Album: Distant Relatives
Label: Def Jam/Universal Republic
The Damian Marley and Nasir Jones alliance has been victorious on both the musical front and the socially conscious level. These brothers are pumping out the dope jams, and "Nah Mean" just might be the dopest, nah mean? One listen to the rambunctious, indigenous blast of adrenaline and you'll know what we mean. "Don't let us have to make the nine scream (Nah mean)/At your racial policing regime (Nah mean)/Spiritual like a Elohim," raps Nas, who despite what he says, ends his verse, "I'm wishing that all the violence would stop." Not to get preachy on that ass, but we need more songs with meaning, nah mean?
