Sins of a father make your life ten times harder

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z) – New Day Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A reference to Bible verse Exodus 20:5 which states that children will be punished for the sins of their fathers

In Jay-Z’s case, his “sins” aren’t necessarily the problem. He means to say that his fame will lead to a difficult life for his child
