As the world continues to mourn the loss of Nelson Mandela, many entertainers are paying homage to the former South African president through various mediums. Most recently hip hop mogul Jay Z dedicated his 2009 track “Young Forever” to Mandela during his Monday tour stop at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.

“We want to dedicate this song to Nelson Mandela. A great man,” Hov declared to concertgoers. “Spent 27 years in prison, came out to be president…All dreams are possible. Tonight I'm living my dream in front of y'all. So anyone out there who got a dream, y'all chase that motherf---er down as hard as you can. Let that great man [Mandela] stand as an example of what you can do.”
