Jay Z released "Glory" as a tribute to his newborn daughter "Blue IV Carter" and it shows the growth of an artist.
Right now, we have Common trying to diss a way younger artist than himself in Drake. Although Jay Z's "Glory" is not a classic, it is refreshing in a game that has taken several steps back. Jay Z himself, has taken several steps forward. Including the baby's first cries into this world at the end, he shows how moved he is by birth.
He also touches on the sensitvie subject of Beyonce's miscarriage in 2010. It is touching and it humanizes him and Beyonce in a way that we just never see the couple.
We are hoping some of Jay rubbed off on Kanye so he does not go into Common's path. It's nice to see an artist so humbled by birth.
For those who have not heard the track yet, check it out below.

Diagnosis: Glory to Blue IV
Despite rumors last week saying otherwise, Common and Serena Williams are STILL together.

So far, Kanye West has remained silent on the announcement of the "Fame Kills" tour being cancelled. Knowing my luck, he just posted a response on his blog. But as I am writing this, he hasn't.
His silence is surprising because he usually writes there all the time to responses or other things that concern him. Nothing yet as questions loom.
Did he want the tour to be cancelled? Did 50 Cent who recently called it the "Gay Tour" have anything to do with his decision? Was he always wanting to back out? Are the rumors of him going to rehab true?
Last weekend at Common's fund raiser concert where Kanye performed to a electric crowd happy to see him, we hear that Kanye turned into a diva over drinks and food not being offered to him and being upset he had to ask before he got it. Maybe they should called it the "Diva Tour" and when is Kanye going to grow up?
Listen, we all know what Kanye did at VMA's was just Kanye being Kanye. It was blown out of proportion even though it was hella rude. Are we forgetting his controversial Rolling Stone cover where he came off as Jesus Christ even though he said that was not how he meant it? You ever seen Kanye's MTV Diary? He has been doing this stuff for a while. Even if it is Kanye being Kanye, after a while, people do get tired of it.
He is talented without a doubt musically. His people skills totally suck and you can't argue that. What I do call into question is what he tries to accomplish off the stage and out of the studio. Straight up, Kanye is an artist at war with himself and has a lot of personal issues he needs to get a handle of.
In a few words or less, I am calling Kanye out. I am awaiting your response. Don't be silent. If you get pissed, just call me a bunch of names playing on my name. Other people do it. It makes them think they are cool. But Kanye, do us all a favor and stop being silent and let out that inner bitch of what really happened. You know you want to.
So what do you think of Kanye's reaction to the tour cancellation?-Dr.FB
Always one of the first to dismiss bad behavior when it comes to music, Hollywood did that Saturday night for Kanye West. It was rumored for a while that either Kanye or Jay-Z would show up at the Palladium but it was West, who got the crowd poppin'.
Straight up, he is the jackass that our celebrity President called him for his actions at the MTV Video Music Awards and Taylor Swift 2 weeks ago. All I care about is his music and his performance. He still has no class but this performance is hot.
What do you think?-Dr.FB
Kid Cudi, who's CD is selling crazy style and will debut very high, teamed up with Common over the weekend in Chicago and we wanted to share this video with Kid Cudi performing with Common.
Kid Cudi is selling well, but the reaction to Common is insane!
Aside from some bass level issues, what do you think of the performance?-Dr.FB
Kid Cudi joined forces with Common and Kanye West and a sampled(?) Lady Gaga made this jam that after one listen had me caught. (Make Her Say) Poke Her Face? Love the title alone.
Take a listen and watch the video and tell me if you feel the same way.-Dr.FB
