Beyonce’s Mom Tina Knowles-Lawson Pays Emotional Tribute To Jay-Z In Open Letter

Published: Monday 22nd Feb 2021 by Sam

Jay-Z has many fans and one of the most ardent is his Mother-In-Law, Tina Knowles-Lawson. 

Fresh from the news that the Roc Nation mogul has successfully sold a 50% of his revered champagne brand Armand de Brignac to Moët Hennessy, Beyonce’s Mom shared a powerful salute to the star.

In the lengthy letter laced with love, Ms. Tina praised HOV’s business acumen and ambition, as well as his drive to continually uplift Black talent.

Her words after the jump…

Via Ms. Tina Knowles-Lawson:

“This is a love letter to my son-in-law Shawn Carter.

The reason why I was led to write this was because recently at the Super Bowl we witnessed the National Anthem, America the Beautiful and the Halftime entertainment all being super talented Black people !!! Everyone was psyched about it! Each person that performed… Jazmine Sullivan, H.E.R., and The Weekend all slaying their performances and making Black Excellence shine and us all proud. I could not help but remember when J took on being in charge of the Entertainment at the Super Bowl. And saying that things would never change unless we had someone on the inside that could make decisions. Someone at the top.

I read all the horrible things people said calling him a sellout and hating on him big time. But he kept it moving because every person who has affected change has been criticized and dogged by their peers. One thing that I’ve noticed about Jay is that he doesn’t let what people say bully him into not doing the things that he knows are right. But after the last Super Bowl I did not read one comment by one person that said that they were pleased that he didn’t listen to the noise and he kept it moving and that he was able to get three talented Black people to dominate this year’s Super Bowl. Why is that?

It took a lot of guts and a lot of his money, blood sweat and tears to start Tidal. Tidal has the best sound around and is an excellent streaming service. I really try to support every Black business but so many would rather support Apple. One day I claim that we will stop being crabs in a barrel. We will support each other. There is room for everyone.

But today Jay I salute you and your latest venture in selling 50% of your Champagne Co to LVMH. You are a badass brother and I hope that you continue to pave the way for others like you have in the past!! And I have seen such extreme kindness and generosity so many times that people don’t even know anything about! You are a true man who has admitted publicly when you’ve made mistakes in a very brave and classy way ! You have in turn influenced the Culture of Young Black Men. You are a Bad Ass brother. I love you so much!!❤️”

    Umm where do I start. Firstly, everything that she said is true….however I feel like the ppl who praise, support and give Jay is flowers are far greater than the haters. Everyone is not going to like him, and that’s ok. Nonetheless, Tina always standing up for her family, even when it may not be warranted, and there ain’t nothing wrong with that. We love her for that!

    When did Theifyonce take a photograph with George Floyd? Who is the boy in the yellow dress playing dress-up wishing to be on Drag Race?

    The truth is the truth and one thing that I admired about her is she do speak her truth. People for some reason always have hatred things to say about the Carters(Jay and Beyoncé) but nothing about all the good things that they do, especially what we have heard about Beyoncé in her giving back far and beyond any measure. Beyoncé giving back are to forthcoming to mention as well as Jay. One thing I will say without a second thought -Beyoncé is a beautiful soul and her heart 💜 is beyond what someone of her stature will ever do. When there’s tragic especially in her home town she is always on the front line ahead of even those in power not waiting on what might can get done but offer her time energy and money to try and help smooth the situations. Sorry but unlike Ted Cruz he left the city with family for a warming situation and left his poodle home in death cold to fin for its life is so sad. Then had the nerve to try and shift the situation on his own daughter that she ask for this vacation even if so why not seen her/wife and you stay back and try to help the helpless people that were left to try and figure things out. Sad 😞 😞 😞 Yes Ms. Tina speak your truth it is what it is

    Ms Tina I have to say that was so poignant. Beautiful words you wrote to your son in-law. Made me shed a year you are so right to uphold our black brothers so often they get bad rep for not being a stand up guy. Beautifully said . Your one badass mother in law !

    Tina Knowles-Lawson is such an awesome mother-in-law indeed. However, Jayz has also earned his place in the ranks of billionaires of the world. He made more money as a businessman than as an artist
