Nas – Daughters (prod. No I.D.)

some classic sounding Nasir with an ode to daughters and the challenges of being a single father. No I.D comes through once again with a gritty soulful beat suiting the concept perfectly. “Life Is Good” drops July 17th.  

I’m feelin’ this song.

Although…I can’t exactly turn off my “critical” switch. There’s still that patriarchal double standard when it comes to raising sons vs. daughters. Nas says it himself:

When he date, he straight, chip off his own papa
When she date, we wait behind the door with the sawed off
Cause we think no one is good enough for our daughters

Darla and Alfalfa are all grown up. Crazy.
