"I got in the car and I'm faced this way, so we're driving, and I just hear a little voice," Jay-Z tells Letterman.

Well, isn't this adorable: Hip-hop mogul JAY-Z turns to mush at the mere mention of his 6-year-old princess, Blue Ivy.

On an upcoming episode of David Letterman's Netflix show, "My Next Guest Needs No Introduction," the rapper-producer shares an adorable story about his firstborn daughter with Beyonce.

"I told her to get in the car the other day because she was asking a thousand questions and we had to leave for school," JAY-Z tells Letterman in the sneak peek below.

"And I got in the car and I'm faced this way, so we're driving, and I just hear a little voice, 'Dad, I didn't like when you told me to get in the car the way you told me.' She's 6! 'It hurt my feelings,'" he says Blue told him. "And I was like, 'That's the most beautiful thing you've ever said to me.'"

During the special, JAY-Z also opens up about the emotional moment his mother came out to him.

"Imagine having lived your life for someone else," he says. "And you think you're protecting your kids. And for my mother to have to live as someone that she wasn't and hide and like, protect her kids -- and didn't want to embarrass her kids, and you know, for all this time. And for her to sit in front of me and tell me, 'I think I love someone.' I mean, I really cried. That's a real story. I cried because I was so happy for her that she was free."

"This was the first time we had the conversation," he adds, noting this happened about eight months ago. "And the first time, I heard her say she loved her partner. Like, 'I feel like I love somebody.' She said, 'I feel like.' She held that little bit back, still. She didn't say, 'I'm in love.' She said, 'I feel like I love someone.' And I just -- I cried. I don't even believe in crying because you're happy. I don't even know what that is. What is that?"

"My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman: Jay-Z" launches Friday, April 6 on Netflix.
