Stop the presses, following the birth of his daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, with superstar wife Beyoncé, Jay-Z vowed that he will no longer say the word bitch.
In a poem obtained by NME magazine, Jigga wrote, ”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/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.”
While XXL applauds Hov and Bey for becoming proud, responsible parents, the staff is on the fence about Jay’s decision to stop using the “b-word,” especially since Jay has such a celebrated history with the derogatory term. But like anything in life, one must accept and move on. But before fans can digest this sad news, let’s take a look back at Shawn Carter’s best lines about bitches. Here’s to the good times.
