Jay-Z Says Being Fatherless Left Him Without Knowing How to Love A Woman, Or Be a Dad


Slowly, but surely, Jay-Z seems to be letting us in on married life and being a father as he gears up for his new album. ‘Magna Carter Holy Grail’ will be in stores next week and the rapper/businessman has released another trailer video for songs inspired by daughter, Blue Ivy. In the ‘Jay-Z Blue ‘trailer, he talks with producer Rick Rubin about the song on balancing married life and how growing up without a father has affected his life.

She’s [Blue Ivy] something that we both created; we still marvel her. My pop left when I was young, so he didn’t teach me how to be a man, nor how to raise a child, or treat a woman. So, of course, my karma, the two things I need, I don’t have. And I have a daughter. It’s the paranoia of not being a great dad.

In the ‘Heaven’ trailer, he also addresses the concept of heaven and hell explaining:

For me, my idea of heaven is in your daughter’s laughter; hell could be if your child is missing for three minutes–you’re in three minutes of hell…It’s just not my belief that a just God would make you burn for eternity for [the] free will that he gave you.

Check out a couple of the teasers below:
