Nas just released a new track called “Daughters”, like an hour ago, for his new record “Life Is Good” due out July 17. The track revolves around a scandal that broke back in February when his 17-year-old daughter Destiny Jones tweeted a photo showing off some condoms by her bed.
This track hits to the core of family values via Nas’ personal experiences as a father. Explaining that kids grow up fast and money can’t buy a daughter’s love. He goes onto to say that you’ll trip out when your girl starts dating and goes after the kind of guy you used to be. Discipline is key if you want them to respect family, their future and their body.
This morning, I got a call, nearly split my wig. A social network said Nas, go and get ya kid. She’s on Twitter, I know she ain’t gon’ post no pic. Of herself underdressed, no inappropriate shit, right? Her mother cried when she answered. Said she don’t know what got inside this child’s mind, she planted a box of condoms on the dresser, then she Instagrammed it. At this point, I realized, I ain’t the strictest parent I’m too loose, I’m too cool wit’ ‘er. Shoulda drove on time to school wit’ ‘er. I thought I dropped enough jewels on her. Took her from private school, so she could get her balance. To public school, they too nurture teen talents. They grow fast, one day she’s your little princess. Next day, she’s talkin’ boy business, what is this? They say the coolest players and foulest heartbreakers in the world. God gets us back, he makes us have precious little girls.
