By Terri-Lee Taylor,

This week, Jay-Z dedicated a song to Nelson Mandela, Mac Miller & Pharrell Williams are working on an album together and Childish Gambino received mixed reviews for Because The Internet.

Late last week, the world lost a great leader. Many people all over the world took to the internet to pay tribute to Nelson Mandela, but Jay-Z took his tribute a step further. According to the Rolling Stone, Jay-Z ended his show at the Staples Center in LA by dedicating his hit song "Forever Young" to Nelson Mandela.

"All our dreams are possible...Tonight I'm living my dream in front of y'all," Jay-Z said as the intro to "Forever Young" began. "...Let that great man stand as an example of what you can do."

The show ended with the crowd singing along with the song.
