D.C. is buzzing excitedly about Nas and Damian Marley anchoring a panel discussion at National Geographic on the historical and stylistic connections between hip-hop and reggae. (The two recently collaborated for the "Distant Relatives" album and documentary on the topic, too.) Unfortunately for some, the discussion is already sold out. However, you can still get tickets to the after-party at Zanzibar, which promises appearances by Rakim, Red Alert, DJ Kool Herc, dub producer King Jammy and dancehall legend Daddy U-Roy -- an assembly of artists without whom the hip-hop and reggae history books couldn't be written.-- Rhome Anderson (Dec. 2009)
