Rapper Nas and reggae star Damian Marley are collaborating on an album that will likely be released in the spring.
Nas’ manager Anthony Saleh told Billboard that the pair has been working on the project in Los Angeles for the last several weeks.
“We’ve been recording in a studio, where people like Mick Jagger are recording. No one knew who we were,” Saleh says. “We’re going to Miami this week to finish it up and we’re aiming to tour for the album this summer.”
Details are still being worked out, but the goal is for a portion of the proceeds to go toward building a school in Africa.
Nas was nominated for best rap solo performance and best rap album for “Untitled” at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards but was edged out by Lil Wayne in both categories.
