Beenie Man talks music, his history with cannabis, and using herb to create hit songs.

August 6 marks the 55th anniversary of Jamaica breaking free from the United Kingdom’s colonial rule. To honor the occasion, we are proud to bring you MERRY JANE Presents Jamaica Week. All week leading up to Jamaican Independence Day, MERRY JANE is celebrating the Jamaican people and the many great things that the island has given to the world — from music, dance, and food, to the Rastafarian religion, cannabis culture, and good vibes.

One of the biggest musical talents to emerge from Jamaica is Beenie Man. Responsible for classic singles like “Who Am I (Sim Simma),” “Girls Dem Sugar,” and “Dude,” the 43-year-old Grammy Award-winning dancehall legend from Kingston has been making bodies rock since the ’90s.

As part of Jamaica Week, MERRY JANE sat down with the “King of Dancehall” to talk about his music, his history with cannabis, and how he uses herb to create hit songs.
