She’s still too little for headphones but Blue Ivy Carter already has a better music collection than most people on the Planet.
The Roots Drummer Questlove Gives Blue Ivy Carter iPod With 4,000 Songs
Unfortunately the gift wasn’t exactly as it’s bearer, The Roots drummer Questlove, intended. He fell short of the 12,000 song mark he originally planned for but will make up for it by updating the collection on a yearly basis:
JAY-Z approved of Questlove’s baby gift. The Roots drummer told us at Saturday’s second annual Comedy Awards that his gift to Blue Ivy Carter was a big hit with the infant’s hip-hopping daddy. “Jay loves it,” said Quest, who was on hand at the Hammerstein Ballroom to perform with his band.
Back in January, the Afroed music aficionado told us he was still working on a specially curated iPod of 12,000 songs to present to Hova and Beyonce, but he didn’t quite reach his goal when he presented it to the new parents. “I put like 4,000 songs on it,” Quest said, adding, “Ironically, I only got to the letter J.” The bandleader and part-time deejay wanted the iPod to feature songs spanning the alphabet but said he’ll make up for the missing tracks another way. “We have a system now where I’ll re-up it once a year, every Christmas,” said Quest. It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
What a lucky kid!
