Hip-hop superstar Nas and reggae artist Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley are about to release a surprising and expected album under the name of Distant Relatives.

The main topic of the album lyrics and sound is going to be Africa indeed. They have worked together during a few months on creating a sound that dosen’t fit under the rap label but it doesn’t under the reggae label either. It is a mixture of both of them with a very strong influence of traditional African music.

The necessity of change and revolution, and to express to their listeners a positive message has made this two musicians join their strength in order to create music that says something to the world. And that is something rarely seen in mainstream artists nowadays. Therefore it makes their music much more valuable.

While we wait to the album to be released, let’s listen a song that is without a doubt the prequel of the album. Road to Zion is a Damian Marley song where they collaborated together, and you can tell the result is really good.
