Jay-Z stops show to tell 9-year-old she can be President some day

November 21, 2017

And he knows a few things about U.S. Presidents.

Perpetually un-retired rapper, entrepreneur, and father of three Jay-Z had a tour stop in Cleveland last night, and he momentarily stopped the show to offer some words of encouragement to a nine-year-old girl in the crowd.

“You can be anything you want to be in this world,” Jay told her. “At this very moment America is way more sexist than they are racist, but you young lady, you got the potential to be the next president of the United States, you believe that.”

The crowd, naturally, erupted in cheers. Watch the goosebump-inducing moment below, courtesy of @Jay-Z Daily:
