Why We Shouldn’t Love Jay-Z’s Bitch
Tuesday, January 31, 2012

After the birth of Blue Ivy Carter there was a poem that made its way around the internet, purportedly to have been written by Blue Ivy’s father, Jay-Z, that implied Jay would stop using the word “bitch” in his music now the he’s the father of a little girl. This led to a lot of applause, and some criticisms noting this is something he should have done a lot sooner. People pointed out he had a mother, and a wife (Beyonce), before having a daughter, and having those two people in his life should have been enough of an influence for him to stop using the word. As a whole, however, people were supportive. There was just one problem - Jay didn’t write the poem, and within the week he announced he was, in fact, not planning on dropping the word “bitch” from his vocabulary, or his work.

Make no mistake this isn’t just a Jay-Z issue, it’s a widespread problem in hip-hop, Jay-Z just happens to have brought it to the forefront.
