Jay-Z Talks Not Repeating The Sins of His Father

(AllHipHop News) Jay-Z, recently named one of GQ’s “Men of the Year,” attended the 16th annual party held to celebrate the honor this past Friday night in West Hollywood along with his pregnant wife, Beyonce. The Hip-Hop power couple is expecting their first child in February.

At the party, Jay-Z spoke to People magazine, reflecting on his own childhood, specifically his father walking out on him when he was 11 years old. He made it clear that he wanted to raise his child differently to his father, telling People that, “It makes me a little paranoid because no matter what, I don’t think any person, or any male, goes into a relationship thinking that they’re going to leave or wouldn’t be there”.

Hov also went on to say how he plans on not making the same mistakes as his father, saying that in comparison to his father, he is “just a different kind of guy” and a “highly principled person.” Jay also made it clear that he plans on giving his child all of the luxuries that he never had growing up, reminiscent of his verse on the song “New Day”.

On this track from, Watch The Throne, he addresses not wanting to be like his father, most powerfully through the lines, “Cause my dad left me and I promise never repeat him / Never repeat him / Never repeat him.” With the experience of his father walking out on him, it appears that Jay-Z has learned a great lesson from it and is ready to raise his own child the right way.
