"Jay-Z Blue" Is About "Paranoia" Regarding Fatherhood

posted Friday June 28 ,2013 at 09:15AM CDT | 43 comments

Jay-Z releases another behind-the-scenes video for "Magna Carta Holy Grail," offering a glimpse into what "Jay-Z Blue" is about.

Jay-Z has revealed more information regarding his highly-anticipated Magna Carta Holy Grail release, this time offering a look into the making of "Jay-Z Blue." Details come as a promotional effort between Jay-Z and Samsung, where various videos are released to Galaxy users in a Holy Grail app to provide information about the album. 

"We still marvel at her," Jay explains in the video, speaking with producer Rick Rubin. "It's most obvious on the song called 'Jay-Z Blue.' It deals with, you know, my pop left when I was young. So, he didn't teach me how to be a man nor how to raise a child or treat a woman. So, of course, my karma, the two things I need, I don't have. And I have a daughter."

Jay-Z continues, providing a brief analysis of the song. 

"It's the paranoia of not being a good dad," he adds.

The ad can be viewed below.

Jay-Z has dealt with fatherhood in the past. A recent example of this can be found on "Glory," which also features his child, Blue Ivy Carter. "My greatest creation was you," he rhymes on the song. Jay has also been open about his relationshiop with his father, notably on "Moment of Clarity" and "Where Have You Been." 

This is the latest video released by Jay-Z and Samsung. Lyrics to "Jay-Z Blue" can be viewed in the app along with lyrics to other songs. The app works on Galaxy S III, Galaxy S 4 and Galaxy Note II phones. The app, which is currently available in the Google Play store, will also hold Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail on July 4, days before it is released to the public.

    The only thing Jay-Z is paranoid about regarding fatherhood is the fact that he is about to be arrested for child abuse, Jay, Em and Kanye are well known child abusers and are overall bad ppl. Birdman was a good father to wayne and he passed it on to regina carter.

      Jay only has 1 hot album?! You got to be on high on prescription drugs or something with idiotic comments like that. LOL As far as the Wayne comment goes, please don't tell me you were a fan of his work during the early Cash Money mainstream days. His first 3 albums are horrendous by any standards. In other words get the fuck out of here lmao

      'Do you all listen to music or do you just skim thru it?, I showed em how to maneuver, you didn't.' Jay Z Lil Bueno (Wayne), needs leen to make music on the level of Jay Z comparisons. Whenever you hear his voice change into martian status like on his early mixtapes before and after Carter, you better know he's on that stuff, just like Ole D B was on that stuff back in the day when his lyrics were wild and all over the place. Seizure anyone? That's why when he get older he gon like Flavor Flav. Jay Z figured out he gotta always talk about losing his father, Marcy projects, and wear fitteds, Timbs, and wear jewelery to maintain his street cred. *www.fb.com/freeolspeech

      This fool made an ignorant ass comment and then gave himself a cosign assuming the identity of four other comment post under different names. It leaves me only to wonder if the internet didn't exist how else would you go about growing a pair and being happy with yourself.

      @ jedson, haha, i've been saying that for a while.. dude makes it so obvious that he's co-signing himself.. lowercase letters, exclamation points.. it makes me wonder if this guy has any friends or a life, since he has to make up imaginary friends on here..
