London: Rapper Jay-Z has vowed not to use slangs in the lyrics of his songs. He dropped the word "bitch" from his song following the birth of his daughter.
The singer will no longer use the derogatory term for a woman out of respect for his first child, Blue Ivy, whom he and wife Beyonce Knowles welcomed into the world Jan 8, reports a website.
In a poem, which he has dedicated to his daughter, he wrote: "Before I got in the game, made a change, and got rich/ I didn`t think hard about using the word bitch. I rapped, I flipped it, I sold it, I lived it/ now with my daughter in this world I curse those that give it.
"I never realised while on the fast track that I`d give riddance to the word bitch/ to leave her innocence intact. No man will degrade her, or call her name/ I`m so focused on your future, the degradation has passed."
