Rapper Jay-Z will clean up his lyrics in his brand-new baby Blue Ivy’s honor.
Shawn Carter, as he probably is known on the little one’s birth certificate, says he will no longer use the word “bitch,” and he will zealously defend his daughter from anyone who might hurl it her way one day.
The web site NME posted a poem in which Jay-Z elucidates his new pledge:
“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.”
Woe betide the person who slings epithets at his and Beyonce’s new baby. Jay-Z continues:
“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.”
Like they say, parenthood changes everything.
