Jay Z gave one young fan the chance of a life time, when a plucky 12-year-old asked if he could rap for him at a recent gig, only for his wish to be granted. Watch a video of the performance below. 

As Metro reports, the event took place at a Jay Z concert in Greensboro, North Carolina over the weekend when The Hov spotted youngster Justin Kyer holding up a banner which read ‘Can I rap for you?’.

Jay Z then naturally invited Kyer on stage to perform a verse from the hit song Clique. It was pretty impressive, with The Hov and the crowd giving the kid a rapturous response. 

However, Hov did encourage the youth to omit some of the more explicit lyrics, saying: "Just skip the drug dealing part and go back to the numbers."
