“I actually thought about that more before she (Blue Ivy) was born. Once she got here I’ve been in shock until maybe last week? We would fight each other. My brother would beat me up. I was going to have to fight, I was going to have to go through some things, and they were preparing me. She doesn’t have to be tough. She has to love herself, she has to know who she is, she has to be respectful, and be a moral person.”--Jay-Z on raising Blue Ivy in TriBeCa compared to his growing up in Marcy Projects.
