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!!

From the aforementioned new album Shotta Culture, which drops today. Based on what I’ve heard so far, it’s looking to be a rather major affair. This one, like the others, is produced by Salaam Remi.

Also, if you’re lucky….you’re at the album release party…
These tracks are taken from two different sessions. The first five selections are from a live in-studio BBC 1xtra radio program recorded in London. The remaining selections are from a May 17, 2010 performance at the Highline Ballroom in New York City.
I am very impressed that the live performances are on point. If you get a chance to see this show, you might want to reserve tickets at the earliest possible moment. Unfortunately, these recordings are not commercially available. Fortunately, however, sharing music is the raison d’etre of BoL.
So, whether you get to see Damian and Nas, here is close to an hour of live versions of music from their new and aptly titled album, Distant Relatives.

No lie, but Distant Relatives is my father’s favorite album right now. He’s 63.
