Damian Marley, son of Bob Marley, has been in the music business since he was a child. He is a Rastafarian and his music reflects both his beliefs and the Rastafari guiding principles of one love, one planet, and freedom for all nations. Supported by A-WA!!!
Marley has described his music as “dancehall and reggae. I’ve noticed … people trying to separate the two of them,” he continues. “It’s Jamaican culture in general. I don’t try to classify or separate.” Distant Relatives Fused hip hop and reggae musical elements, Marley and Nas also incorporated samples from African music into the album. The album’s lyrical content heavily revolves around themes concerning Africa, from ancestry and poverty, with social commentary of the United States and Africa. The track “Count Your Blessings” reflects on the plight of Africa.
