Jay-Z & The B-Word

Jay-Z says now that he’s a father, things are going to be different when it comes to his lyrics. At least, that’s what a poem allegedly written by the rapper claims.

After Beyoncé gave birth to Blue Ivy Carter earlier this month Jay-Z released a tune called “Glory” dedicated to their daughter. Now baby Carter also has a poem allegedly written in her honor. The poem, which has been posted just about everywhere online except for Jay-Z’s website, promises not to use the derogatory slang word “bitch” anymore.

Sample lyrics include: “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 intact/ No man will degrade her, or call out her name/ the women won’t despise her and call her the same.”

The poem also mentions Jay-Z’s 2004 single “99 Problems” and changes the lyric mentioning the b-word to “lady.”

The UrbanDaily.com, which posted an excerpt of the poem Jan. 12 and linked to the full poem on RollingOut.com, updated the post with a note from the website’s editor saying, “It is not confirmed that Jay-Z did actually write this poem. We believe it is fake.”
