Jay Z’s latest album titled 4:44 singlehandedly served a ton of gems as well as revealed NEW FOUND information about his personal life.

Along with that information, the Brooklyn born rapper told the world about his mother coming out as a Lesbian.

Although Jay did not receive permission from his Ms. Carter to talk about this particular situation on his album, he felt like it was important, and that it could potentially help others who are hiding who they really are.

In a recent interview, Gloria Carter opened up about the initial  conversation with her son, and here’s what she had to say:

I just finally started telling (Jay) who I was. Besides your mother, this is the person that I am. This is the life that I live.

Gloria also mentioned that Jay Z became very emotional.

She continued to say:

‘ I was never ashamed of me. In my family, it was something that was never discussed.I’m tired of all the mystery. I’m gonna give it to ‘em. I don’t have to worry about anybody wondering if I’m in the life or not, I’m gonna tell them. So now that I told you, what do you have to talk about? So now maybe you can focus on the phenomenal things I do, so focus on that…Now it’s time for me to be free.’
