F-ck what you heard, Blue Ivy Carter got next.
In 2017 JAY-Z‘s critically acclaimed 13th solo studio album 4:44 became available on iTunes. In true Hov fashion, the legend included a surprise nobody was ready for — a bonus track titled “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family.”
Yes, the prodigal daughter of JAY and Beyoncé made her rapping debut, singlehandedly sending Twitter into an overnight frenzy. “Boom shakalaka!” Blue spits on beat. “Everything is shaka, everything is flaka!” she shouts. Shoutout Waka Flocka?
But one insane bar definitely sticks out from the rest. As if we needed any more proof, Blue proves she’s JAY-Z and Beyoncé’s kid when she raps, “Never seen a ceiling in my whole life.” Heard you, Blue!
