Jay-Z on Fatherhood

Jay Z & Blue Ivy
When your baby first comes, it’s only joy. It’s fascinating that two people can create a life. It’s only glory, it’s all joy. Then after that kicks in, you sit with yourself and say, ‘Am I going to be a good dad? I know I have the DNA of my dad, I know it’s not just with me and my dad, it’s an ongoing problem in our entire community. How do I get around it?‘
Then all of those fears, anxieties and insecurities kick in, if you really want to do it the right way. So those first days were all joy, and now I have to do the work and make sure that I don’t repeat that same cycle, because I do have my father’s DNA. I’m sure he didn’t set out to leave, he married my mom. He tried, but life got in the way. He didn’t see 9 years out, of what would happen in his life. I’m sure he went into it with the best intentions, like we all do, but it didn’t work out.
