Directed and shot by NABIL
It kinda reminds of Kanye's video for "POWER," which is a good thing. Extremely dope video all around.

One word: Art.
Uh...bad comparison. Patience > Power by a gazillion miles.
Tim dont be a dick, he said the video kinda reminded him of it, thats all.
dope song though, damians flow is sick.
Why did it even have to be mentioned? -_-
its powerful, very inspiring to people in the arts, and damn its just as powerful as the words of the song
and btw it is the same style as the power video, its a new technique of art in the industry so stop being ignorant Tim. Nobody compared.
reminds me why Nas is one of the greatest, damien killed it with a GOAT. and the video is like power, the style is similar, this just is in my opinion an even greater inspiration. so much "black history" gems in this video. They need to talk about it n speak on all the statues, and the meanings in the video.
Similar style but still very different, dope video.
how many illuminati references in this video? lol they're gonna have a field day with this one...
Nas + Damien Marley= GREATNESS
videos dope. reminds me of the cover to streets disciple.
lol@the ghostface wiz post...he needs to make his mark here !
I love how people hate on Nas on every post, then jump right back on the band wagon when they realize how much of a legend he is.
I mean this shit is, fuckin' ridiculous.
habib <more like "african" history references...
but im sure sum1 will try n pull the illuminati out of a hat on this one.
By the way, click the name for The Big Ghostface Chronicles...
Young Stereotype< co sign. i remmber last couple nas posts all people cud talk about is how wack his beat selection is...go to a rick ross post all u see is people defending his fairy tale lifestyle "cause the mafioso beats is dope" . most commenters are simple minded fake fans with a modern day microwave culture attitude. where the haters now?
p.s this song is dope dope dope dope dope dope dope
*plays HATE ME NOW *Diddy bops out the room
i saw them live all i got 2 say is they need to work together again n again cd was a classic
wow wow wow. very dope! I spread it on facebook, haha.
Best video ive seen in a while that shits amazing
This what you call a music video.
Nas is the true G.O.A.T.
not only a music VIDEO, this is what i call real music. THIS is why I love hip hop
This is insanely awesome.
The album was really underrated. its one of the best hip hop albums of the past 5-10 years. Great video too.
Damien's flow, lyricism, message gives me the chills. This is an amazing song and album that more people need in their lives.
Wack album, dope video though
Inspiraaatiiionnn!!! dope as fuck mang!!!! Dope song...!!!its time to teach the lower masses about the truth of your ancestry!!!
Power was WAAAY better
AFRICA FTW.thank u nas and D
pure goosebumps as i write this.
DOPE SHIT song and vid
GTFO how is power better than this? It's barley anything going on in "POWER" the camera just zooms out while two angels raise their arm and lower it to the beat while two angels slowly flies towards ye's head get off of ye dick.
Bet ya'll ain't realize it's more of a biblical reference and the blacks who are marching are the hebrews
I raizd my fist 4 BLACK POWER as i watched this.
...And i kissed my skin too.
This shit is DOPE end of story.
Someone help me out, are these weed heads dissing white people?
^^^ No but if they are cant say I blame them.
The POWER video clearly inspired this. This video was directed by Nabil who has directed for Kanye before and even made a photography book about 'Ye.
The multiple layers, ancient and royal imagery, use of slow motion and animation techniques to make the vid all parallel with POWER.
Marco Brambilla deserves credit for inspiring this great, great video, Kanye deserves the credit for introducing this type of video to Hiphop,Nabil deserves credit for taking inspiration and making something truly great. End of.

You wanna know something that really urks me about white people? Its how fucking sensitive they are , they got this new shit they started sayin called Reverse Racism. My question is how can a white person say he being discriminated against when its prolly just a couple people he talking about. Not a whole race of people or the whole system , thats racism for you. How come when black people get disrespected by the media every day , we just brush it off but when white people get called out , they get all offended ? Jus sayin
@kool Isn't that the whole concept of the song/vid? lol
Dope shit tho. I don't even really like Nas like that, but this shit is golden.
One of the best videos I've ever seen.
What is all this black power and white people bashing? LMAO. This song isn't about BLACK power. gtfo...
grow the fuck up
Who the fuck cares what some1 else's opinion is of this song/vid, if you like it then you like it. No need to get all butthurt and spill the beans about what you "hate about white people"
Fuckin troll ass

Good video. Hate that fucking hook though...that bitch sounds retarded.
Beautiful video, dope ass song. Distant Relatives is a classic fuckin' album. Got it day one and it still gets play every couple weeks
That's got to be one of the best Nas verses of all time. No joke.
Why do you enjoy having dicks in your butt?
gotta save this video on on my playlist when it hits youtube
Damian is making the most incredible music, Marley's name is very alive & well in his & Stephen's music.
This was a dope track, from an under-appreciated album. I haven't looked forward to a release as much as I did this record in a long while.
Amazing video, I was gunna say 10/10 before I clicked comments but everyone got that already
Amazing, amazing, video. Sooo much depth here. This is what I'd like to see more of.
The Black Gods are in full Affect!
@ Marty Mcfly
I agree 100% with your comment. White people become very pugnacious and acrimonious when black people call out their BULL SHIT! But white people must get all offensive and offended in order to protect their system of white supremacy so we (Black People) should not be surprised about their malfeasance.
^^^ WORD , and just so were clear , I dont be goin against all white people just the ones who hate my people. Or the ones who blame others for starting wars in other parts of the world.
white and black people both suck.... people just suck... real talk
PS... arguin sterotypes is played out
on topic: video (and song) is on some other shit
I'm gonna make the call video of the year, this needs to get plays on tv..
OMG Based God you came and fucked all my bitches. SWAG! SWAG! SWAG!
Gotta have land, gotta have acres
So I can sit back like Jack Nicholson

Yo, word to Black God. 100% cosign.
