JAY-Z  reveals whether he wants his three children with wife Beyoncé to in music business | Daily Mail Online

Jay-Z, real name Shawn Carter, has built a successful empire over his more than two decades in the music industry.

But the 51-year-old revealed The Weekend Australian on Saturday that he is not pushing his three children to take over the reigns of his music and business empires.

The Brooklyn-born rapper and his singer Beyoncé are doting parents to nine-year-old Blue Ivy, and twins Sir and Rumi, who turn four in June.

He said: ‘Feeling loved is the most important thing a child needs, you know? Not “Here’s this business that I’m going to hand over to you, that I’m creating for you.”  

The Grammy winner explained that their approach has always been to give their kids a ‘loving environment’ and support for what they want to achieve and 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,’ JAY-Z added.
