We Love This performance of “Daughters” Live on The Colbert Report 7/17/2012
There was and always has been alot of discussion about his domestic affairs. here in this interview he discusses his divorce and his relationship with Kelis and his big as child support check.
Now we think we understand what that tune is all about. Obviously it about his daughter Destiny. How clever you are Nasir (smdh) to use your newest cd to voice your feelings about the women in your life. Maybe he never realized that he is a reflection of who they are as well.
Hmmmmmm.. How Bout thinking bout that one Mr. Jones ?

He had to understand that if you make money you have to take care of your children. He’s a major figure and they are a part of his status. Now that he has to fess up, alot of his business seems to make him uncomfortable. We wonder if that’s why he’s serving up all that tea on this new cd. he says “Love is a Beast”. Damn Right Esco, Damn Right.
Maybe That was why Kelis sang “I Hate You So Much” . Damnnn…
Upon releasing his new album, Life is Good, Nas spoke about the growth he’s experienced between his first and latest projects. The QB emcee spoke with Fuse about the changes he’s seen in himself within those years and how he went from saying “life’s a bitch” to “life is good.”
When asked what he would change about his debut album, 1994′s Illmatic, Nas revealed something he had difficulty expressing before. He acknowledged that while he couldn’t always say this to himself, he felt the album was “perfect.”
“Nothing,” he said of what he would change on the disc. “It’s nine songs on there. The intro makes it ten but it’s only nine songs. I think it’s a perfect record. It’s a perfect record. I couldn’t say that before but there are so many different dynamics to it.”
Nas then went on to explain how elements from that album have influenced several others, including his photograph on the front of the disc, a trait seen on other projects since.
However, beyond that, he also spoke on the changes he has experienced through the years. He noted patience as something he’s learned more about with time. He also shared that his children have had a resounding impact on him since the release of his first album, one that featured songs like “Memory Lane (Sittin’ in da Park)” and “Life’s a Bitch,” a track he referenced in this interview while taking a short trip back in time.
“Back then, I said, ‘Life’s a bitch.’ Today I say, ‘Life is good.’”
The saying references his album title, of course. So Nas was asked about how he’d rate Life is Good, released this week.
“Life is Good is excellence. I would say it’s Hip Hop excellence and I realize how much better I could have made it so now I’m in a zone.”
The video for the interview can be seen below:
We also noticed that Mr Jones is still a bit saltier with the former Mrs. Jones, than anyone else on earth. Everyone can see that clearly because he is holding her dress on the cover of this cd. They’ve been divorced for a good while now; so this is absolutely .. SHAAAAAAAAAAADE .

Nas says that he’s yet to hear from Kelis after featuring her green dress on his latest album cover.
Earlier this week, Nas unveiled the cover art of his upcoming album Life is Good, releasing July 17th. The image shows Esco perched on a black sofa with a green dress draped across his knee, assumed to be that of his ex-wife Kelis. During an interview with Rap-Up.com, the veteran rapper explained the meaning behind the image, stating that he’s exposing his life on the cover.
“Life, love, joy, anger, celebration. There’s so many things you can see on that album cover. You see my life. My life is on that album cover,” he said, noting that he hasn’t heard from Kelis since the image was revealed. “We just put it out, so it’s still way too fresh. [I'll hear from her] eventually at some point.”
“My mindset was to pull out a side of me that people haven’t heard in a while and give ‘em that feeling that they haven’t felt in a while—a feeling that I love. And some of that feeling is ’90s-esque, some of that feeling is 2015. It’s just a feeling that I feel to be a timeless sound. So I just let it flow.”
