15 Hip-Hop Songs That Name-Drop Blue Ivy
Having parents that are two of the most famous people on the planet has its perks. As the heir to the Carter family throne, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s 7-year-old daughter Blue Ivy has already lived a life that most of us can only dream of.
Already a young jet setter, her eventful existence already has highlights like rapping on tracks with her famous father, having a whole theme park rented out on her behalf, becoming the youngest person to ever appear on Billboard charts and dropping five figures at an art gallery. You know, just the average life of a second-grader.
Aside from some detractors, the billionaire couple’s daughter has become a media darling over the years and been one of the most talked about—and rapped about—celebrity children in hip-hop.
It is par for the course for proud papa Hov to pen lines about his first-born daughter, as he’s done on tracks like “Glory,” “Jay-Z Blue” and most recently bringing her up on the 4:44 song “Legacy” where he raps, “My stake in Roc Nation should go to you/Leave a piece for your siblings to give to their children, too.” He isn't the only one.
Other MCs have also name-dropped the power couple’s princess on several occasions including tracks from Kendrick Lamar, The Game, Vic Mensa, Royce 5’9” and others. Blue Ivy Carter is set for life and with as many times as she’s been mentioned on wax, her name will live on forever.
In commemoration of BIC's seventh birthday today, XXL compiles a list of tracks that name-drop the Carter’s oldest kid.
