Jay Z is one protective father — and with a daughter as adorable as Blue Ivy, who can blame him?
In fact, Hov is so watchful over baby Blue that he once put a call into friend and musical collaborator Swizz Beatz after the multiplatinum producer’s son Egypt planted a big ole kiss on his daughter. “The kiss happened and I got a phone call from Jay, talking about, ‘We need to talk’,” Swizzy told “RapFix Live” host Sway Calloway with a grin when he appeared on the show on Wednesday.
“So you know, they’re starting out young I guess,” he joked.
Swizz’s wife (and Egypt’s mom), Alicia Keys, first told the story back in February when she appeared on “The Wendy Williams Show.” It all went down in a recording studio where Alicia and Beyoncé were working while their kids were playing together. “Egypt kissed Blue, and I don’t think Jay liked it very much,” Alicia said before she let out a giggle. “He called my husband and he was like, ‘Watch your son.'”
Now, we doubt that Hov was serious, but the rap star is all about his daughter. He dedicated his song “Glory” to her only days after she was born and featured her crying and cooing on the track. In July he dedicated another track, “Jay Z Blue,” to her and in the November issue of Vanity Fair spoke about their musical bond .
“She’s my biggest fan. If no one bought the Magna Carta [album] — the fact that she loves it so much, it gives me the greatest joy,” Jay told the mag. “And that’s not like a cliché. I’m really serious.
“She plays a song and she goes, ‘More, Daddy, more … Daddy song,’ ” he continued. “She’s genuine. She’s honest because she doesn’t know it makes me happy, she just wants to hear it.”
