More of the same quality that we’ve come to expect from this duo. Check out the visuals for their latest single off of the Distant Relatives album below…
Newest video off of their Distant Relatives album. Check out the visuals below…
You’re watching the latest video from acclaimed hip-hop/reggae fusion duo Nas and Damian Marley. The video was both shot and directed by LA based, Australian director NABIL. The video was created in promotion of Nas and Damian Marley’s single “Patience”, taken from their debut collaborative album “Distant Relatives”. The track itself slows a sample from another musical pair, Amadou & Mariam’s “Sabali”, resulting in a mesmerising work, detailed with dark tones that match the lyrical content.
Since the dropping of the Distant Relative‘s project we haven’t posted much on it but recently all that changed since Nas and Damian’s trip to Jamaica was documented for the Promised Land video. Check out all three of the videos here.
Fans of the album will def enjoy this. Check the info and link to download below…
What we’ve got here is a small sampling of music from Africa, handpicked by Jr. Gong & Crew. As Damian Marley explained in an interview, one of the driving forces behind this collaborative record with soul brother Nas was an attempt to introduce authentic African music to a new crowd here in the States and abroad. Hopefully this compilation will further that worthy cause. Turn it up!!

No lie, but Distant Relatives is my father’s favorite album right now. He’s 63.
That said, I know he’d be happy to hear this right now. This is from their BBC 1Xtra Taping last week. Check out the audio below…

Not all together on one song though, unfortunately.
I’ve been sitting on these two joints for a few days. I figured it’d make sense to give them both to you at once. Check out the music below…

Yet another released Distant Relatives track, at this point I’m wondering what I haven’t heard from the LP yet. I think they have proven that its going to be good, so hopefully the next time I am listening to the a track on the album its because it May 18th. Needless to say this is another good work from collabo.

No need to worry I’m not posting another leak for the Distant Relatives LP, this time its an interview with Nas & Damian talking about the upcoming tour, and the album.
