The change of pace and mood is frequent here: the album reaches summery heights on the uplifting 'Count Your Blessings' and takes a more somber direction on tracks such as 'In His Own Words (Featuring Stephen Marley)' to deliver the duo's overlying message of Africa's continuing struggle. Not much can be said for the guest features (with the exception of Stephen, Damian's brother who makes a welcome return) as they do little to add anything to what is already a complex and mature record. The slow burning ballad 'Africa Must Wake Up (featuring K'naan)' demonstrates the variability in the duo's songwriting skills and provides a dramatic close to undoubtedly one of the most successful collaborations in recent times.
Once again Damian Marley has produced a musical lyrical masterpiece of entertaining, conscious inspiring uplifting and thought provoking tunez. The collaboration with Naz has proved a success. Both artists shine in their unique styles, complimenting eachother they deliver tight lyrics in multiple sculptured melodies over exquizit muzical compositions 'one brings the guns and the other the ganja...' an while they pass the 'bud' we can share their synopsis on how our many nations evolved and progressed. If you like rap - satisfaction guaranteed... if you like phat beats - satisfaction guaranteed... if you like inspirational lyrics - satisfaction guaranteed... If you love reggae... satisfaction guaranteed. Even the immortal steppas get a mention - so, if you ever wondered what the words 'truths & rights' mean - listen up. Distant Relatives is an insight into the bigger picture that is the United States of Africa. Wake Up...!
I have given it four out of five, but that is only because I feel that you have to give a 100% rating for the best of the best. This is extremely close and if you are a Nas or Damian Marley fan you won't be disappointed.
I feel that both Nas and Marley deliver lyrically in every song and it means even more to me as it sounds like they are putting a lot of passion and heart into their vocals.
The beats are fantastic and the features are excellent and suits the songs which they are used in very well.
I am delighted!
Bottom line, worth buying if you like Nas and especially if you like Damien Marley.
