23. Nas "Daughters" (2012)

23. Nas "Daughters" (2012)

Album: Life Is Good
Verse: Verse 2
Best Line: "A box of condoms on her dresser then she Instagram'd it."

Nas has always been a great story teller and lyricist but he hasn't always revealed too much about himself. He did a lot on his early work ("Aiming guns in all my baby pictures") but then moved away from acute personal details in his later work. That's why "Daughters" hits so hard, it hits close to home with Nas not only openly discussing his relationship with his daughter. Blogs had already picked up on his daughter posting pictures of condoms on Instagram so you knew what he was saying was true. Nas wasn't always a soul bearing artist (a la Eminem) but throughout Life Is Good he kept it one hundred.
