Hip-Hop Rumors: Nas’ Song “Daughters” Outrages His Baby Mama, She Goes Off On Twitter

A few months back, Nas’ daughter Destiny instagram’ed a photo of a box of condoms on a nightstand by her bed. She is only 17 years old. This glimpse into her young life had the tell-tale signs of a “Black girl lost.” Nas chose to address these issues and others in his new track, “Daughters”, in which he blames himself for not being more involved in his child’s life. Take a listen to the track below:

His ex-girl and the mother of his daughter, Carmen Bryant, was not very happy with the song and decided to air her grievances on Twitter. Carmen ended up engaging in various verbal back and forths with Nas’ fans, and it was not pretty.

Check out what Carmen tweeted below:

She went into further details saying the following:

“I’m a mother first, and if Destiny is upset about something-that makes me upset.
I think he really didn’t realize how the song would affect Destiny. He should have allowed her to hear if first.
His short coming was humiliating her in public by rehashing the mistakes she has made via a song. Not right.
…humiliate our children on wax for the mistakes that they make. Who does that?
I didn’t hear anything positive in that song.
That song was created b/c he felt like he owed his listeners an explanation. Period. And I don’t.
He doesn’t owe his fans an explanation with regard to what goes on with Destiny, she is his daughter not his artist. Period.
That’s why he addressed. He cares what you guys think about him. That song was for YOU..not Destiny.”

Nas said the following in a recent interview with XXL Magazine regarding the song:

“She’s my first kid, my first time watching a child become a teen and a little adult before my eyes,” he continued. “That’s one of the most important things in my life: she is. I can’t get away from talking about it. It’s actually one of the first songs I recorded for this album.”

“Daughters” is Nas’ latest single from his upcoming LP, Life Is Good, slated to drop July 17. Do you think Nas is wrong for speaking about his relationship with his daughter in the track?

    I mean… Hov use to leave condoms next to her baby seat… now that she’s grown, she keeps some by the nightstand… no biggie

    Hey… Carmen is like that red wine…

    • Adrian Barron

      llamf … niggah you cray

  • Eli Pinilla

  • NCcatsBALLhard

    It’s 2012 and you still losing Nas?

    • SDS_Overfiend

      You sound like the Biggest loser to Me Homie……

      • NCcatsBALLhard

        and you sound like a lame that caught feelings..choke yourself wit a used rubber..

      •  I guess your mama didn’t teach you, “If you can’t say something nice…”  What exactly is losing?  Even Nas and Jay have squashed it, let it go bruh…

      • NCcatsBALLhard

         Who said shit about Nas n Jay? He admitted he wasn’t there for his daughter and ANY man not there for their seed LAUCE…

  • Dreek Luciano

    I don’t think he’s wrong for the song. He also addressed some of his short-comings as a parent, saying that he should’ve drove her to school more often and that he was too “cool” with her and that he should’ve been stricter. I think the song attacks himself more than it does his daughter, and its a song that any man raising a girl could appreciate. Carmen should be doing her role as a parent and not leaving condoms on the baby seat with Jigga

    • vibetvAJ


  • i want to say he should be thankful that she’s using protection but damn..thats still his lil girl broadcasting details about her ‘sex life’ to the world through social media.. respect to all the men raising daughters cuz lord knows that shit aint easy, especially these days.. song is dope by the way

    • Casor_Greener

      She shouldn’t have been a hoe. 

  • aint that the same chick that let jay z leave a used condom in her baby seat?

  • He could have sung about many things but he chose his daughter because he loves her and want to see her take the right direction and also at the same time accepting responsibility for his bad parenting.This is a very positive song and his baby mama and daughter should take to heart what he has got to say and appreciate that  he is ready to accept full responsibility of his daughter’s actions , not many would do that

  • Zino

    nas killed it carmen quit hating as a “Nigga witha Daughter” I felt that shit deeply…

  • Song was not bad at all. The mom just taking an opportunity to get in the light.

  • Akil Black

    Much respect for this song! These days our babies out here wildin, and in most cases its us, the parents who leading them astray. We need this song to reminds us its on us to teach and train our seeds down the right path and be a example for them. In most cases our babies immulating what they see and hear in their own households. Our women dressing, talking behaving foul, and us men aint helping the situation either. Turn these so-called bs reality shows off. Our babies watching that bs and think its fly to behave and act like them lost sistas…One

  • She can’t say anything about that. That photo with the condoms was the dumbest thing ever, and Nas reacted correctly.

  • She wasn’t thinking about her kid when she wrote that “Superhead-type” book. FOH with this.

  • he was not wrong any man who has a daughter at a young age can truly relate. btw love the song

  • illymac

    Destiny publicly embarrassed herself and her father,
    and Nas publicly disciplined her..

    he aint say anything outrageous..
    Good song in my opinion..

    coming July17,2012

    • Lord Saltsworth McGinty III

      Exactly! She will think twice before doing something like that again.

  • Juan Spin Serrano


  • mrgibson

    Lol@this skeeo acting holier than thou so she can get some shine.  Nas is a real dude and gives insight on shit a lot of dudes go through.  Having a little sister is enough for me.  I hope I never have a daughter lol

  • Sosa_Limone

    aint his baby moms the same one that got piped by jay and AI?? “Me and the boy AI got more in common than just ballin and rhyming… get it? more in Carmen?!” lol jay was wrong for that, but its still funny as hell

  • Terrence Nicholas

    Dont think it was that much revealing .. he talking some grown father shit… there isnt a perfectly raised daughter or son in this world. parents try hard to get their youngins on the right path … at 17 she’s going to be more aggressive with life … ups n downs and mistakes n alll i commend nas making such a record … i dont think it was done to hurt his daughter he just talking some real shit ….. Carmen is just being a drama queen by speaking out over this .. i say take the high road and fix it the matters out of the public

  • goldenboyb616

    there is nothing wrong with this song at all it true he wishes he was there if both of them would listen. thats love unconditional

  • Vikram662


    • Tha Bigchance

       Damn homie, u talkin wreckless about Nas daughter dawg calm ya ass down!

      • Vikram662

         Yeaaaaa that was pretty over the top.

  • Tha Bigchance

    It was a cool song I aint see no problem, if anything Carmen should add to a solution and stop trying to make a problem.

  • the record was maddd dope!
    one thing about Nas is that he speaks the truth, nothing is fabricated.
    shout out to No ID on the beat!

  • the song is hella tight and he venting his mind but i can kind of see where his moms coming from putting it out there like that. End of the day tho you cant post pics of condoms on facebook then get mad when people find out you posted condoms on facebook lol 

    • twistedboriqua

      And the moms act like her putting out a book looking for her 15 min of fame wasn’t wrong.

  • rep87

    She put more attention on the situation by tweeting he expressed  his failure and showed others how important  its is to be a real father in your children lives

  • Kev

    song is on point. 

  • David Gonz


    • Let it go, bruh. It’s been over 15 years. SMH.

    • twistedboriqua

      And Pac is the perfect example of when keeping it real goes wrong. Another black boy lost. Let it go man.

    • SDS_Overfiend

      The Nigga is Dead Bruh…That Hologram got you trippin’. That Nigga Just about as Dead as the West coast.. Just let it go Son…

  • SDS_Overfiend

    WOW so she dissapointed because he made a song expressing his remorse for not being there For his Daughter and the problems it caused.. So how you think he felt as a father seeing her take a pic half naked with a box of condoms in the background? Bitches ain’t shit.. She should’ve went off on her Daughter for doing that bullshit… But what do you expect from a bitch who fucked her baby father’s rival?

  • Freebe Jackson

    this carmen chick is a weirdo…..the song is about Nas being a cool hip parent trying to balance being a rapper and raise his daughter and now that she’s a teenager doing inappropriate things he  reflecting back on his short comings with raising, teaching  and spending more time with her…Typical stupid baby mom mad cause Nas like most fathers that aren’t dead beats are willing to admit where he went wrong and fell short but baby moms never willing to admit that….if the child is perfect and becomes a doctor the mom takes full credit and no matter what that dad has done he gets no credit but if the child gets in trouble and starts stripping or some ish then its all the dad fault…..Carmen admittedly slept around etc….did she think her daughter was dumb deaf and blind growing up watching her mom behave a certain way

  • YaheardSyndicate

    This song is great. Carmen just salty that everyone knows she was with Iverson, Jay-Z, and Nas at the same time and embarrassed her damn self by writing a book about it. We need more songs like this. This sure does beat all the B.S on the radio 

  • you got to have a daughter to understand the pain he felt thinking he did not teach her right take the leason and move on

  • digitallife

    Hold on this chick writes a book about affairs behind his back..disrespecting him, herself and her children and she’s got the nerve to complain when he mans up and admits his own faults on a track? Chicks are the biggest hypocrites and casualties of the “i’m a victim” excuse.

  • Guillaume Pilon

    carmen  just stfu

  • MildManneredReporter

    nas stay losing.


    he has his daughters mother and they daughter in on this scheme…all them mf’s that be on twitter…this could lead to some nice change from one song and a little farbricated drama to dress it in….great strategy…this boy aint no dummy…i wonder how many people listened to the song after reading this article.

    • immackulate

      that boy FADE …

  • GOOD fathers embarrass their kids, but as long as its 4 a good cause, and out of love. I see NOTHING wrong with this song. Most of the time when its just de mother n daughter, they become “sisters” n do watever they want. Do yuh thing Nas, I would do the same!!!
