"You're Not Supposed To Take This Dad Thing Literally"

Does Jay-Z have a love child? The rapper addresses the rumor that has carried on for more than two years on his latest album, Everything Is Love, which was released with his wife, Beyonce, this past weekend.

Jay bluntly takes on the story of him fathering aspiring rapper Rymir Satterthwaite in the song. “Billie Jean in his prime,” Jay-Z raps. “For the thousand time, the kid ain’t mine,” he continues. “Online they call me Dad, kiddingly/ You’re not supposed to take this Dad thing literally.”


It was just a few weeks ago that Rymir Satterthwaite accused Jay-Z of collusion. According to Rymir, his lawyers and Jay worked together to have the paternity case thrown out of the Philadelphia courts. Rymir again called for Jay to submit to a test, which he believes would establish Jay as the father of four.

“I don’t want money or anything like that from Jay-Z,” Rymir recently told media. “I just want him to finally tell the truth to the world,” the 24-year-old explained. “He’s supposed to be a positive role model for our community – he stands there screaming ‘Black Lives Matter’ – well tell the truth and take responsibility. And if you say I’m not your son and nothing ever happened with my mom then just take the test.”

We don’t think that Jay-Z will be submitting to a paternity test for Rymir any time soon if his response in ‘Everything Is Love’ is any indication. Stay tuned for more Carter family news!
