CD: Nas & Damian Marley - Distant Relatives

Rating 4/5.

Reggae married to hiphop – and the result is a powerful one. The two kings of their respective genres complement each other on this Africaninspired album that also features K’Naan and Lil Wayne. Nas and Marley’s voices unite to highlight the plight of our continent as they sing and rap about war, poverty and brotherhood. And they manage not to sound preachy. Watch out for some explicit lyrics though.
