I was rather excited about this track when it leaked back in January and I subsequently wrote about it. But now that there’s a video for “As We Enter,” an old school hip-hop back-and-forth banger, that enthusiasm has doubled. Why? Well, this means Damian Marley and Nas’s Distant Relatives could more than likely actually be dropping next month. The only less than exciting thing about this track is its video. The visuals absolutely complement the gritty tone of “As We Enter,” but nothing really happens besides watching Jr. Gong and Nasir scour a warehouse. At least it gives you another reason to hear the song.
Distant Relatives is due out May 18.
