Father's Day is not too far away (in three weeks), so the message in Nas' video for "Daughters" is real important. In the end, what Nas is stating is that if fathers maintain a strong bond with their daughters it will help them build their self-esteem. The P.O.V.-styled clip was directed by Chris Robinson and features Nas' real-life 17-year-old daughter Destiny Jones. It's a great video for a great song. I wish more rappers would get more personal in their songs. The materialistic boasting is wearing me out.
Nas' tenth album Life Is Good is due out on July 17.
