’12 Best Singles: #3 Nas “Daughters”

Nas’ seed is a big girl now. And for his single “Daughters”, he reflects on his own child’s growth and development. Backed by No I.D.’s soul samples, Esco  evaluates his parenting skills with honesty (“Plus she’s seen me switching women, pops was on some pimp shit”), confusion (“One day she’s ya little princess, next day she talking boy business”) and even a lil’ regret (“I’m too loose, I’m too cool with her”). Carmen would disagree, but hey, father knows best.

    Glad to see this made the list. Now THIS is an example of a song with a positive message AND a good song, not that Lupe BS.

    It’s a little high on the list though…but I’m not gonna hate.

  • Dashing

    @the brain trust, you’re the one who’s on his dick. Ignorant motherfuckers think that they’re smart cause they dickride a semi-deep song that’s some oversimplified BS. Nas knows how to write a real song repping women.

  • Da Business

    Thought u guys were going to shit on Nas.

  • Wil o
