This partnership is sure to amaze as both Nas and Damian are groundbreaking artists in their own rights. Damian “JR Gong” Marley garnered his own place in music history when he became the first ever Reggae artist to win a  GRAMMY outside of the Reggae category, taking home an award for Best Urban/Alternative performance for the Welcome To Jamrock, single.  Nas emerged from the Queensbridge neighborhood of Long Island City, a hotbed of rap artist since the ’80s.  Nas first reached an international audience when his track “Halftime” was tapped by producer MC Serch as the opening cut on 1992’s Zebrahead movie soundtrack.  Since then he has released 8 solo albums and 3 compilation albums that have garnered 11 GRAMMY nominations and certified either double-platinum, platinum and gold.
