Jay Z Gives Fan the Stage for a Second Time

Jay Z's still out to prove that his presence is charity, lending his stage to fans for a once in a lifetime kind of opportunity.

This time, though, Thursday (Jan. 9) at the United Center in Chicago for his Magna Carter World Tour, reports MissInfo, Hov pulled a fan on stage and she happened to be an up-and-coming rapper named MoBo the Great, who had already taken the stage with him circa his Blueprint 3 jaunt.

"Before I rap, I just want to say something," Mo said, when Jay handed her the mic. "I took the stage with this man right here at the Blueprint 3 concert when I was 16 and s--t. I have been to every f--king concert, waiting for this man so I can do this s--t again!"

The Kankakee, Ill., rapper then dropped a shoutout to Chicago and a near two-minute freestyle. "You betta sign me," she told Jay afterwards, catching her breath.

"We gon' get your number," he responded. "You just told your whole life story, huh? I would've done the same s--t. F--k that." He threw in a hug and an "I love you" to affirm his stance.

Previously, the side-eye choir tried to shade Jay for bringing a 12-year-old fan on stage and inviting him backstage, calling the tender moment "a hoax." And a report circulated that his "brand" suffers from a lack of public trust.

As for Mo, she's currently pushing her new independently released video, "F--k the Public," and is basking in the support she's received online since she took the stage with H-to-the-izzo. "[T]hank you so much to everyone who supported tonight. new followers, old followers, kankakee definitely turned up for me. i appreciate you," she tweeted. "thank you to God, my grandma, the united center and the man himself. Lets keep it moving."
