Many moons after the project was first announced, Nas and Damian Marley’s joint LP, Distant Relatives, is about to hit stores and Yo! Raps has the unofficial tracklisting.
There has been no sign of an official release date to date, but the LP is said to feature some of hip hop’s more “natural” brethren like Erykah Badu, K’naan, 9th Wonder and iconic singer/songwriter Stevie Wonder.
Nas and Marley wet fans’ appetites for the LP this summer when they performed various tracks from Distant Relatives during the Rock the Bells Tour.
