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.

In advance of his debut album Paradise, Cody Simpson is throwing you one with his free mixtape Angels & Gentleman. His first LP isn’t coming out for another month so this is supposed to tide you Angels over until then.
The 15-year-old Aussie shows off his eclectic taste with this mix, which includes Chris Brown’s “Beautiful People” and Rihanna’s “You Da One.” Although the covers aren’t really re-imagined, you can’t deny he has a velvet voice.
