The Dream: 'jay-Z More Gritty Since Birth Of Daughter'
Long-time collaborator The Dream claims Jay-Z has become “more gritty” since the birth of his daughter Blue Ivy in January 2012. Speaking to RapFix the producer said fatherhood had done nothing to mellow his friend’s music. “I think he’s gotten a little more gritty,” he responded, when asked if fatherhood had at all softened Jay-Z...
He went on to claim that Jay-Z was still improving as a rapper, despite his elevated status in the industry. “I think he’s becoming more of a painting,” he said.
“It’s just moving. It’s just travelling through time now. There’s no way to be surprised again. If any one of us does anything great, it’s hard to surprise you,” he added.
“You already have an expectation level that’s so high. So he’s definitely more skilled and better than he was, but are you really surprised?”
