Kardinal Offishall has debuted a music video for his brand new song "Numba 1 (Tide Is High)". Directed by Gil Green, who also helped making music videos for Lil Wayne's "Lollipop" and DJ Khaled's "We Takin' Over", the video features a cameo appearance from Keri Hilson, who also lends her vocals to the song. It begins with Offishall walking into an R&B dancing party and he performs the song with Hilson for the guests.
"Numba 1" is a Supa Dups-produced single which is a cover version of The Paragons' 1967 reggae song "The Tide Is High". The song that appears on Offishall's September-9 release "Not 4 Sale" is the latest version of the "Tide Is High", which only features Rihanna.
Offishall will be performing in Paris for at least four shows at different venues before flying to London for several live concerts and making a stop at Paramount Theatre in Seattle, Washington with Nelly and The Sugar Hill Gang on November 8. Complete schedule for Offishall's upcoming shows can be found on his MySpace page.
