“Distant Relatives” is undoubtedly the best musical collaboration of its time created by two of the music industry’s lyrical geniuses. Each song has a message and collectively takes you on a spiritual journey; makes you see aspects of life from a different perspective and leaves you questioning. It entails topics such as Political corruption, poverty, violence, survival, the importance of seeking knowledge, Rastafari and Africa (The Motherland).
Jr. Gong is a great talent and is indeed the “Youngest Veteran”. His unique sound and flow gets you on a high. As for Nas, he has remained true to his craft and is one of the most underrated artiste. I admire the fact that his music is raw and a true representation of his life.
This album has gotten me through some tough days!
Now listen to 1 hour, 2 minutes and 25 seconds of good music and hold a Firm Meditation.
