Nina B, takes on the instrumental of Nas’ “Daughters.” Nina recounts Nas’ influence on her and her chance meeting with Nas.
“Nas has always been such a big influence on my career in so many ways, meeting him a while back reaffirmed why I love painting portraits with words. Minutes before taking this picture for BET, Nas gave me advice which would be the proverbial polish to my diamond/gift. He told me to write from the heart and not from the head; besides “The heart knows more about beats, the head recalls events, but heart recreates the moments feeling.” Listening to “Daughters” vividly brought me back to that moment and this is what I recorded—enjoy”!
Nina B’s forthcoming LP collaboration with DJ Jazzy Joyce, “Titles Are Played Out.” will be released on 8-21-2012 and includes features by Action Bronson, Skyzoo and Dylan of ‘Making The Band.’
