Video: Esco feat Wyclef – WEED FOR SALE

Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Reggae artist Esco Da Shocka teams with superstar Wyclef Jean in new video!

If singer/rapper Esco Da Shocker’s goal was to get people talking about his new record “Weed Fi Sale”, he succeeded.

The Jamaican-born artist is set to debut his first US-filmed music video on his YouTube channel this week.

Just fresh off releasing the Mansions Riddim, this track marks Esco’s second Riddim production — Lunatic Riddim.  “Weed Fi Sale” was originally a track that Wyclef Jean had recorded for fun but Esco took it and gave it a dancehall remix that is setting the Caribbean club scene on fire.  Lunatic Riddim now features Esco & Wyclef “Weed Fi Sale” and Mr. Lex “Wine Pon Me”.   This is the first set of releases for this riddim. Fader Magazine writes, “Translating the “I Got 5 On It” chorus from a smoker’s anthem (over Esco Da Shocka’s Lunatic Riddim, naturally) into a dancehall, hip-grinder is fairly ingenious.”

Esco Da Shocker is a multi-talented singer/songwriter and has produced a wide range of island beats drawing influences from dancehall, reggae and soca. As the son of veteran Jamaica disc jockey Errol ‘ET’ Thompson & former Wailers background singer, Marcia Griffiths, Esco is the product of major reggae royalty with the ability to crossover into the mainstream market on an international level.
