It turns out Jay-Z isn’t necessarily cleaning up his song vocabulary after all.  The rap superstar tells the “New York Daily News” that recent reports about him dropping the inflammatory B-word from his lyrics are not true.  A poem said to be written by Jay recently appeared in “NME” proclaiming that the emcee was benching the B-word because he’s now a dad.  Jay-Z and Beyonce welcomed their daughter Blue Ivy Carter into the world on January 7th.  Jay-Z celebrated another one of his creations on Wednesday night with the reopening of his 40/40 Club in Manhattan.  Jay dropped ten-million dollars on renovations, which include 165-inch video screens and golden bats lining the walls. The rap superstar arrived in a Maybach shortly before 11 p.m. without his Queen B. “Congratulations!” a crowd of gawkers shouted as he headed down the red carpet. “Thank you!” he yelled back with a wave.

Beyonce was rumoured to be making an appearance with Jay last night, but stayed home with their newborn daughter instead. Also in attendance was Ashanti, Spike Lee, Wale and others.
