Jay-Z Reveals His Mom Is a Lesbian on 4:44 Song "Smile"

Jay-Z is the proud son of a lesbian woman.

The 47-year-old living legend dropped his 13th album, 4:44, at midnight on TIDAL (in partnership with Sprint) with 10 brand new recordings. One of the tracks, "Smile," features Stevie Wonder's vocals and ends with a spoken word performance by his mom, Gloria Carter.
"Mama had four kids, but she's a lesbian / Had to pretend so long that she's a thespian / Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate / Society shame and the pain was too much to take / Cried tears of joy when you fell in love / Don't matter to me if it's a him or her / I just wanna see you smile through all the hate," Jay-Z raps in one verse. "Marie Antoinette, baby, let 'em eat cake."
