Nas and Damian Marley are taking it back to a time when creative minds cooked up anthems in the basement. It’s neither rap nor reggae. It’s a hybrid of the two with some Mary Jane-inspired chops thrown in. From the early leaks, their upcoming collaborative album sounds like an epic. Watch as the two rave about Distant Relatives.

  3. Quiet as kept this will turn out to be one of the best lp’s out this year. Its wild its not getting talked about as much but I think that’s a good thing for the time being.

  5. I saw them at Rock The Bells in the summer and it seemed like they had pretty good chemistry and complementing styles. I think this album could turn out to be pretty good.

    It’s not going to turn out like “Best of Both Worlds” or even “The Firm”, that’s for sure.

  11. Both trailers I have seen for it have indeed hyped me up for the album, but tbh, the one or two leaks I’ve heard so far haven’t matched that.
