Jay-Z has revealed he has high hopes for daughter Blue Ivy Carter, stating he wants her to have a better childhood than he did.
The Throne star, who was pictured on a super-yacht with wife Beyoncé and Blue earlier this week, recalled the fights he used to have with his brother in order to prepare him for what he may encounter on the streets.
Jigga told The New York Daily Times: "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."
The rapper went on to add that his family is "amazing", stating that Blue Ivy will never encounter the same problems he did growing up.
Jay said: "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."
