Positive…. Damian & Nas

22 Sep

Linking Hip Hop and Reggae, Damian & Nas speak the theme of their album Distance Relatives quite clearly. The song discusses how we all have a common brotherly heritage in Africa.  Slower than the other tracks, their message is heard easily, “Who are we today? The Slums, diseases, AIDS. We need that all to fade, we cannot be afraid.” To be true to ourselves and to address the problems in the world today, this track is truly positive. And no, sorry, I don’t have any clue what K’naan says in his section.
