    The new song "As We Are" [listen here] features Nas and Marley exchanging verses. "Must be the venture," Nas raps [listen here] "That you ever thought you could ever touch our credentials/What's the initials…Burn candles, say prayers, paint murals/We big news, we hood heros…And I got the guns/And we can blaze it up on your block if you wanna/Or, haze it up, stash box in the Hummer/Or you could run, get done up…And I'm shrewd about decimals…Salute and honor/Real revolution rhymers/Like two Obamas, unfold the dramas." [listen here]
