Nas Has a Date with Destiny in ‘Daughters’ Video

Nas, Destiny Jones, June Ambrose, and Chris Robinson

Nas was joined by his daughter Destiny on set of the Chris Robinson-directed video for “Daughters” earlier this week. The hip-hop superstar, who also has a son with ex-wife Kelis, reflects on his relationship with his 17-year-old daughter on the powerful single, which will appear on his upcoming album Life Is Good, due July 17.

Despite his good intentions, the No I.D.-produced song has struck a sour note with Destiny’s mother, Carmen Bryan.

“Just heard ‘Daughters’ by Nas. What a disappointment! He had nothing positive to say about our daughter and his depiction of her is false,” she tweeted. “Perhaps her father should be talking to her and spending more time with her so he can really get to know her. Destiny is still a child-it was the wrong platform.”

  1. YES

    Nas is a great lyricist! All that matters is his relationship with his soon to be 18 year old daughter. Nas’ daughter is old enough to speak for herself and she has yet to express her any disappointment with the song. “Daughters” is such a dope & very honest song…REAL! Nas has always represented hip hop very well. Best wishes to Nas & Destiny!

    Does he pretend to give any universal truths on this song ? This is just his take, as a father and as a man.

    But nevermind, I just thank God almighty, because legendary recording artist, lyrical genius & top-notch mom Carmen Bryan gave her opinion on this track.



    Classic Song!!!!

    I love this song. Cant wait to buy the album
