Just days after wife Beyonce Knowles gave birth to his daughter Blue Ivy Carter, Jay-Z has a new problem to go with his 99 others. He’s no longer going to say “b****.”
In a poem featured in NME, Jay-Z writes of his plans, “Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich/I didn’t think hard about using the word b****. I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it/Now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it.”
The rapper’s extensive catalog features countless utterances of the “B-word.” So what this means in terms of how he performs such “b****”-filled tunes as “B****es & Sisters,” “That’s My B****,” and “99 problems,” that’s unknown. Perhaps he’ll replace it with a more pleasant insult or maybe he’ll bleep himself.
Jay-Z adds, “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.”
We must say, we wonder what word he would have gotten rid of if he and Beyonce had given birth to a boy.
