If the latest promotional clips from partner brand Samsung are any indication, fatherhood will be a major theme in Jay-Z's upcoming opus Magna Carta Holy Grail. While the previous video "Heaven" contained an oblique indication of the impact his daughter has had on his worldview, this latest featurette is pure exposition, with Jay-Z drawing a straight line between his father's abandonment and the crucial lessons he never received -- how to be a man, and how to raise a child. He sums up the song "Jay Z Blue" as dealing with "the paranoia of not being a great dad." The prolific artist in "4 More" and the trailblazer in "One To Many," Jay gets personal here, unveiling his most revealing behind-the-scenes look yet. Check out the video below.
