Jay-z speaks out on Blue Ivy Carter
Posted on 7:40pm Tuesday 17th Jan 2012
Multi-millionaire rapper Jay-z has stated he will cease to use the word b**** after the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. In the song he made shortly after the birth of Blue Ivy, about Blue Ivy, called Glory he rapped:
“Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich, I didn’t think hard about using the word b***h. I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it. Now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it”. He also goes on to say “No man will degrade her, or call her names”.
It’ll be hard for Jay-z to omit this word from his vocabulary as he was raised in Marcy Heights, New York, and it may come as second nature to him due to this, and it has been a constant word throughout the lyrics in his songs since he started rapping. Hopefully the incentive of protecting his new-born daughter will be enough motivation for him to refrain from using the word, and then other rappers and singers might realize it’s not necessary or cool to use it.
Beyonce has recently spoken out about the birth, saying that “Nothing can describe the feeling” and going on to mention that former fellow Destiny’s Child star and X-factor judge Kelly Rowland cannot wait to babysit Blue Ivy.
Speaking on how good of a father she thinks Jay-z will be she stated “ He is a very protective and loyal guy by nature. He is a very protective husband, and since we found out I was pregnant I have seen the protective father in him. He is not only an inspirational artist, he is an inspirational husband. I know the next step on his journey is going to be being an inspirational father.”
