It’s kinda funny how people pass judgement on “what” inspires growth instead of appreciating growth as it’s occurring. There’s 99 things we could be focussing on and considering why Jigga stopped using the word “bitch” ain’t one….or is it? The popular line of logic is that your mother, your mothers’ mother, your mother’ mothers’ mother should be enough of a reason and if that don’t cut it than the buck should definitely stop with your wife. Well what inspired internal transformation in Jay was not his mom or his wife…it was his daughter. Is that something to be proud or ashamed of?
So, after years of using derogatory language to describe women, Blue Ivy’s father, Shawn ‘Jay-Z’ Carter, has decided to immediately cease and desist using the word “B*itch” in honor of his new-born daughter, reports GlobalGrind.com
In a touching verse, he rhymes:
“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 in tact.
No man will degrade her, or call her out her name
the women won’t despise her and call her the same.
I know it’s gonna miss me
cuz we been together like Nike Airs and crisp tees
when we all used to hang out front
singing 99 problems but a lady ain’t one.
Excuse me miss, can I be your mister
cuz I can tell the difference from a little girl and a sister,
She never grew up, her father left her alone
I promise not to talk like we used to
until Kingdom Come.
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.”
This is a good thing, right? An African-American man realizing the error of his ways, acknowledging his mistakes and moving forward with more class and dignity than he had previously shown?
