Nas Relives Problems He Faced as a Father in 'Daughters' Music Video


The fresh clip for his latest single off 'Life Is Good' is told through the eyes of the 'Street Dreams' rapper's real-life daughter, who is making a cameo appearance at the end.

Nas is going personal with the music video for his latest single, "Daughters". Premiered on MTV Jams Sunday, May 27, the brand new clip takes a look at the "Hate Me Now" rapper's trials and tribulations of being a father to his daughter, Destiny Jones, from the day she was born until she becomes a teenager.

Directed by Chris Robinson, the video is told through the eyes of Destiny, who is making a cameo at the end. "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.' "

Putting Nas' parenting skills under the spotlight, the three-minute video is opened with the sound of a baby crying, before Destiny's name and date of birth are being displayed. The 38-year-old MC later clarified, however, that there is a mistake on the birth date. "Sorry about the Bday mix up at the start of Daughters video, editor got it wrong. Destiny's Bday is June 15," he tweeted.

"Daughters" comes from Nas' upcoming tenth studio album, "Life Is Good", which will hit the shelves in the United States on July 17.
