Jay-Z Chokes up While Talking About Blue Ivy: Video
While discussing a new song off his Magna Carta Holy Grail album, “Jay-Z Blue,” the rapper explains to his producer Rick Rubin that the toddler is “something that we both created. We still marvel at her.”
Adding that his father was not a part of his life growing up, Jay continues, “He didn’t teach me how to be a man, how to raise a child, how to treat a woman. So of course, my karma, the two things I need I don’t have … and I have a daughter.”
After he laughs at his luck, he gets serious and takes a moment before he can continue talking, although Jay still holds back tears. “It’s the paranoia about not being a great dad …”
Magna Carta Holy Grail, which also features collaborations Justin Timberlake and Beyonce, will be available for Samsung users on July 4 and everyone else three days later.
