Aww, Daddy Jay!
Jay Z allowed a 12-year-old fan to perform his “Clique” verse during a concert Sunday, January 5.
According to TMZ, Jay Z found the young fan with a “Can I rap for you?” sign in the crowd of his “Magna Carter World Tour” during the Greensboro, North Carolina stop.
The fan raps along to “Clique” without a backing track or beat. At one point, Jay Z stops the young man.
“Not the drug dealing part,” Jay Z says. “Go back to the numbers.” The “drug dealing part” refers to the following line from the selection. “G.O.O.D. Music drug-dealing cousin // Ain’t nothing fuckin’ with we.”
The young fan continues rapping the verse and shockingly avoids using profanity, replacing expletives during the performance. (Future rapper?)
Jay Z embraces the fan after the performance and agrees to meet him backstage.
After all of that, the young boy asks, ‘Can I meet you backstage?, and Hov says agrees and that he’s got a surprise for him. Wonder what it was..
