With a recording process stretching all the way back to 2008, the concept created by Nas and Damian Marley has finally arrived as Distant Relatives hit stores today.

Looking to provide more awareness on the country and the history of Africa, and integrating it with the ancestry of the entire human race, the two artists seem to have an aim of bridging the gap specifically between the motherland and the United States.

As the project dropped today, a bonus cut was released as more of an incentive to go pick up the project.

Having the proceeds go towards Africa and teetering the possibility of building a school in the Congo, this project is about much more than album sales, so go out and support the history.
