In an exclusive snippet from his extensive conversation with Gayle King, Jay-Z, the celebrated rapper and record producer, candidly acknowledged that his eldest daughter, Blue Ivy, once had doubts about his “coolness.”
“Blue, she be frontin’ on me a little bit,” Jay said of the 11-year-old when Gayle asked if his children think he’s cool. “But I catch her. I catch her in the corner, you know? Now she asks me, you know if this is cool if her sneakers (are cool).”
Jay-Z further added, “She’s come around.”
The Roc Nation founder went on to explain that there was a time when Blue Ivy felt embarrassed by her famous father.
“But there was a time where she was like, ‘Daaaad.’ I’m like, ‘I’m cool. I don’t know what you sayin. At your house, your parents is cool.”
