With their upcoming collaborative album Distant Relatives on the way, Nas and Damian Marley will be hitting Washington D.C. for a panel discussion speaking on hip-hop’s and reggae’s global impact.

MTV News’ Sway Calloway will moderate the debate, which is set to include rap pioneers DJ Kool Herc and DJ Red Alert, as well as Jamaican music legends Daddy U-Roy and King Jammy. The event, which is being presented by National Geographic, will be taped for an upcoming documentary and will also be broadcast live on for those that cannot attend.

The event will take place at the National Geographic Live! building on December 12 at 7 p.m. Fans interested in attending the debate can purchase tickets online or at the venue’s box office for $25. The price of admission also includes entry into the after-party at D.C. nightclub Zanzibar.

As of press time Distant Relatives, does not have a set release date, nor has it been determined what label will distribute the project. Earlier this year the duo headlined the Rock the Bells tour. —Max G
