[Video] Nas & Damian Marley – Patience

While it wasn’t the track that from Distant Relatives that I chose for the year-end list, the excellent “Patience” just got a new video. The track’s slow-burning beat is built around a sample of Amadou & Mariam’s “Sabali” from their 2008 album Welcome to Mali. Amadou & Mariam come out of Mali, too, only solidifying the Africana of Nas and Marley’s collaboration.

I’m also including “Sabali” itself because it’s simply a great track in its own right and Amadou and Mariam deserve the little attention this blog can afford them. A blind husband ad wife duo, they’ve been making great music for a while but only recently had crossover success when they teamed upon with Gorillaz’ Damon Albarn, who produced their 2008 effort, Welcome to Mali. It’s full of great songs and gets MCWN’s seal of approval.
