Nas’ daughter, Destiny Jones, recently sat down with Teen Vogue to discuss life as a young entrepreneur, dating and a whole lot more.
A little over a year ago, Destiny launched her lipgloss line, Lipmatic, a play on her father’s classic album, Illmatic. It features 12 organic lip glosses which are available on their website, as well as Karmaloop. Destiny hopes to get more retailers to see her product in the future.
Destiny attended The Art Institute of California- Los Angles for fashion design but changed to business when her passion for it grew:
“I wanted fashion design to be my backup plan in case things don’t work out with this or that at least I’ll ave this under my belt. But after about two years my passion for it was not the same as my friends and classmates. I feel like when it coms to your dreams you have to take that leap or for the rest of your life you’ll wonder what would’ve happened if you would’ve went for it.”
When discussing her man:
“He’s the only guy Ive ever introduced to my dad and that side of the family. We’re both really nervous. So I was like, ‘I’m gonna take you to an event’. It was my dad’s event, but I figured that was the most un-awkward way to meet him because there’s going to be people and noise and stuff going on. It’s not an awkward dinner. So he came and my dad was actually real cool, real regular. We were happy because we were like that’s out of the way. It went so well. Then they very next day we went somewhere and my dad popped up. So it was two days in a row that he got to meet my dad, which we weren’t expecting. But it did go well. And my dad was really cool We were both like wow. Didn’t expect that to go so well.”
