Nas & Damian Marley - As We Enter (Foamo Mix)

Get out your airhorns and crossfaders for some afternoon ganja rap reggae radness! Yep, it's a mix of Nas and Damian Marley's As We Enter, as envisioned by Foamo. Pretty fitting since the guy IS from High Wycombe. Ha. High. Dreads. Stereotypes. Oh, and a friggin' amazing mix!

This mix is liquid gold and it makes me want to turn up my dutty whining skills like a dancehall boss. With a grinding beat, a perfect play on the horns post-chorus, and just enough of the vocal elements to make it "lip-syncable", you can guarantee this one goes on repeat.

 

And repeat it again.

Nas and Damian Marley: Distant Relatives Tour

After teaming up for a surprise performance at Levi's FADER Fort during SXSW, Nas and Damian "Jr. Gong" Marley will pack up and hit the road together on their just announced Distant Relatives Tour. The tour will follow the May 18 release of their highly-anticipated collaborative studio album of the same name, and will include performances at Bonnaroo and Gathering of The Vibes.

Featuring the signature instrumentation and musicianship of Damian with the hard-hitting beats and lyrics of Nas, the album title, Distant Relatives, refers not only to the bond between the artists, but the connection to their African ancestry, which inspired both the album and tour. Opening for Nas and Damian during their landmark trek is Nigerian-born singer-songwriter, Nneka, who recently introduced her sound earlier this year through her US debut release, Concrete Jungle
