Distant Relatives 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. The youngest son of the legendary 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 Award outside of the Reggae category, taking home an award for Best Urban/Alternative performance for his 2005 single ''Welcome To Jamrock.'' The acclaimed breakthrough album of the same name also won a Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album. Pair him up with a hip-hop icon who burst out of the Queensbridge housing projects, a hotbed of rap artistry since the early '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. Distant Relatives features live musicians as well as studio production by Damian Marley and his elder brother Stephen Marley, a distinguished award-winning artist and producer in his own right, with the hard-hitting lyrics of Nas. Featuring guest appearances by Lil Wayne as well as the critically acclaimed Somali-born, Canadian-raised MC K'NAAN.
