Shawn Carter was born December 4th, weighing in at 10 pounds and 8 ounces. He was the last of Gloria Carter’s four children. The only one who didn’t give her any pain when she gave birth to him. That’s how she knew he was a special child… child… child.
From what I can remember, the story to the following video goes like this: Sometime between 2003-2005, Beyonce, along with Jay Z’s friends and family, shot a secret music video for the Jigga man’s “December 4th” song, a track found on The Black Album. The mogul was then surprised with the video at a get together celebrating his birthday.
Take it all in, folks. I don’t think we’re ever going to see a Jay-Z-ified Beyonce in the middle of Marcy with a NY Yankees tilted brim ever again. But then again, the “B” does stand for Bout Dat Lyfe so who knows.
Anyway, happy birthday, Mr. Carter! I’m glad you turning 44 on the fourth didn’t bring about the rapture like I initially thought it would. YouTube told me that you and the misses’ love affair with the number four was blah blah blah Illuminati and something something “Ave Satanas.” Hmph! Last time I ever trust the Internet.
