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.”

In “Heaven” he raps, “For me, my idea is, heaven is in your daughter’s laughter. Hell could be if your child was missing for three minutes, you’re in three minutes of hell.”

Check out the lyrics to “Jay-Z Blue” below and be sure to pick up Jay’s 12th studio album when it hits stores on July 4th.
