Nas Is Releasing A Powerful Children's Book

"I Know I Can" Is Meant To Inspire

June 23, 2019

Can we go back to February of 2003? This is when Nas gave us an inspiring anthem for us to sing to. "I Know I Can," became an immediate hit that we all memorized.

Fast forward to June of 2019, 16 years later and the song has now inspired Nas in a whole new way. This time around, Nas is bringing the song alive in the form of a beautifully written children's book. The announcement was made through the rapper's social media pages and was received with a lot of love. Artists like Swizz Beats were found in the comment sections (who has two small children with Alicia Keys) applauding the book. 

The the book's purpose is to empower kids to be who and what they want to be.
