Nas and director Chris Robinson bring “Daughters” full circle with the accompanying video. The clip transitions through the different periods in life for Nasir and his daughter Destiny, showing how his life as an artist affected her. Even though the track isn’t a traditional single, it’s an important one worth pushing since the song’s concept allows Nas to excel as a storyteller, incorporating deft details without being too heady. Even more, he’s shown as a dad, complete with the ups and downs, mistakes and life lessons.
Life Is Good is due out July 17th.
