Jay-Z Says B-Word Poem is ‘Fake’

Jay-Z is surely going to make sacrifices in the wake of his new baby girl, Blue Ivy, however the B-word will not be one of those, as previously thought.

On Tuesday (January 17), a poem that was supposed penned by the rapper, hit the net, and it read: Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich/I didn’t think hard about using the word bitch/I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it/Now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it.

But, as touching as the poem was, it appears Jay didn’t actually write it.

“That poem and story are fake,” Jay-Z, who is reportedly hosting a grand re-opening of his New York City 40/40 Club today alongside wife Beyoncé, told the New York Daily News.

The first publication to report on the poem, Rolling Out, did not have any publication sources for the poem. Those close to the rapper have not confirmed or denied its authenticity.

The only official release from Jay-Z since the birth of his child is the single “Glory,” which features cries from the newly born and made Blue Ivy the youngest person to ever appear on a Billboard chart.

In related news, a New York City designer has filed an application to trademark Blue Ivy Carter’s name for a line of children’s clothing.

On January 11 — four days after Blue Ivy Carter’s birth — Joseph Mbeh filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office seeking a mark for “Blue Ivy Carter NYC,” reports Thesmokinggun.com. Mbeh’s trademark application was allegedly filed without consent or knowledge of parents Jay-Z and Beyoncé. —Nicholas Sella

    When I first read this story about Jay-Z opting not to use the “B*tch” word again, I knew it was fake. It didn’t make sense.

      I thought it was kind of a stupid thing to say..didn’t sound like Jay-z..Jay-Z knows what a fucking baby is I don’t think it’s going to make him soft.

      And he’s serious about his craft, how are you gonna diss niggas back or go hard on a song if you can’t use words like “bitch nigga” or refer to men as “lil bitches” as he does…and as soon as he say “bitch nigga” all the white critics who don’t listen to hip hop will say “there he goes again”

      I can def co-sign Jay, that’s not a Jay-z move…Jay-Z don’t do stupid shit like that.

      Paul Mooney said he would never say “Nigger” again, look how long that lasted.
