An incredible collaboration album by Nas
and Damian Marley
. It combines Marley's reggae fusion style with Nas' phenomenal rap skills. The content is very intelligent and meaningful. Most of it is about the struggles of Africa but it does not end there. The two musicians touch on injustices which the entire world has to endure, especially in the song "Patience".
"Pay no mind to the youths, cause it's not like the future depends on it. But save the animals in the zoo, because the chimpanzee's dem a make big money."- Damian Marley. (There are so many other lines I could have chosen to illustrate the lyrical genius of this album)
Distant relatives is probably one of the best collaboration albums of all time.
