Nas worked with video director Chris Robinson for his latest video “Daughters.” This ones for the men that actually take the time to help raise their little girls, and the girls that sometimes make questionable choices because of the lack of guidance from their fathers. The Don made an interesting choice by deciding to tell the story from the perspective of his real daughter Destiny. Nas was inspired to write the song earlier this year after his daughter shared a photo of a bowl of condoms on her instagram and a new white Mercedes Benz that she affectionately named, ‘Cocaine’. He felt it was time to speak up about her behavior and his shortcomings as a father.
The video shows Nas helping Destiny take her first steps, celebrating her 3rd birthday, watching her dad talk to a girl on the street, watching him record in the studio with studio chicks and her getting into trouble with boys and the internet. His daughter also makes an appearance at the end of the video. I like this one…what do you think??
