Beyonce y JAY-Z Dedican un Banco de Brooklyn Park a la Abuela de 93 Años de Edad del Rapero



Fue un discurso de la abuela de JAY-Z, Hattie White, lo que ayudó a inspirar el título del histórico álbum de Beyoncé, Lemonade. Esta Navidad, la familia Carter dejó un memorial de duración similar a la mujer de Brooklyn de 93 años de edad.

Durante las vacaciones, la familia Carter (JAY-Z, Beyoncé, sus tres hijos y la abuela Hattie) visitaron un banco en el Prospect Park de Brooklyn que, según se informa, ha sido inscrito con un tributo en honor a la matriarca.






De acuerdo con la cuenta de fans de Instagram de JAY-Z aintnojigga, la inscripción dice: “Alguien está sentado a la sombra hoy porque alguien plantó un árbol hace mucho tiempo. Con amor y admiración a nuestra raíz, Hattie White ".




For Christmas this year Shawn “JAY-Z” Carter, Beyoncé and their three children Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir gifted Jay’s 93-year-old Grandma Hattie White a park bench in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. Dedicated in her name, the touching inscription reads “Someone is sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago. With love and admiration to our root, Hattie White.” The Carter family are back in New York City for the holidays, and were photographed viewing the bench on Christmas morning with Hattie and Hov’s mother Gloria Carter. Hattie White was a formative figure in Shawn Carter’s life, with her famous banana pudding holding a key to happiness while they lived in the Marcy Houses. In the final moments of the LEMONADE standout “FREEDOM” the root of the Carter dynasty can be heard speaking during her 90th birthday party in October 2015, delivering us a piece of wisdom we can all apply to our own lives: “I had my ups and downs, but I always find the inner strength to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade.” Jigga’s most real (see: heart-breaking) reference to his Yaya came in 2002 on his Blueprint² track “I Did It My Way”: “Grandma’s favorite, she could not understand how there’s people in the world who wouldn’t want me as a neighbor? Has to explain to her, ‘You think these folks want me in the penthouse as a reminder that I make top paper?’” This four bar stanza refers to Jay’s disrupted purchase of his seventh-floor penthouse on 195 Hudson Street in TriBeCa. Buying from advertising executive Peter Arnell and his wife Sarah, the original sale negotiations and $6.5 million deal were sabotaged and derailed by other tenants in May 2002. Some residents feared Hov would bring his “celebrity lifestyle” to the “placid” halls of their exclusive downtown address. They went so far as to post messages in the lobby warning residents of his “criminal record and lifestyle of knives, guns and violence,” stating “we are of the opinion that due to [Jay-Z’s] lifestyle of violence, if he moves into our building, he will place us in danger.” (Continued in comments) #JAYZ #Beyonce

Hace tres años, en su fiesta de cumpleaños número 90, White pronunció un discurso que terminó siendo sampleado en la canción "Freedom" de Lemonade y luego inspiró el título del álbum: "Tuve mis altibajos, pero siempre encuentro la fuerza interior para levantarme. Me sirvieron limones, pero hice limonada."

Después de un muy exitoso 2018 que vio a los Carters recorrer el mundo y lanzar juntos un aclamado álbum, parece apropiado que terminaran el año rindiendo tributo a las raíces de la familia.
