Let’s face it: we could all use a little inspiration every now and then. And thanks to Jay-Z, we sure got a dose.
According to HuffPost, the famed rapper took a moment at his concert at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio to serve up some inspiration to a young fan attending his 4:44 Tour. Stopping his own show, Jay-Z offered that nothing can — or should — keep the unidentified 9-year-old girl from being anything she wants:
“At this very moment, America is way more sexist than they are racist,” he said. “But you, young lady, you got the potential to be the next president of the United States. You believe that.”
Apparently this isn’t the first time Jay-Z has used his show to share a message of empowerment; HuffPost says he also said during his Nashville show that even though there’s “a lot going on in the world right now,” he knows that “love will always trump hate.”
Preach it, Jay.
