Jay-Z is done with the b-word after birth of his daughter
OMG! Enlightenment. Apparently Jay-Z never thought that it might bother his wife, his female relatives, his female aquaintances or, you know, half the population of the world that he flung the word "b-tch" around. But now that HE'S had a daughter EVERYTHING has changed. BUT WAIT! THERE'S MORE! The sudden bolt of insight that hit him and made him see the error of his ways, also means that he "curses" everybody else who continues to use the word. I love it when a sinner sees the light and self-congratulates in public. But now comes the hard work: Finding new rhymes for "itch" and "twitch" and "snitch" and "witch" and "recent converts are frakking annoying." MTV has this:
"Jay-Z has vowed to never use derogatory terms for women in his music again following the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy Carter. The rapper, who welcomed his first child with wife Beyoncé last weekend, has stated in a poem to celebrate the birth of baby Blue Ivy that he will drop the use of 'b*tch' - revealing that his degradation of women in his songs "has passed." According to NME, Jigga's poem reads: "Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich/ I didn't think hard about using the word b*tch/ 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 hip-hop icon continued: "No man will degrade her, or call her name. 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."
