International Hip-Hop superstar Nas and GRAMMY-winning artist Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley are hitting the road with a series of solo tour dates across the U.S. The pair’s tour dates together are on the heels of the release of Distant Relatives, an album created by the two artists to celebrate the correlation and deep-rooted connection between reggae music, hip-hop, and Africa. The album features the signature instrumentation and musicianship of Marley with the hard-hitting beats and lyrics of Nas. Throughout the course of their musical careers, the duo has taught each other and always admired one another’s styles. Since first meeting in 1996, the two artists have shared a mutual respect and camaraderie that was most recently showcased on “Road to Zion,” a standout track from Damian’s critically-acclaimed album, Welcome to Jamrock. After having such a positive experience working together, they have now joined forces again for Distant Relatives. The release date for the album will be announced in coming weeks.
