Jay-Z Calls Poem & Reports Of Rapper Dropping Use Of Word Beyotch A Fake
Amid the furor in the days after the birth of Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and wife Beyoncé Knowles' daughter, Blue Ivy, a bevy of reports stated that a poem written by Jay-Z in honor of his daughter's birth was released in where the “99 Problems” rapper vowed to drop the word “Beyotch” from his songs. It is a claim the rapper himself say are untrue.
The New York Daily News reports that Jay-Z briefly addressed the poem as he prepares for a Wednesday (January 18) night reopening of his popular high-end sports bar the 40/40 Club . Jay-Z told The New York Daily News, “That poem and story are fake” – saying little else and instead focusing on tonight's red-carpet gala.
A number of music and entertainment websites, including NME, reported about the alleged poem, which promptly exploded throughout the Web. Hip-Hop Wired reached out to NME editors to confirm how they obtained the alleged poem but did not garner a response.
A source close to the musical power couple said that Beyoncé will make her first post-baby appearance at tonight's event for the 40/40 reboot.
