Nas - Daughters (Official Music Video)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: On the rigid list of Hip Hop acts of high treason, any admission of human frailty, vulnerability or emotion by an artist (NOTE: That is with the always acceptable and, indeed, encouraged exception of aggression) ranks only 2nd to the grand daddy of ALL punishable offenses: Snitchin'. However, when your name is Nas and your historically hefty catalogue of genre defining hits have afforded Y.O.U. the rare luxury of some HIGHLY generous creative elbow room, there is no need for Y.O.U. to play it safe - with regard to subject matter or otherwise.

Listen, we all know that for all of Nasir's towering lyrical genius that he has been - particularly during this latter part of his career - mercilessly plagued by his own poor life and musical choices. And THAT *Cue Chingy Voice* "Right Thurr" is precisely what makes this unflinchingly honest and introspective "Daughters" song so great! Accountability is what's really real my nigga. Bravo Queensbridge's Finest! Bravo! #LifeIsGood
