    "Feeling loved is the most important thing a child needs, you know?" he said. "Not 'Here's this business that I’m going to hand over to you, that I'm creating for you.'"

    Jay-Z continued to explain that, when it comes to parenting, his and Beyoncé's goal is to "just make sure we provide a loving environment, be very attentive to who they want to be."
