Published May 03, 2010Distant Relatives, Nas's collaboration with Damian Marley, has been a long time coming. Recently, we revealed the album's tracklisting and release date, so you'd think Nas was ready to kick back and let the release speak for itself. Instead, he's been keeping busy with an upcoming ESPN documentary.
As Prefix reports, the film is part of the network's continual E:60 series. It follows the lives of two members of an amputee soccer team in Liberia as they inspire the war-torn country. Nas pulled double duty as the film's narrator and providing the soundtrack.
At the beginning of the trailer, viewable below, Nas described that his rough upbringing was nothing compared to the harsh realities of Liberian war. "I realized my realities were like a walk in the park compared to what these kids go through in other countries," he explains.
Nas's E:60 episode will air in the U.S. on ESPN on Tuesday (May 4) at 7 p.m. EST. While it's unknown whether the program will air in Canada, northern Nas fans can get their fix when Distant Relatives hits stores on May 25.
