical prowess to shine as he blends “Kannabis” into the cipher. The two friends are pictured overlooking Jamaica’s lush green scenery, blazing a steam chalice under a thick layer of fog and flora. As you absorb the visuals—and Chronixx’s passionate reasoning about the benefits of the sacred plant—you can’t help but imagine a world where the herbal healing of the nation is free to simply exist in harmony with society.
