Nas' latest single, "Daughters," has been a hit with fans thanks to its heartfelt message, which comes from experiences with his daughter Destiny, but the track hasn't gone over so well with Destiny's mother. Carmen Bryan took to Twitter following the track's release to blast Nas for the picture he painted of their child.
"Just heard 'Daughters' by Nas. What a disappointment! He had nothing positive to say about our daughter and his depiction of her is false," Carmen Bryan wrote on Twitter Thursday after the song was released online.
Bryan's Twitter isn't verified, but MTV News was able to confirm through a source that the account in question does belong to Nas' ex. Now, this isn't the first time the MC has referenced his child on record; he first rapped about her on "The World is Yours," a single off of his 1994 debut albumIllmatic. On his 2004 double LP Street's Disciple, Nas lovingly sang of "daddy's little girl" on "Me & You (Dedicated to Destiny)," but "Daughters" has a distinctly different tone.
"I saw my daughter send a letter to some boy her age/ Who's locked up, first I regretted it, then caught my rage," God's Son rapped on the track's first verse.
On the second verse, the Queensbridge MC addressed the Februaryincident when the 17-year old Destiny showed off her condom collection on Twitter. "At this point I realized I ain't the strictest parent," Nas rapped, blaming himself for not spending enough time with her.
Bryan is no stranger to scandal. In 2007, she penned "It's No Secret," a tell-all book that detailed how her and Nas' relationship deteriorated and her affair with Jay-Z.
A label rep at Def jam, Nas' label wouldn't comment on the matter, but Nas did send out a special tweet to his little girl on Thursday. "I Love My Princess Destiny Jones," he wrote.
