Hip hop mogul, icon and legend, Jay-Z dropped his awaited album ‘”4:44″. The album is just wonderful. To be honest, I knew it would be. Jay-Z re-emerged on the scene in 1996 (give or take) and has been literally winning ever since.
On one of the tracks titled “Smile” Jay Z talked about his mother Gloria Carter being a lesbian. The track was beautiful and s soulful. The track starts with a snippet from Stevie Wonder and closes with a poem by Gloria herself, who recites: ‘The world is changing and they say it’s time to be free / But you live with the fear of just being me.’
Jay -Z said:
‘Mama had four kids but she’s a lesbian / Had to pretend so long, that she’s a thespian,’
‘Don’t matter to me if it’s a him or her / I just want to see you smile through all the hate,’
Kudos to you Ms. Gloria Carter.
