Nas - "Daughters"

With tracks like "Nasty" and "The Don," it's clear Nas has no problem flexing his lyrical muscle in full-on, hard-hitting braggadocio fashion. Surprisingly, God Son flips the vibe on the heartfelt "Daughters", spending more time on rhymes about the awkwardness of parenting a teenage daughter as a single father than on Philly blunts or Jerome's niece getting shot in her dome piece on Jones Beach. No I.D., continuing his torrid batch of instrumentals from the excellent collection on Common's The Dreamer, The Believer, deserves plenty of props as well. Life is Good is out on July 17th.
