Jay-Z reveals one of his biggest fears in the new promo video for his upcoming album, Magna Carta Holy Grail.
The hip-hop mogul, who grew up in a single-parent household, said he worries about his ability to be a great father to his 16-month-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.
“My pop left when I was young. He didn’t teach me how to be a man nor how to raise a child — or treat a woman,” he says to record producer Rick Rubin. “So, of course, my karma, the two things I need, I don’t have, right, and I have a daughter. It’s the paranoia of not being a great dad.”
He goes on to say that sometimes he and his wife Beyonce stare at Blue in awe.
“[She’s] something that we both created,” he says. “We still marvel at her.”
Jay details his unconditional love for Blue Ivy on two tracks on his new album, “Heaven” and “Jay-Z Blue.”
