Jay Z Promises To Be A Good Daddy
Hot Celebrity: Who is Jay-Z – a rapper, a nightclub owner, a clothing designer, an author, a composer. But the one job he’s most excited about? Being a hands-on father. The Rapper promised that he would a good father.
“Of course, of course [I'll change my baby's diapers],” the hip-hop star tells the December issue of GQ. “One hundred percent.”
“If your dad died before you were born, yeah, it hurts, but it’s not like you had a connection with something that was real,” Jay-Z explains. “Not to say it’s any better, but to have that connection and then have it ripped away was, like, the worst. My dad was such a good dad that when he left, he left a huge scar. He was my superhero.”
The rapper and his father didn’t reunite until 2003, when Jay-Z was 33 years old. “[I talked about] what it did to me, what it meant, asked him why. There was no real answer. There was nothing he could say, because there’s no excuse for that. There really isn’t,” Jay-Z says. “So there was nothing he could say to satisfy me, except to hear me out. And it was up to me to forgive and let it go.”
