Jay-Z Says He Won’t Use the B-Word Following Birth of Daughter
According to NME, the Brooklyn MC has vowed not to use the word “Bitch” anymore now that he’s the proud parent of a baby girl —at least that’s what he expressed via a poem he recently wrote.
In the poem, Hov writes, “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.
“No man will degrade her, or call her name,” he continues. “I’m so focused on your future, the degradation has passed. I wish you wealth, health and insight. Forever young you may pass. Blue Ivy Carter, my angel.”
The daughter Jay-Z and Beyoncé birthed on Saturday (January 7) became the youngest person to receive credit for a charting song as her wailing cries appear on Jay’s recently-released track, “Glory.” Billed as “featuring B.I.C.,” the abbreviation of Blue’s full name, “Glory” entered the Jan. 21 R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 74, the highest new entry on the chart this week. —Mariel Concepcion (@mceezy)
