Emo rapper Nas dropped a sentimental track titled "Daughters" off his upcoming album, Life Is Good.
On the track, Nas wonders aloud if his promiscuous 17-year-old daughter Destiny would have turned out better if he wasn't such a whoremonger himself. Didn't he teach his daughter to respect herself even as he rapped about disrespecting other men's daughters? Nas waxes poetic about lavishing cash and jewels on his kid instead of giving of his time (which is free).
“They say the coolest playas are foulest heart breakers in the world
God gets us back, he makes us have precious little girls”
And now he laments the fact that his grown daughter is posting pics of condoms on Twitter and pretty much advertising her goodies. Nas sounds like a man who's worried about having to support a daughter and a future grandkid. She's a chip off the old block, as old folks would say. "Daughters" was produced by No ID.
Destiny's mother, Carmen Bryant, was outraged that Nas (who is known to be an attention whore) basically called their teenager a slut on a record. She came out swinging on Twitter.com Wednesday, saying Nas should have allowed his daughter to hear the song first.
"I think he really didn't realize how the song would affect Destiny. He should have allowed her to hear if first," she tweeted in one message.
Read what Carmen had to say, and listen to the track, after the break.
Im a mother first, and if Destiny is upset about something-that makes me upset.
I think he really didn't realize how the song would affect Destiny. He should have allowed her to hear if first.
His short coming was humiliating her in public by rehashing the mistakes she has made via a song. Not right.
...humiliate our children on wax for the mistakes that they make. Who does that?
I didn't hear anything positive in that song.
That song was created b/c he felt like he owed his listeners an explanation. Period. And I don't.
He doesn't owe his fans an explanation with regard to what goes on with Destiny, she is his daughter not his artist. Period.
That's why he addressed. He cares what you guys think about him. That song was for YOU..not Destiny.
