With Father’s Day right around the corner, Nas is giving props to all the dads that don’t get their due appreciation.
“Like Chris Rock said: All we fathers get is the big piece of chicken—if [we’re] lucky. We deserve the love” Nas exclaimed in his blog on GlobalGrind.com. “[And because] we don’t even expect it, we do what we do, regardless—with no signs of a reward for it. We put up with everything, standing true to what’s real and letting life take its course, protecting our household, our woman, our children [and] our family.”
This doesn’t mean that Escobar is begrudging moms of the love they rightly deserve, though. He just thinks it’s high time that fathers got some of that shine too. To kick things off right, he gave respect to the men that came before him.
“Shout out to my pops, a great man! Blessings to our granddads who came [before] us, who laid the seeds and the foundation,” he wrote. “I wish every dad [would take] a minute to look at [what] he’s done—just a minute. No need to glance too long. Just smile.”
And before signing off, Nas had a message for his baby boy. “Biggest shout to my son on the way! Salute! It’s a GREAT DAY,” he said.
