    This album is flawless....

    Rarely these days you find an album you can play all the way through.

    Classic album, Musically and Lyrically amazing.

    I had to make myself stop listening to this album because I was killing it when it first came out. But now that I have picked it back, I love it as much if not more than when I first got it. Right now Patience is my favorite track. Damian Marley has some slept on gems on this album because Nas came so hard.

    Huh, we born not knowing, are we born knowing all?
    We growing wiser, are we just growing tall?
    Can you read thoughts? can you read palms?
    Huh, can you predict the future? can you see storms, coming?
    The Earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off
    Now the Earth is round if the shape change again everybody woulda start laugh
    The average man can’t prove of most of the things that he chooses to speak of
    And still won’t research and find out the root of the truth that you seek of
    Scholars teach in Universities and claim that they’re smart and cunning
    Tell them find a cure when we sneeze and that’s when their nose start running
    And the rich get stitched up, when we get cut
    Man a heal dem broken bones in the bush with the wed mud
    Can you read signs? can you read stars?
    Can you make peace? can you fight war?
    Can you milk cows, even though you drive cars? huh

    Can you survive, Against All Odds, Now?



    I think he said ``Can you make cars even though you drive cars.

    Their website says "milk cows" and I'm not sure I agree with you after listening to the track. The vowel sounds are too different between the two C words for them to be the same word.

    Oh yeah, I just found this vid on youtube. Didn't even have a clue it had dropped.

    Distant Relatives is a top 10 record imo, all musik genres. Beyond Classic

    The flaw that holds this back from "Classic" status: To be honest, I was expecting this to be more of a "Rap/Reggae" album. This came off moreso as a Reggae album featuring a rap artist.

    would you rather nas had picked out the production? and besides, damian marley singing on more hip hop type beats would've been corny, but nas sounded great on those beats

    i woulda rather heard BRANDY on the hook, shit even MARIAH CAREY woulda been better (am i the only one who thinks this)?

    no disrespect to joss stone

    Mariah Carey??
    Ugh. Please, NO. That would have not worked well at all. Then again, I would have replaced both her along with Wayne.
