Bring it Back: Damian Marley – Road to Zion f. Nas [2005]

blame it on Shake May 31, 2010

This past Saturday I hit up The Joint to check out Nas & Damian Marley do their thing during the Vegas stop of their Distant Relatives Tour. While I feel the show would have been 10x better in a smaller venue (House of Blues, etc) I still left satisfied. Since then my playlist has been heavily influenced by their respective catalogs. So in light of Distant Relatives, lets bring it back to their first collaboration off Damian’s third album, Welcome to Jamrock. And as a bonus I included one of my favorite joints to see Nas perform live. Although seeing the pain and passion put into the last verse of Strong Will Continue, I might have to reevaluate that.

    Good post, I haven’t listened to Hate Me Now in years. That track was one of the songs that introduced me to rap. I think it was on a video game soundtrack, maybe a NBA Live or Madden game. Idk, thanks for bringing that song back for me

  • fake Shake = JonnieGayward………….startin to realize the majority of the ppl that post comments on here are a bunch of immature, homophobic children

  • whoooo?

    Jonnie I’d rather be an immature homophobic child than a shitty rapper named MC Young Muchacho who says he won’t post or spam his shit anymore then continues to do so on a daily basis.

    thanks for bringing this back. Forgot all about it

  • Hotnikelz Tha Don

    if my girlfriend wasnt an avid protester of both the white race and gay rights, that woulda been a cool joke…i guess that would explain the fact that every picture you appear in is either with an ugly bitch or a group of dudes…FUCK SHAKE

  • drizzzy

  • @whoooo? Me bein shitty at rappin is ur opinion that u haven’t explained but ur entitled to it so *shrug* i mmature and homophobic is a fact, u most likely don’t got a girlfriend/wife do u?..,I musta really hurt ur feelings by postin shit after I said I wouldn’t…do u feel betrayed lil buddy?

  • 410Bmore

    Hell yeah, good post. One of my favorite songs because it combines my two favorite genres in one song with my fav rap artist, Nas, and one of my fav reggae artists, Damian.

    Not hating, it’s just the truth.

  • Hotnikelz Tha Don

    calling people who dislike shake’s bullshit ‘lupe stans’ is a very unoriginal way to toss a veil over the real truth at hand. which is shake’s utter bitchassness..FUCK SHAKE
