Swiss reggae artist Cali P has dropped the music video for 'Carry The Load' which was shot in London, England by MediaKoncept and JOAT music. The track was produced by Kheilstone Music on the 'Reggae Root' riddim and Cali toasts a message of steadfast resilience in this trying socio-political climate, whilst also paying homage to the unity that positive music brings about amongst humanity.
