Distant Relatives is a collaborative studio album by American rapper Nas and Jamaican reggae artist Damian Marley, released May 18, 2010 on Universal Republic and Def Jam Recordings. Distant Relatives Q&A. Primary Artists Damian Marley & Damian Marley & Nas. Featuring Joss Stone, Junior Reid, K’naan & 3 more. Producers Damian Marley, Junior Reid & Stephen Marley. Writers Andre Forrest, Courtney Diedrick, Damian Marley & 13 more. Assistant mixing Charles Wakeman & Eric Twizted Young.

On July 21, 1978, Damian Junior Gong Marley was born in Kingston, Jamaica. The turns of fate tear apart as often as they unite, so perhaps we should first take a moment to appreciate the simple fact that Distant Relatives exists. Nah Mean" features one of the best Nas performances we’re heard in a minute, Marley’s reggae roots makes "Land of Promise" bump and together they make "Africa Must Wake Up" extraordinary.

Nas and Damian Marley are both sons of celebrated musical figures, so god knows they probably have plenty to talk about. Five years ago, Nas guested on Marley's "Road to Zion" and sounded great doing it. Onstage together at SXSW, they had a lively chemistry, Marley chatting madly over the ". State of Mind" beat and Nas giddily playing hypeman on "Welcome to Jamrock". But too often on Distant Relatives, Nas and Marley fall into a sort of middlebrow funk, kicking overripe platitudes over sunny session-musician lopes and letting their self-importance suffocate their personalities. Marley's never done his best work shooting for inspirational. On his best tracks, he brings less of his father's wizened optimism and more of the gravelly, demonic snarl of dancehall-schooled avengers like Sizzla or Capleton.

The Nas and Damian Marley collaboration Distant Relatives came together as a way to earn money for schools in Africa, but before any corny charity album misconceptions get in the way, know that this is one purposeful monster and a conceptional bull's eye that fully supports its title. Actually, it all comes together in the album’s first few seconds as Marley and Nas loop a sample of Ethiopian jazzman Mulatu Astatke for As We Enter ’s effective and infectious beat
