12-Year-Old Rapper Named Justin Steals The Show From Jay Z

A 12-year-old fan named Justin upstaged Jay Z at his own concert, joining the 44-year-old rapper onstage toward the end of his show. At the concert in Greensboro, N.C., after reportedly taking the time to acknowledge his fans in the audience, Hov noticed a young man who was holding a sign that read, "Can I rap for you?"

Justin made it a point to tell Jay Z that he didn't need background music to spit bars, launching into a verse of Jay Z's from the "Cruel Summer" track "Clique." Employing his fatherly instincts, Jay interrupted Justin to keep him from referencing drugs before then allowing him to continue with the performance amid cheer from the audience. Before stepping down off the stage, the audacious young rapper got permission to meet Jay Z backstage.

Take a look at the impressive performance below.
