Nas Vs. John Mayer Vs. Pearl Jam

Nas said it best: No idea’s original.Though the nasty MC’s “Daughters” single sounds refreshing in a climate seemingly void of substance, it’s not the first time an artist tackles the subject. Nearly 20 years ago, grunge Gods Pearl Jam released a song titled, “Daughter” as the second single to their multiplatinum Vs. LP. A little over a decade later, pop rock singer John Mayer released a track titled, “Daughters” as the third single to his Grammy Award-winning, Heavier Things. God’s Son is the latest to take on the topic. His single was released May 1st, and the song’s Chris Robinson-helmed visual hit the internet this past week. But, how does Nas’s latest gem compare to its cross-genres predecessors? XXL investigates.—Carl Chery (@cchery)
