Jay-Z’s daughter Blue Ivy is only a week old and she’s already making a big influence on the rapper’s life. The Empire State Of Mind hitmaker has released a poem stating that he’s no longer using the word “bitch” in his songs.
He 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.”
He adds: “I never realized while on the fast track that I’d give riddance to the word bitch / to leave her innocence intact. No man will degrade her, or call her name / I’m so focused on your future, the degradation has passed.”
Right after Beyoncé gave birth to Blue Ivy on January 7 – Jay-Z went to record and release Glory, feat. B.I.C. The song features sounds of the baby crying and instantly made it to the Billboard R&B/hip-hop hit list. The result has made the newborn the youngest artist to ever make the prestigious chart.
