Nas and Damian Marley are hoping their new album will help combat racism, corrupt politics and greed.

The two musicians have collaborated on an African-themed album called Distant Relatives, which also features Lil Wayne, Joss Stone and Somali-born rapper K'naan.

Nas said: "We're dealing with a family issue with this album and nobody's excluded when we say 'Distant Relatives'."

He continued: "We're talking about everybody - white, black, Asian, Indian, whatever you are, you're our family with this one.

"If you can accept the truth, once and for all, that can help to kind of cure you of your sickness, you know, with your racism and your corrupt politics, and your greed. You think about people for a change, and you think of those people as your family. And it's a good time right now to talk about that."
