JAY-Z Debuts Animated Video of Daughter Blue Ivy Rapping for Her 6th Birthday
JAY-Z debuted an animated video of his daughter Blue Ivy rapping for her 6th birthday on Thursday
The rapper, 48, dropped the video titled “Blue’s Freestyle,” which is a cut from his 4:44 album, for his daughter’s birthday on Thursday.
The video – which was released on his TIDAL service – shows a school talent show in progress with little Blue waiting in the wings as her ballet routine is introduced.
Beyoncé and JAY-Z, along with siblings Rumi and Sir, are shown watching her perform. Wearing a pink ballerina outfit, Blue performs a bit of her routine before she flips her head up and raises her fist to accept a falling microphone into her hand and launches into a freestyle rap.
“Everything everything this is my only single thing/Everything I hear is my answer/And if you think I say, then innocent if I say?/ I never hear that, I be in the posse,” she raps.
Blue has been featured heavily in her father’s work, and most recently appeared in his “Family Feud” music video, along with her mother and several other A-list stars.
In the video, Blue walks down a church aisle with JAY-Z before he enters a confessional booth to disclose his sins to his wife.
“Family Feud” raised eyebrows when it was released as it is a reference to Becky, the mistress mentioned on Beyoncé’s Lemonade. “Yeah, I’ll f— up a good thing if you let me/Let me alone, Becky/A man that don’t take care his family can’t be rich/I’ll watch Godfather, I miss that whole s—.”
The full video can be watched on TIDAL.
