Jay-Z Faces Fatherhood Fears on ‘Jay-Z Blue’

Blue Ivy and Jay-Z

As he gets closer to his album release, Jay-Z breaks down yet another song off his album Magna Carta Holy Grail, available to Samsung Mobile users on July 4. He raps about fatherhood and his own father’s absence on “Jay-Z Blue (Daddy Dearest),” inspired by his daughter Blue Ivy.

“It’s something that we both created,” he says of his child with Beyoncé. “We still marvel at her. It’s most obvious on a song called ‘Jay-Z Blue,’ and it deals with 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, with my karma, the two things I needed I don’t have and I have a daughter. It’s the paranoia of not being a great dad.”

He will perform atop the Ed Sullivan Theater marquee in New York for “The Late Show with David Letterman” on July 8. He was granted special permission from the mayor for the rooftop set.

Watch him explain “Jay-Z Blue” and read the lyrics below.
