I was jamming Watch the Throne today (that’s an album from a couple hot rappers right now) and there’s a song where Jay and Kanye were talking to their future children.
Kanye said he would tell his son to stick with your college girlfriend and never try and find love in the strip club. Jay apologized to his son because he doesn’t even exist and the paparizi are already in wait.
Today, a couple days before Fathers Day in 2012 I want to write this letter letting you know that I’m trying my hardest to build something that you’ll be proud of.
I wish I could promise you the best schools and the biggest homes but I can’t. I won’t make promises to you that I can’t keep. But I can promise you that whomever your mother ends up being she’ll be gorgeous and smart and loving and even if it doesn’t work like I see it in my mind we’ll both do anything in the world for you.
When you get old enough you’ll look me up and see a man that loves sex, women and writing but just know there’s so much more to me than that. And I’ll show you that. Sometimes I feel like there’s a void in my life, an emptiness that I can’t shake. And I know you’ll fill that because you’ll represent my legacy.
You’ll mean more to your father than any bestselling novel or female conquest.
I love you. I’ve never heard those words from my father or grandfathers so I’ll be sure to whisper it to your mothers stomach everynight. With her I’ll show you how a woman should be treated.
