When a collaboration works, a lot of artists don’t seem to continue working together. This certainly isn’t the case for Nas and Damian Marley – a Hip-Hop duo who have earned their stripes individually, however combined forces for a number of singles and project which sound great. Both Nas and Damian Marley feature in the new track “As We Enter” which is something a little different for Nas, but you can definitely feel the reggae influence throughout. You can watch Nas x Damian Marley – As We Enter on the video player below.

You can listen to Ghost x Verb T x Kashmere x Asaviour – Suspects on the player below.
