Videos: Jay-Z Dedicates “Forever Young” To Nelson Mandela While Closing Out His Show At Staples Center


Jay Z closed out his Magna Carter World Tour show at Staples Center, Los Angeles with class last night. For the final song of the night, Hov dedicated a performance of “Young Forever” to the late Nelson Mandela, who sadly passed away last week. “We want to dedicate this song to Nelson Mandela… A great man… Spent 27 years in prison, came out to be President… All dreams are possible… So anybody out there that got a dream, y’all chase that motherf-cker down as hard as you can… Let that great man stand as an example of what you can do,” Jay told the crowd as a portrait of Mandela filled the giant screen behind him.(via
