Jay-Z chokes up talking about fatherhood (+vid)

Jay-Z has choked up while talking about his wife Beyonce and one-year-old daughter Blue Ivy.

The rapper and music mogul talks about struggles to be a good husband and father in an emotional promotional video for his new song Jay-Z Blue.

"My pop left when I was young so he didn't teach me how to be a man or how to raise a child or how to treat a woman. So of course, my karma, the two things I need I don't have. And I have a daughter," he says.

"It's the paranoia of not being a great dad."

Jay-Z's new album Magna Carta Holy Grail is due out this week.
