Video: Nas – ‘Daughters’

Nas

Nas reminisces on raising his daughter in the personal video for “Daughters,” the No I.D.-produced single off his upcoming album Life Is Good, due July 17. The Chris Robinson-directed clip is visualized through the eyes of his 17-year-old daughter Destiny Jones—from her third birthday party to her high school years to getting into trouble with boys.

“I think that this song for Nas is so personal, everything in the song is real, that he wanted to share this moment with his fans, with the world, and it was actually his suggestion,” Robinson told MTV News. “I was ready to cast someone, and he was real calm and said, ‘Hey, Dest is gonna be here, I think we need to keep it real.’”

See Nas experience the ups and downs of fatherhood.

    I love this video. It really tells the true story. Infect he talks about to give a promise to all the fathers out there to take care of their Daughters from what his daughter did.

    You gotta respect Nas. He does what he wants and still respected in the game for 21 years. Doesn’t sell many records, but has a loyal following that keeps him going. Look at all the rappers that used to sell alot and where are they now? Any rapper would love to have his career.
