Nas is releasing a children’s book

Hip-hop titan Nas has announced his debut children’s book, titled I Know I Can. The book borrows its title from the rapper’s 2002 song “I Can” and is aimed at “empowering kids to be whatever they want to be when they grow up.”

Nas explained his motivations for penning the book in a statement:

“I’ve always understood the limitless power of young people, and being a father has brought it even closer to home. We’re introducing MAJR (Mass Appeal’s children’s line Mass Appeal Junior) to prepare today’s youth for tomorrow’s world. Our goal is to help children of all backgrounds fully realize their potential by tapping into their creativity in new and innovative ways.”

I Know I Can‘s release date has yet to be announced. Check out the cover art below:
