Classified’s new self-titled album is dropping on Tuesday, Jan 22 and we couldn’t be more excited. In a new exclusive video, the Canadian rapper talks about one of his tracks called “Growing Pains,” which he says is lyrically one of the strongest and most personal songs on the album.
The track, which is dedicated to his two young daughters, goes through advice he wishes he had when he was younger.
“I wish sh*t I know now, I knew growing up because I would have done a lot of things different,” the rapper said. “You’re gonna go through heartbreak, you’re gonna go through people being mean, you’re gonna go through being cheated on. There’s just so many things in life that sucks. There are so many points in life that you’re like ‘ah I don’t want my kid to go through this.’”
He continued: “Really I just tried to be honest with her and tell her things I think she’s going to go through and try to prepare her for it.”
The song is one of the most honest tracks on his forthcoming album and thus, one of the most difficult to pen. We love that he really went there and sang on it!

A little early for Father’s Day but thoughtful nonetheless, rapper Nas released a single called “Daughters” dedicated to his brothers with daughters. The music video includes an appearance from his 17-year-old daughter Destiny Jones, plus a look back at their relationship. Instead of relating embarrassing baby stories to new boyfriends, Nas went full-parented and released a biographical music video for the whole world.
In the track, Nas admits to both his faults and disappointments as a dad and talks about his daughter’s evolution from an adorable princess to talking about boy business. He also raps about his daughter posting a scandolous photo on Instagram: “… she planted/ A box of condoms in 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.”
The track will appear on his upcoming LP, Life is Good.

“I think that would be really cool, and if anything, [we would] have them visit the set,” said Miley Cyrus to ‘Access Hollywood’ when asked about the possible appearance of the first daughters on ‘Hannah montana.’
“They are kind of like me before I started my own career,” Cyrus adds. “[They] are kind of put in it because their dad … so I would want it to be normal, and they could come hang out on the set with normal girls. I think that would be fun for them.”
“Hannah Montana: The Movie” is set to release on April 10, 2009 in the U.S. In the film, Miley Stewart Miley Cyrus) and her father, played by her real-life dad Billy Ray Cyrus, take a trip to their homeland of Crowley Corners, Tennessee.
The nasty custody war between Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen is still going strong. And the latest battle was won by Richards.
Richards has been offered a reality television show that would star her and her daughters, Sam, 3, and Lola, 2. Sheen refused to allow the children to be filmed, so Richards brought on the lawyers. A judge ruled Tuesday that Sheen’s power could be revoked in this matter, but TMZ.com reports there were certain, unknown restrictions.
This is a bitter blow to Sheen. A source for Extra said that Sheen found the reality show idea to be “exploitative of the children for the mother’s own vanity and greed.”
