rolling high behind the scenes video shootEarlier this year, popular Canadian rap artist UZMAN joined forces with Jamaican dancehall group Nuh Limit Family to record and release a single titled “Rolling High.” Though it’s a typical weed song, “Rolling High” got a lot of attention early on because it was released during a time when the legalization and open use of marijuana was an ongoing topic in both Jamaica and North America.

Fast forward to approximately nine months later and the song is now getting steady rotation on some of the biggest dancehall radio shows on the island. As a result of its increasing popularity, UZMAN and the Nuh Limit Family recently got together to shoot the official video, which will be shared publicly on December 11th.
