Tonight’s track is a fantastic blend of reggae and rap. I admit to not really knowing much about Nas’ other stuff, but I really like this one. Damian Marley is, of course, son of Bob Marley. This track is a slow mellow groove that you kind of have to slouch into, with a sharp-edged rhythm guitar. The bullhorn effect on the chorus vocals works pretty well against the rapped verses. The tempo seems to struggle to restrain itself, moving forward purposefully but always holding a little back… beseeching patiently.
