The rapper is looking forward to becoming a father for the first time at the start of next year.
Jay-Z has spoken candidly about becoming a father for the first time with wife Beyonce.
The 'Love On Top' star is due to give birth in the coming months to the couple's first child, thought to be a girl.
Speaking at a press conference in New York, Jay-Z said he intended to instil the couple's child with "character, integrity and morals".
He also admitted that his mother had played a key role when he was growing up.
"I believed my mum when she told me 'I could do anything'," he said.
Beyonce and Jay-Z's first baby is thought to be due in February but recent reports have suggested the couple's baby may arrive this year.
