In April, Nas released "Daughters," the first single off his album Life Is Good, which focuses on the challenges of raising kids. It was a great song that spoke about a not-so-great real-life situation. Two months prior, Destiny Jones, his 17-year-old with Carmen Bryan, had people talking about certain tweets she posted.
"Keep dis cute lil box on my nightstand. My home girls know what I keep in it. Can yu guess? Lol" captioned the photo of the closed box, followed by a look inside: a collection of condoms. Shortly after, Destiny showed off her new Mercedes named "Cocaine."
On "Daughters" Nas rhymes, "She's on Twitter, I know she ain't gon post no pic/Of herself underdressed, no inappropriate shit, right/Her mother cried when she answered/Said she don't know what got inside this child's mind, she planted/A box of condoms on her dresser then she Instagrammed it/At this point I realized I ain't the strictest parent/I'm too loose, I'm too cool with her."
In his Complex cover story, Nas admitted that raising kids is tougher than he ever imagined. We can only hope that little box is long gone now.
