Gloria Carter

Shawn Carter was born December 4th
Weighing in at 10 pounds, 8 ounces
He was the last of my 4 children
The only one who didn't give me any pain when I gave birth to him
And that's how I knew that he was a special child

You may have noticed that "Rap Friday" was on hiatus in November.  But it's back for December -- the birth month of Shawn Carter, a/k/a Jay-Z.

The introduction to "December 4" (Jay-Z's birthday) is spoken by his mother, Gloria Carter.  According to her, she knew Jay-Z was special the day he was born, and Jay-Z would certainly second that emotion.

Jay-Z has an enormous ego.  (Only someone with a huge ego would begin a track with his mother telling the world how special he is because he caused her no pain during childbirth.)  That annoys a lot of people.  But Jay-Z just wouldn't be Jay-Z without his breathtaking swagger.
