Nas has announced his first children’s book, I Know I Can. Taking its name from the song “I Can,” off the rapper’s 2002 album God’s Son, the book will be part of a children’s series

“empowering kids to be whatever they want to be when they grow up.”

I Know I Can arrives via Mass Appeal’s new MAJR (Mass Appeal Junior) children’s line, which aims to 

“inspire future generations through the creation of unique toys, apparel, and innovative learning tools.”

Nas said 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 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.”

Nas will be hitting the road this summer on a co-headlining tour with Mary J. Blige. In May, the pair released a collaboration titled ‘Thriving‘.

See the book’s cover below and stay tuned here for more updates on the development.
