This album hasn’t been covered nearly enough by me considering it was one of the dopest albums of last year. Damian and Nas play off together perfectly, bringing together the voices of the streets of Jamaica (and in this song’s case, Africa) and the U.S. for an album where both accentuate the other. At no point in the album did I feel I needed to hear more or less from either and it is one of the most solid listens straight through. As with this song and video, each song brings a message and they maintain that focus throughout the album that will make any old school hip-hop head happy. You can grab the album off of iTunes here, it is better late than never.
