Nas put his devotion for his daughter Destiny in his raw, emotional song Daughters. This Friday, he’s also making the day for other people’s daughters in Queens, New York with the 8th Annual Bratz Doll Drive. The drive, which is being put together by Saving Our Daughters, honors Iliss Benjamin, the daughter of SOD founder Curtis Benjamin, who lost her battle to cancer.

Bratz dolls were Iliss’s favorite, and it was important to Nas that there be a drive in Queens, because it's his hometown. The recent onslaught of Hurricane Sandy made putting a drive there all the more important.
Before taking part in the holiday drive, Nas spoke exclusively to MTV Act about his involvement with Saving Our Daughters, the meaning behind his song Daughters, and what his own daughter has taught him.
