“Feeling loved is the most important thing a child needs, you know?” the 51-year-old rapper turned mogul told The Sunday 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 Roc Nation founder continued, “What if my child” — referring to Blue Ivy, 9, and twins Sir and Rumi, 3 — “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.”
When it’s noted that their destinies seem defined as the children of two major superstars — after all Blue already won her first Grammy for “Brown Skin Girl” — he acknowledged that they do have a large legacy to live up to.
“Yeah,” he replied. However, their goal is “just make sure we provide a loving environment, be very attentive to who they want to be. It’s easy for us, as human beings, to want our children to do certain things, but we have no idea. We’re just guides.”
