It was during the weekend that the King of Hip-Hop thought it would be nice to make a young boy's dream come true. Jay-Z, while performing in his “Magna Carter World Tour” this past Sunday, gave a twelve-year old boy the chance to perform on stage in Greensboro, N.C.
Jay couldn't help but notice that during the concert there was a young fan who was holding up a sign in the audience. TMZ reports that this particular fan was a twelve-year old boy whose sign read, “Can I rap for you?” It was only moments later that Jay-Z invited the young boy onstage.
The young fan, feeling the pressure of being surrounded by thousands but also of being next to his idol, surprised everyone when he began rapping the lyrics to Jay-Z's hit song “Clique.” According to E! Online, Jay told the young boy to skip "the drug dealing part" of the song and to “go back to the numbers." Sure enough the young fan agreed and what followed next was a performance that left the crowd in cheers.
Even though it only lasted couple of minutes, Jay was able to give a young boy a moment that he'll cherish for a lifetime.
