Nas And His Father Olu Dara Star In Gap Ad
Nas has long paid tribute to his dad Olu Dara Jones, and just in time for the holidays, father and son have come together for the new Gap campaign, Love Comes In Every Shade.
The duo fittingly appear on the advert titled, Fatherly Love, which will be displayed in Gap stores around the globe, but Nas also posted the ad on Twitter writing, “Me & Pops for The Gap. #LifeisGood.” Other big names set to appear in the Gap ad include Michael J. Fox, Jack Huston, Rufus Wainwright, and Francis Ford Coppola.
With two children of his own, God’s Son is very much a family man. Over the summer the 39-year-old revealed that he was working a song inspired by 3-year-old son, Knight, whom he shares with ex-wife, Kelis. “I’m doing a song for my son next,” he told XXL.“I already got half the first verse finished.”
Aside from recording new music, the Queensbridge rapper is embarking on his Life Is Good tour/Black Rage tour, with Lauryn Hill. After wrapping up the show in Philly yesterday, Nas and Ms. Hill are set to invade the Upstate Concert Hall in Clifton Park, N.Y., Friday (Nov. 9).
