Is this the sweetest thing Kanye West has ever done?

2014-01-10 12:07

Los Angeles – Kanye West has written a lullaby for Jay Z and Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy.

The Bound 2 hitmaker presented the track to the tiny tot – who celebrated her second birthday on 7 January – as he wanted to do “something personal” for his rap star pal’s child.

A source told the Daily Star newspaper: “Kanye wanted to do something personal for his best friend’s baby.

“So he decided he would write and record a lullaby especially for her. It won’t be released, it’s just for Blue. He hopes it’ll help send her off to sleep at night.”

Kanye has a seven-month-old baby North, who is nicknamed Nori – with reality star fiancé Kim Kardashian – and hopes she’ll become friends with Blue.

The lullaby is about how doting dads Kanye and Jay Z will make sure their daughters don’t have to face the same struggles they did. Kanye dropped out of Chicago State University, much to the initial displeasure of his mother Donda West, when he was 20 and grew up in Brooklyn, New York City, in the tough Marcy Houses housing project.

The source added: “It’s really catchy and slow. Rather than the usual sweet dreams-themed lullaby songs, Kanye raps about how Blue Ivy and Nori will be mega-powerful when they’re older. It also mentions how he and Jay Z will work hard to make sure their girls have an easier path than they did.”
