At Jay Z’s show Sunday in Greensboro, he noticed a kid holding up a sign that read “Can I rap for you?” So he invited the kid, a 12-year-old named Justin, on stage. Justin proceeded to recite the clean version of Jay’s “Clique” verse with authority, only pausing when Jay interrupted and asked him to omit the “drug-dealing cousin” line. (Not clean enough, apparently.) The kid then had the balls to ask Mr. Carter if they could hang backstage, to which the
Samsung spokesman superstar rapper agreed. According to TMZ, this was not a setup; Justin and his mom, Angela, had attended the previous night’s show in Charlotte and hadn’t been noticed, so they spontaneously bought tickets for Greensboro and tried again. You’re making the other moms look bad, Angela! Watch it unfold below.
