Nas went on the Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday night to perform the song “Daughters” from his album Life Is Good.
It was a virtuoso performance from one of rap’s greats. As we have written before, on “Daughters” Nas delves into the pain he had to endure when his teenage daughter put up on Instagram a picture she took of a box of condoms on her dresser, saying, “At this point I realized I’m not the strictest parent, I’m too loose, too cool with her.”
Nas throws out a line that every Dad can identify with when he says, “One day she’s your little princess, the next day she’s talking boy business.”
“They say the coolest players and the foulest heartbreakers in the world, God gets us back—he makes us have precious little girls,” he raps toward the end of the powerful single, the third from his album, Life Is Good.
