She can’t talk or walk or crawl yet, but eight-year-old baby Blue Ivy Carter’s got her famous daddy wrapped tightly around her finger.
Ace Show Biz reported that in honor of his new daughter, Jay-Z has vowed to never use the b-word again.
In a poem, the “N--gas in Paris” singer wrote:
"Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich/I didn’t think hard about using the word b---h," he wrote. "I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it/Now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it."
According to the New York Daily News, the 42-year-old also writes that he’s going to be one protective father.
"No man will degrade her, or call her names. 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."
This isn’t the first dedication he’s written to his first child. Last week he released a song called “Glory, featuring B.I.C” that included sounds of his daughter’s cries.
Four days later, Blue broke records when it debuted at No. 74 on Billboard’s R&B/hip-hop hit list. She is now officially the youngest artist to land on the list.
Doesn’t seem very fair, but who knows, maybe she’ll be able to validate that record with a successful singing career in the near future.
