Jay-Z's Open Letter to Blue Ivy Carter

It's becoming pretty clear that Blue Ivy Carter will definitely be a daddy’s girl! Yesterday Jay-Z released a track titled “Glory” for his new daughter and today he pens his first personal yet lyrical letter to her. Check out what the proud daddy has to say.
“Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich,

I didn’t think hard about using the word Bitch.

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.”

UPDATE: For those of you looking for Jay-Z's new song, "Open Letter" check it out below! On the track, debuted on New York’s Hot 97 and Jay’s Life + Times, Jay expresses disgust at the outsized interest in his recent Cuba anniversary trip, which was criticized by by three Republican members of Congress and approved by the U.S. Treasury Department. “Open Letter” also acknowledges Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite rapper Chief Keef, quotes Bob Dylan’s 1975 track “Idiot Wind” and brushes off reports that Jay is looking to sell his small stake in the Brooklyn Nets and become an NBA agent. Would have brought the Nets to Brooklyn for free/ Except I made millions off you fuckin dweebs/ I still own the building, I’m still keeping my seat, he says. By “seat,” he probably means the exclusive $550,000 per year suite which he’s used for free since the opening of the Barclays Center.
