"Time Is All You Have"

Fatherhood has changed Jay-Z. The Hip Hop mogul recently sat down with Kevin Hart on the comedian’s Hart To Heart talk show where Jay-Z shared how becoming a parent has influenced the way he spends his time.

“Time is all you have,” Jay told Kevin during the interview. “That’s the only thing we can control is how you spend your time,” the celebrity father added. “You’re reckless with your time before [becoming a parent],” Jay-Z revealed.


“You’re just all over the place,” the rapper further explained. “And then, you know, what are you leaving your house for? Every second that you spend, you’re spending away from the development of these people that you brought here [and] that you love more than anything in the world. So, what are you going to spend that time on? So [understanding] that changed a lot. That changed practically everything.”

Jay-Z and his wife, Beyonce, have three kids – Blue, Sir, and Rumi – together. It was just last year that Jay-Z told the press that family meant everything to him. “Feeling loved is the most important thing a child needs,” Jay told The Roanoke Times in a rare interview.

“Not, ‘Here’s this business that I’m going to hand over to you, that I’m creating for you,'” the celebrity father continued. “What if my child doesn’t want to be in music or sports? I have no idea, right? But as long as your child feels supported, and feels loved, I think anything is possible.”

Blue Ivy Carter appears to follow in her parents’ footsteps with a Grammy Award and other collaborations in the music industry. In fact, the youngster performed alongside her mother during this year’s Academy Awards show.
