In case you weren't paying attention, Nas and Damian Marley have decided to get together and collaborate on a new album which is some of the greatest news I've heard in a long time.   The concept in itself of mixing Rap and Reggae is sick but the fact that it's two of the greatest in either genre makes it that much better. I've been a huge fan of both of these dudes for a long time and hearing anything new from either of them is always nice but having them together on an entire album is pretty hard to imagine.

"As We Enter" is the first official single from the Distant Relatives album and if this is any indication of what's to come then this album is going to be on FIRE!  This isn't the first time Rap & Reggae has collaborated like this but it might be the first time where it was done so effortlessly.  These two sound like they were made to perform together.  I have a feeling that this is going to be a timeless album that we'll be listening to for years to come. 

Distant Relatives will be in stores on May 18th.  Download "As We Enter" on Nas & Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley - As We Enter - Single - As We Enter
