Rapper Nas releases new song "Daughters," exposing his own personal struggles with "Rapper’s Karma"

Nas released a new song entitled “Daughters” this week. In the song he goes into some very personal details about his own daughter’s behavior. 

Apparently Nas' daughter Destiny was caught on Twitter tweeting pictures of her condoms (which she keeps conveniently by her bed) and making references to cocaine. The song also reveals that she may have a pen pal relationship with a man who is in jail.

I have long said that Karma for most black male rappers would be their young daughters. 15 to 20 years after the hip hop industry took a major turn for the worse (disgusting lyrics about women and putting drugs, money, sex and bling above everything) that prediction is starting to come true. The daughters of many of the world’s favorite rap stars are starting to come of age.

Take a quick look at the top rappers who have had some of the most vulgar lyrics defaming women and glamorizing the drug game -- most if not all of them have young daughters.

For instance, P. Diddy, Ludacris, Nelly, The Game, Snoop Dog, Lil Wayne, Jah Rule and now Jay Z.

Ironic aint it?

When these young girl children of rappers come of age, what do their rapper fathers think they are going to do? Join a church and sing in the choir? 

No, they are going to glorify sex, money and drugs just like their dads (and sometimes their moms) do. They are going to keep the cycle going.

Many rappers have soiled the black community with garbage music and lyrics that do nothing but destroy in the interest of making money. But they somehow assume that they themselves are untouchable, that they would never have consequences to what they’re spreading to millions of youth.

But as their daughters age they begin to get a wakeup call — hey this does affect me personally! I call it the Rapper’s Karma.

Black rappers: do you want to see your daughter called a bitch or a ho instead of a girl or woman? Do you want her to be named in a "harem of hos?" Do you want her to date a drug dealer and get into an emotionally or physically abusive relationship? Once these girls are grown the way that they choose to live their lives is largely out of your hands.

Ill say one thing about Nas... at least he has tried to speak truth and positivity in his music (i.e. I Can and What Goes Around). And at least he is man enough to admit publicly where he may have gone wrong.

    Rappers Karma...we are all going to suffer because of that. I think it started about 20 years ago too. They can't make up for it with one song and I hate it when people act like a rapper is redeemed because of one song given all the damage they have caused. I will never forgive them. I agree that their daughters will be pulled into the negative behaviour especially because their fathers are famous.

    The negativity of gangsta and anarchist rappers was more devestating to the black community than crack cocaine or Jim Crow.
    They are the authoritative warrant for America to hold blacks down and for whites to make all kinds of racist assumptions about us resulting in injustice, i.e., Trayvon.
    Slim Thug was shot dead over a piece of candy a week before Christmas 2011, Pimp-C died in a hotel 4 years ago and the one from Tu Wang Crew also died about 3 years ago from cocaine so karma's GPS is functioning.

    Thank you for your comment. BTW I think it was another rapper with a similar name in that candy dispute.

    Hello Elegance

    Yes you are correct, they should not be able to get away with years of spreading garbage with one redeeming song. They should be out in the community actively trying to fix what they broke.
