NAS DROPS ‘DAUGHTERS’ + MOTHER’S RESPONSE
Nas is a concerned father who became alarmed when his teenage daughter Destiny photographed some questionable items and posted them to her Twitter account. In response to such activity, he wrote a song called “Daughters” which highlights his shortfalls as a dad.
In the song, Nas acknowledges that he hasn’t been the strictest parent saying,
“I’m too loose, I’m too cool with her
Shoulda drove on time to school with her
I thought I dropped enough jewels on her
Took her from private school, so she can get a balance
To public school, they too nurture teen talents
They grow fast, one day she’s ya little princess
Next day she talking boy business, what is this
They say the coolest playas and foulest heart breakers in the world
God gets us back, he makes us have precious little girls”
After what appears to be genuine concern one would think that Destiny’s mom would be proud of Nas for taking responsibility as a father; quite the contrary.
