Land Of Promise
Nas & Damian Marley Lyrics


Now I and I say greetings in the name of The Mighty King
And I & I say played by the King love is all I bring
And I & I say Africa is I & I responsibility dreadlocks
Yes, huh!

The Promise Land
Going to The Promise Land
Yes the Promise Land, oh gosh now
To the Promise Land
Ye

Imagine Ghana like California with Sunset Boulevard
Johannesburg would be Miami
Somalia like New York
With the most pretty light
The nuffest pretty car
Ever New Year the African Times Square lock-off
Imagine Lagos like Las Vegas
The ballers dem a ball
Angola like Atlanta
A pure plane take off
Bush Gardens inna Mali
Chicago inna Chad
Magic Kingdom inna Egypt
Philadelphia like Sudan
The Congo like Colorado
Fort Knox inna Gabon
People living in Morocco like the state of Oregon
Algeria warmer than Arizona bring your sun lotion
Early morning class of yoga on the beach in Senegal
Ethiopia the capitol of fi di Congression
A deh so I belong
A deh di The King come from
I can see us all in limos
Jaguars and Beamers

Riding on the King's Highway
To the Promise Land
Going to the Promise Land
Oh gosh
Ye the Promise Land
Yeaha the Promise Land
Oooh

Promised Land I picture Porsches
Basquiat portraits
Pinky rings realistic princesses
Heiresses bunch a kings and queens
Plus I picture fortunes for kids out in Port-Au-Prince
Powerless they not allowed to fit
But not about to slip
Vision Promised Land with fashion like
Madison Ave Manhattan
Saks 5th Ave and
Rodeo
Relaxing popping labels
Promise Land no fables
This where the truth's told
Use them two holes
Above your nose
To see the proof yo!
Imagine a contraption that could take us back when
The world was run by black men
Back to the future
Anything can happen
If these are the last days
And 100-foot waves come crashing down
I get some hash and pounds
Pass around some bud then watch the flood
Can't stop apocalypse
My synopsis is catastrophic
If satellites is causing earthquakes
Will we survive it
Honestly man it's the sign of the times
And the times at hand

There's a lot of work to be done, oh gosh
In the Promised Land
Talking 'bout the Promised Land, oh gosh
Take me to The Promise Land
The Promise Land
The Promise Land
The Promise Land

There's plenty of land for you and I
Buy and buy
Lots of food to share for everyone
No time for segregation

In the Promised Land
Yes a to The Promised Land
The Promised Land
Going to The Promise Land, ohh
There's a lot of work to be done, oh gosh
In the Promise Land

John Klain

The masses ask if the most high is on his way here
I'm trying to stay clear, my mind is my modern day spear
Hey I say, dispear, huh!

Now it's back to what comes natural
Must survive any how you have to
Dispear, desperation but I have no fear when I hold this spear


So, rise up to my defense
Hollow pointed is my preference
Should have been deterred don't know what you heard
Get referred by the wrong reference
When this spear start dispense
It a fly and a tear through fence
Dismember your members and all of your limbs body bust inna nuff segments
Well, man a run drugs man a run risk
Man all a run out a time and ends
Man a run up and down and a run fi dem life and a run down this month rent
Nothin' nah gwan a yard and food deh a road then man hafi go touch pavement
Dispear was a tool that was used to enslave man and mek manservant
Escape from despair and desperation becomes more urgent
Mankind needs to cleanse and wash out dem soul with spiritual detergent
A distant army a distant relative controlling the circumference
And any man move with no permission they're feeling the circumstance of
Dispear, hey

Correction: Damian Marley Verse
Imagine Cape Town like California with Sunset Boulevard
Johannesburg would be Chicago
Durban like New York
With the most pretty light
The nuffest pretty car
Ever New Year the kwaZulu Times Square lock-off
Imagine Kimberley like Las Vegas
The Ballers dem a Ball
Witbank like Atlanta
A pure plane take off
Bush Gardens in the Vaal
Miami in Nelson Mandela Bay
Magic Kingdom inna Bhisho
Philadelphia like Rustenburg
Limpopo like Colorado
Fort Knox in Nelspruit
People living in Lesotho like the state of Oregon
Lephalale warmer than Arizona bring your sun lotion
Early morning class of Yoga on the beach in Ballito
ULUNDI the capitol of fi di Congression
A deh so I belong
A deh di The King come from
I can see us all in limos
Jaguars and B'mos

Just an absolute perfect song. Rhythm, lyrics, substance, meaning, harmonization, and beautiful rap poetry. Had the privilege of watching Marley and Nas perform this live in 2010 at Williamsburg waterfront park, my home neighborhood born and bred. Beautiful experience backed by beautiful music...and women. Nas is majestic on this and Junior Gong lays it down. Life is good.

Brian Sykes

A real slept on album. Still bumping 2018.

2021!

2021. Such a beautiful album.

pansysgarden

I agree with you. Slept on is right. No respect for real quality work such as this album. Only respect for garbage on the radio. Still bumping in 2020.
