Nas and Damien "Jr. Gong" Marley team up

In some ways the pairing of rapper Nas and reggae artist Damien "Jr. Gong" Marley seems a little strange, but it's not the strangest musical collaboration ever either. The duo are not only preparing an album together entitled Distant Relatives (to be released on Universal Republic Records on May 18), but they'll also be on tour to support the record. They'll be taking alongNneka  on the road with them as well. A full list of tour dates is available after the jump, including our first hint at one of the shows that's going to be at the Williamsburg Waterfront this year--mark your calendars for July 31st for it (though we're guessing the show will NOT be one of the free ones).
