Jay-Z’s Surprise Gift to Blue Ivy Carter

If a father could do one thing to make the world a better place for his newborn daughter, what do you think it would be. World peace? Safer streets? Financial security? In the case of rapper and business mogul, Jay-Z since security and finances aren’t pressing issues for him and his family, and world peace is out of his control ther is a small change he can make that would have far reaching impact — stop using the word “b—-.”  Jay-Z is all to well aware of the influence his musics and his lyrics have on the actions and attitudes of youth here and over seas.  Check out Jigga’s letter to Blue Ivy Carter, he and wife Beyonce’s brand new baby girl.
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.
I never realized while on the fast track 
that I’d give riddance to the word bitch, to leave her innocence in tact.
No man will degrade her, or call her out her name
the women won’t despise her and call her the same.
I know it’s gonna miss me
cuz we been together like Nike Airs and crisp tees
when we all used to hang out front
singing 99 problems but a lady ain’t one.
Excuse me miss, can I be your mister
cuz I can tell the difference from a little girl and a sister,
She never grew up, her father left her alone
I promise not to talk like we used to
until Kingdom Come.
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.
The artists who keep us captivated with their ability to spit rhymes and for those men — boyfriends, husbands, and fathers too — who listen intently to the words and mimic them in thought and deed, will have to be vigilante about protecting their children from the insults which might be leveled their way. They especially can’t add to the denigration of a generation and the degradation of girls and young women. Think about your favorite celebrity who is or may become a parent. How would you like their letter to read? What would your letter say?
Thoughts?

Oh please, she's going to be called all kinds of Bs just like he did to other women and set the example for many men and women he had an influence over. Everybody wants to ” open their eyes” when the takes are turned. But he knew what the degrading stuff he says means, and his excuse wasn't being a kid. He's a grown man.

I agree with some of the others its good he changed, but he should have thought about not using the b word as a way of showing respect to all women. he came from a woman that should have made him not want to use that word

So, I guess it was okay to refer to your Mother, Aunts, Sisters, Cousin and wife as BITCHES, but not your daughter.....BItch Please! you should of been changed the game, but u knew that would mess with your change and since u was on ya paper chase, u had no problem callin women Bitches in their face.

P.s. I guess now is better than neva.

Good.
Never understood why rappers degrade women.

"And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women"
hazysin said…
This is one of the realest things ever written. People will call Jay-Z a hypocrite but that's is because they don't understand. How can he honestly say he loves his daughter if he doesn't respect her mother; His sister, aunt's and cousins? I used to say all me weren't shit. Then I birthed sons. I cant condemn them before they become men. He may not be able to control the tongues of every person but he can tame his own.

Awesome. Praise God and now the N word has to go too. It's time to design a better world all around cus it's goin down. Our God is pissed now. The Bible has opened its pages and emerged upon this Earth. I for one, know my worth. I will give back as much as I can to the one that gave to me. Peace to Jay Z.

I think that it is cool that he has this plan and goal for his daughter. Although it shouldn't have taken him having a daughter to realize that the word ain't nothing. He should've realized that when he married B or even before that.

I think it's admirable, but like many of you have already said...it shouldn't have taken him this long to recognize the negative connotation and implications of the use of the word in hip hop.

U dumb mothafkas... It took his daughter to stop using the word bitch because he doesn't want nobody disrespecting his own... So why not stop using the word?

Sweetlipssss said…
To be honest, Jay needs to see some of the things that are being said about his daughter because they are saying the name they gave her has to do with Illuminati. Very degoratory things are being said about a child that is only a few days old. And I dont know if this is a letter or a rap? Most first time parents write their letters differently. Talking about seeing their child born, what hopes and dreams they have for them, how much they will love and protect them. There has just been to much hype over this. It's kinda getting annoying..Sorry..

I agree with Anonymous 110%. its a nice and needed sentiment and i guess its never too late to take on positivity. but I too ask... what about OUR daughters that heard his lyrics?? do they not deserve the same respect as Blue and her mother? at any rate, congrats to you both Jay. *smile*

I have mixed feelings about this, either way it goes it is a positive movement so I love and respect him for it!On one hand I agree that he had a wife mother sister etc. before he had a daughter so why did it take him so long to realize that the word bitch has been demeaning to all women including the women that he loves? On the other hand, better late than never! If it took the birth of his daughter to open up another softer more compassionate side then so be it!I hope that his new found level of maturity and respect for women will start a movement in the rap game! If other rappers followed suit this could began to pave the way for us women to start gaining back respect from men. Rap music is so influential. The same way men have been influenced to degrade and mistreat women through lyrics we can turn it around and influence them to respect us. way to go JAY Z on being the first to make a change!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is bullshit. I don't buy it or believe it. He is wack. So he raised an entire generation of young boys to say BITCH (him and too short and chappel) and now he has a child and it's suppose to stop. You are ridiculous, I find it hard to believe that he just realized that this was a hurtful and degrating word. He has a momma. What did his wife just turn into a woman? Did she just come out of drag? So, no not accepting it. His daughter will be called out her name by the boys he raised, and she WILL ANSWER!He became rich off the word, stay true jackass. Your daughter is feed because you say BITCH. Keep keeping it real. I don't see chappel going all "loser" on us. It's too late, your a BITCH. and a BITCH lover. and you have a BITCH daughter. remember the term you love so much.

It doesnt matter WHEN he stopped.. its for the right reason, and its a positive step, that may influence thousands of people.. Why do you people on the internet have to be so negative about EVERYTHING.. "He shoulda been stopped using it", "he gotta mother sister aunt", etc. The man is making improvements within himself, and STILL you judge? The fuck you want him to do? Now if he kept using the word, yall hoes would still have something to say... Be happy that he's trying to better himself for his daughter.. And stop acting so high and mighty..This is a decision of a good man. Respect, Hov.

Well I still don't believe she is there baby due to the fact most women in the industry shown there stomachs from time to time in the spot lights. Like Mariah to name one, she was shown often of her baby bump asw well as Helle Berry. Now why on most talk shows it was shown that she sat and walked as if there was no strain on her back and I know for a fact she wouldn't be able to sit up straight on some steps that was posted on Wendy Williams show as she fronted out some footages of real pregnant womaen compared to Beyonce.

This is Beautiful!! I'll tell you my Hubs didn't change till we had our first daughter. Daughters really do chance a man for the better :)
Emotionally this a priceless moment for father and daughter.
Reality, I feel like if you are aware that your music and tour image is a role model to the youth all around the world, why does it take for you to have a daughter to stop using such inappropriate language. What about your wife, she should be upset that you didn't write her a letter stating you would stop referring to women as the "b" word. I just do not understand, does he not care about the young women or men that quotes his music, "I got 99 problems, but a b ain't one."

Some people stop smoking when they have kids, while others stop drinking or stealing or partying etc.......... what is the big funk about him stop cursing. Its like damn if u do and damn if u don't. I guess he can't please everyone. His main goal is to please his wife and his daughter and so far I take my hats off to him

First I will like to say Congrats to Jay & Beyonce. I know the baby is beautiful. I am happy that his daughter has a positive impact on Jay life and that is great. But on the flip side he once said in an interview that is his mom and sister hated that word but he told them that it was just entertainment. I understand changing for your daughter, I have two of my own, but your mom brought you into this world, which means you should have respected her wishes when she asked you not to that. I do respect your decision but in life you do reap what u sow. Got to keep it 100%!

Sweet Pea said…
I've never commented on this blog before but after reading this, I felt compelled. I think it's great that Jay has decided the birth of his daughter has helped him grow as an artist & will no longer use the word. But he's over 40yrs old & it shouldn't take this to raise his consciousness for one & two, I remember his concert at the garden where he performed w/ Bey & said "I know the difference between a b**** & a Bey", but since then, he's used the b**** to refer to his girl in more than one song. Contradiction. Lastly, he's waxing awfully poetic about his daughter & IF it's true that she's not his first, it must be devastating to any other child he's fathered, which at the end of the day makes him a hypocrite & not a man. Again, IF this is not his first child.

Omg he had a baby like everyone else in this world has done or is doing..OMg he is giving up the word B**** who cares and this is why i do not listen to his music.

When you have a child, especially your first born, and especially when a father has a daughter, life begans to look very different and old habits might come to a stop just because of your newborn child! So for all of you who are saying "it took him to have a baby to stop using the B word" you need to put yourselves in his shoes, or not just his shoes but the shoes of any new mother or new father! And if he wants to put his love for his baby girl out in the media then he damn sure can! He's an excited father so he's going to be writing a lot and saying a lot about her! The camera's were going to go hunt for pictures of Blue anyway regardless of how many songs or letters he writes, thats damn near inevitable. Congratulations Jay and B! Welcome to the world baby blue!

well its all sweet & nice but wow I'm a mommy of four so honestly I understand we want to change and do better things for our kids that is why we should practice r language better before we have kids. Did he forget he has a mom and a wife mother of his daughter she will grow up to hear that, but good job on not using that word now I guess its never to late... Congrat!!!

Good luck keeping your word and becoming a shining example for her sake. It's not going to be easy.

LOL is the best response to this or anything Jay-Z has to say other than rap. The man waited all this time to come to this conclusion? Where was this when he had his first daughter? Where was this when he was thinking of his mother early on? What about when he met and wed Beyonce? Ignorant indeed for his fans to applaud this lunacy and prop it to something it is not. This is nothing but an attention grabber from a man who is in his middle 40's. Oh really, my friend, you show enlightenment now? LOl, indeed!
I think all y'all need to shut the fuk up about it taking jay this long to realize y'all should be happy he did maybe the future generation to come will realize it a lot earlier ... some of the people commenting probally use the word 1000 times a day .... that's why this generation now can't.lead the world in the future cause you still caught up on bullshit critisizm.... get a life y'all.... by the way ... CONGRADS JAY AND B

Calm down people!!! He's doing his job as a parent and shielding his daughter! We as consumers of Jay-Z, the rapper, have to do our job and shield our own children if we feel his music is degrading to women. How did you make a change? Good for him

Maybe he could quit making shitty music as a gift to the world, and send a mil or two to all the REAL parents that he and Beyonce deprived of seeing their newborns.

Let Me Say this... JZ...you and Beyonce...are the epitomey of ppl that have money and will go that extra mil to rub HONORABLE FOLKS in the face...Why did you buy a floor in a HOSp. to have you child for God sakes...you DIDNOT HAVE A PREMADONNA... I think my child is special and so did the other couples and mothers that had their babies was DENIED access...You need to come forward and apologize personally to each mother/family.. This is a reason why..the rich think MOney is what get you far...you AND BEYONCE are PATHETIC...GUESS YOU TRY TO OUT DUE YOUR OTHER UPPITY HOLLYWOOD CREATURES SO YOU PAY OVER $1.3 MILLION AND THE hOSPITAL TOOK THE BAIT.. i FAULT BOTH OF YOU...You and BEYONCE IS NOT GOD OR MOTHER MARY.....YOU SHOULDNOT HAVE HAD SOLD ACCESS TO A PUBLIC PLACE...WHERE OTHERS HAD RIGHT TO BE , SEE, AND LOVE THERE BABIES TOO....HOW SELFISH AND JUST A BLANTANT DISREGARD TO OTHER. JZ, YOU AND BEYONCE REALLY TURNED MY STOMACH..AS I READ YOUR LETTER.. you wrote in a song...You disrespect every other WOMAN, DAUGHTER, SISTER, MOTHER , AUNT..AND YET U GOT A DAM NERVER TO SAY...YOU WONT HAVE IT..IF SOMEONE SAY IT to yours...(guess we are self righteous now huh) a taste of your own medicine is enevitable...so brace your ears...because you will REAP WHAT YOU HAVE SOWN over the years. also I feel your's and B music should be boycotted.... Hoe you read the blogs and see what you and that hospital did is SHAMEFUL AND VERY DISGUSTING

Although I'm glad that they have a child and that they are happy to be parents. I've always loved JayZ as an artist. Beyonce not so much. But I did love them together. But now I'm hearing a lot of disturbing things about their antics. I want to say this to Mr. and Mrs. Carter.....I think that you two are letting the HYPE go to your heads. If you wanted privacy to deliver your child...you should have hired a Midwife and had your baby at home. And I'm sure that there are establishments that offer those kinds of services that you could have bought THEM out and CLOSED them down and it would have not been a big friggin' deal. But to pay millions of $$'s to buy out the WHOLE MATURITY WING??? I mean REALLY? Who the FECK do you people think you are? You spent millions on that shyt. And now other mothers and families have you to blame if something happened to their loved ones or babies because they couldnt get the care they needed when they needed it because of your selfishness. And the next time you just want to THROW AWAY a million + bucks, I will personally send you my name and address, you can throw it the feck my way. Then it would be money well spent. Because, and altho, the birth of a baby is special and important. Even if I had that kind of money to waste I would not wasted it in that manner. And to NOW say that you wont use the word bytch anymore just because now you have a daughter makes you the biggest azz on the face of the planet. That statement you made suggests to me that you have no respect for any female on this Earth UNLESS it is your daughter. FECK your wife, your mother, your sisters(if any), your aunt and your grandmother....they can be called a bytch, but not your precious daughter? Am I reading you right? Well, Mr. Carter, GOOD FECKING LUCK WITH THAT!!

I was a daughter before yours was Mr. Jay Z...and I didn't appreciate it, but I'm sure that didn't matter when your direct deposit hit. Now that Blue is here you feel like the truth is here...don't believe that lie, women have always been fly, held much HIGHer than where YOU placed us mothers,daughters, and sisters. When we asked and even begged for you to stop, you answered with another album drop. Why don't you have good old Blue re-claim it, like nigga...aint that what you told Oprah??? Another wonderful term that I'll ask and beg for you to stop using, but I guess until you have one of your own you wont see that truth either-hmmm...yet again I will keep teaching my beautiful black children that it's never ok to use bitch, nigga, ho, heffa, etc as a term of enderement...because they are too damn beautiful, smart, CREATIVE, sincere, caring, and amazing for that! Congrats regardless and I hope this is your first of many lessons to come per the BEST parents are always never ending learning!
This is a beautiful thought, albeit a little late. He's spoken of his NOW wife with that word & she's even called herself the same. However, the concept & knowledge of how precious his daughter is to him makes a world of difference TO HIM, what he says. So, on that note, congrats Hov & B. Make the best life 4 ur little bundle of Blue! ;-)

What an arrogant JACKASS.
Anonymous said…
A lot of these comments are contradictory. Some of y'all need to ask yourselves have you always lived a straight and narrow life. How many of y'all are actually using curse words as we speak yet are judging JayZ for wanting to change? How many of yall are calling an innocent newborn and people you don't know evil yet you call yourself a Christian? Its sad that people especially black continue to look down on those who want to do better and use their past against them. If a persons past was used as their judgement then everyone last one of y'all can expect to be burning in hell. Thankfully, my God doesn't work that way!
Samuel Burbanks said…
Yeah he might stop using bitch only to lean more on Ho and nigga but that's about it. I have no faith that this negro, sambo will change anything. Change some other shit while you at it like your self centeredness, or the way you judge a person's worth by the amount of material possessions you have, how about going back to the Black woman you assaulted and making things right with her. I have little faith that this man has changed.

If it's going to take wearing the shoe before you know how much it hurts, well..........then this world is far from healing. Can't we just use our God-given gifts like 'respect' for everyone and everything? Having said this, it's never too late to correct YOUR MISTAKES, so Mr. Jay-Z.....THANK YOU!
"A FEMALE"
Deborah said…
"Thank You" Mr. Carter for having a desire to want to change yourself from within so that your baby girl could experience first hand what a true gentleman is and how she's to be treated by a man... I "Thank God" for the little gift of life HE has givin you and your wife to enjoy, train and teach...

Very proud Wife, Mother,Grandmother,Sister, Auntie, Friend but most of all a Servant of the most HIGH...

I am so happy to see that someone of such great influence on others have decided to give the respect to their new born and had the idea to respect us all. I hope your peers and others in your business will do the same and respect the vessel that carried you and brought you into this world as your wife did for preciouse little blue. She is starting a new area women we will get the repect that we deserve back Bless you and your family

There are alot of NEGATIVE comments from Jay-Z's decision. Why? It did take him to have his own daughter, yes he has a mother, aunts, etc. He NEVER call them BITCHES. So what he doesnt want to say it now that his daughter is born. I use to call guys all kinds of words and had thoughts of guys now I have a son and I change my views. (FOR SOME)Point is no one can blame him. Now if he walked around just calling females bitches than alot of you would have reason to be upset. Every person has said the B word but Jay is a devil and a bad person because he does. Guess what? Jay-Z us going to do what he wants regardless to how me or any of you feel. And he made a great life for his daughter and his family and thats the MOST IMPORTANT thing. #FamilyFirst

While I agree that the previous person is an ass, they are correct. You use too to mean also as you stated but it can also mean a lot or very as in " you are too much" or "it's too soon".

I agree Anonymous. Indirectly that is a slap in the face to the mothers, aunties, sisters and wives he knew prior to Blue Ivy's birth. Not for them, but for her. Wow! Sometimes you must listen to what people are not saying. At times it is just as loud as what is being said.
