Nas, the infamous rapper from Queensbridge, has made a career off of his words in music.

Now, the self made artist is expressing himself outside of his music.

In the interview (below) Nas expands on what his upcoming album means personally for him, and the daughter who he loves desperately.

Here's what he said:

“This is the first time I’m dealing with a teenage daughter, and it blows me away. I don’t know that you’re ever prepared to be a parent. Once you become one, that’s your responsibility. ['Daughters' is] more like me talking to myself, about how I could have been there a lot more. I beat myself up for not being the best I could be. I would ask her: ‘Am I a cool dad?’ or ‘Am I a good dad? Did I [mess] up?’ And she would say, ‘Nah, you’re good.’ That’s important to me because I started as a teen. I was around 19 when her mother was pregnant. My daughter means a lot to me. It’s just a record that came from the heart.”

When asked the question - what’s the most important thing that you want to teach your son about women?


Nas said:

“He has to have his own life. My experience could be the wrong thing for his life and what’s ahead of him. A lot of older people are giving the worst advice, based on the problems they had. I’m going to need him to tell me what to do. That’s what I’m looking forward to. If I’m here, we’ll talk. If not, he’s going to figure it out on his own. He’ll take his mother’s words, he’ll take my words, and then there’s the truth. Whatever he feels, he’s got to go with his heart, and be a man in every occasion.”

Amazing stuff.

So true that your kids should try and live their own lives instead of emulating their parents'.

Everyone's different.

Even families.
