Jay-Z has been known as a lyrical rap genius for almost two decades but never has he poured out as much heart and soul as he has the last two days. Early in the morning on January 8,2012, Sean Carter and Beyonce Knowles gave birth to their first daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
Less than a day later the legendary ‘Jigga’ released a song he wrote to greet the new life into the world. The song is no doubt a celebrated hip-hop beat with raw and meaningful lyrics which we haven’t noticed from Jay since the ‘Blueprint’. You can even notice his excitement, as he should be, and joy in his voice as he spits out the words.
Gut-wrenching and classic Jay-z style song lyrics to listen for:
“You’re the child of destiny / you’re the child of my destiny / you’re my child with the child from Destiny’s Child.”
“Last time the miscarriage was tragic / We was afraid you’d disappear but nah baby you’re magic.”

It seems that the proud father may now have more than 99 problems.
