Media sources report the clip will feature Nas’ own daughter Destiny as the star. With Destiny on board, the video takes a more personal turn as Nas chronicles the father-daughter relationship they have through Destiny’s eyes.
“Right off the bat, he really loved the idea of the P.O.V.,” the video’s director, Chris Robinson, recently shared with MTV News, adding that Nas himself made the call to cast Destiny in the video. “I think that this song for Nas is so personal, everything in the song is real, that he wanted to share this moment with his fans, with the world, and it was actually his suggestion. I was ready to cast someone, and he was real calm and said, ‘Hey, Dest is gonna be here, I think we need to keep it real.’ ”
The “Daughters” video comes amid the release of Nas’ forthcoming album, Life is Good. The “Daughters” song, which finds the rapper admitting to his faults and disappointments as a father, will appear on the LP.
