The rapper reportedly penned a poem detailing his maturity and growth.
He writes: "Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich/ I didn't think hard about using the word b**ch/ I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it/ Now with my daughter in this word I curse those that give it. No man will degrade her or call her name/ I'm so focused on your future, the degradation has passed."

Some would claim that Jay-Z's sudden maturity is a bit too late, but he is gaining praising from those who hope his new stance will inspire younger rappers to do the same.
The new dad has been busy creatively ever since Blue Ivy's birth 10 days ago. He recently released "Glory" featuring B.I.C., which quickly entered the Billboard charts at number 74.
