THE HIP-HOP & REGGAE PROMISED LAND
Music icons Nas and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley release the latest video from their wildly revered and successful Distant Relatives album. Land Of Promise bumps a bass-heavy Aswad-sampled instrumental along with the adlibs of reggae great, Dennis Brown. What's most striking about the tune, aside from the fusion of Hip-Hop and Reggae, is Damian Marley's metaphorical imagery that juxtaposes the countries of Africa with fitting American states. "Imagine Ghana like California, with Sunset Boulevard…" Powerful!
