I cannot wait until his album “Life Is Good” drops on the 17th!!! On this track he tells the story of his marriage to Kelis.
ARTISTdirect.com sat down with legendary rapper Nas for our exclusive “See the Music” series. We asked Nas about his new single “Daughters” from the forthcoming Life Is Good due out July 17. It’s a contemplative ode that retains his signature hard edge.
Speaking of the song, Nas said, “It is the type of sound that I need and I love.”
Having a daughter impacted him greatly, and it’s informing his music. He said that fatherhood “did change my life. It made me more aware of the world and what kind of society we live in, as I am about to see a child grow up into it. Wow.”
He continued, “There is something about women, your mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, daughter. Women are amazing, and the fact that I am responsible for a little one, man… that meant a lot to me to talk about that. It was rough, though. When I did the video, it was emotional.”
He talks about the creation and genesis of the beat, as well. So it’s a full-service “See the Music” where he tells us everything. WATCH THE FULL INTERVIEW
Just in case you haven’t watch the VIDEO enjoy!!!
Nas has been one of my most favorite rappers since I started listening to hip-hop…which now feels like ions ago. Let’s just say 10+ years ago!!! I might have to make it to ROCK THE BELLS this year, I haven’t been in about 4 years but NAS is performing & it’s well worth the HEAT!!!
