A hip-hop icon since the early 1990s, Nas emerged from the Queensbridge neighborhood of Long Island City, a hotbed of rap artist since the ’80s. The son of jazz trumpeter Olu Dara, Nas has since gone on to sell over 20 million albums worldwide over the span of his legendary career, and has acted as an ambassador for hip-hop culture throughout the globe. The first full-length album by poet and rhyme-master Nas arrived in 1994, the RIAA platinum “Illmatic.” Since then he has released eight solo albums and three compilation albums that have garnered 11 GRAMMY nominations and been certified double-platinum, platinum or gold.

The youngest son of Reggae legend Bob Marley, Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley garnered his own place in music history when he became the first ever Reggae artist to win a GRAMMY outside of the Reggae category, taking home an award for Best Urban/Alternative performance for the “Welcome To Jamrock” single. The acclaimed breakthrough 2005 disc also won a GRAMMY for Best Reggae Album. Heralded by Rolling Stone as one of the ‘Top 10 new artists to watch,’ Marley has been touring non-stop shaking up stages all over the world.

Nas and Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley have come together to create their new album, “Distant Relatives”. It is an album created by two serious artists to explore and celebrate the correlations and deep-rooted connections between reggae and hip hop, tracing both sounds back to the African motherland that is both the cradle of humanity and the wellspring of mankind’s music.
