Watch Jay Z Bring a 12-Year-Old On Stage To Rap "Clique" A Capella

At the January 5 stop of his "Magna Carter World Tour" in Greensboro, N.C., Jay Z reportedly spotted a kid in the crowd holding a sign that read "Can I rap for you?" Hov obliged the kid—who turned out to be a 12-year-old named Justin—and brought him up onstage.

There, young Justin assumed the hubris of a platinum rapper, telling Jay that he didn't need a beat. Then he rapped Jay's "Clique" verse a capella, much to Hov's amusement. Jay did stop him midway through to tell him not to rap the part about dealing drugs, but otherwise looked giddy as the boy rocked a sold out arena.

After he finished, Jay excitedly gave the kid a bear-hug and then laughed as he told the audience that Justin asked him if it was okay to meet him backstage. All rap concerts should be this cute.
