Hero of the Week: Jay-Z Disrupts His Concert to Empower a 9-Year-Old Fan

Jay-Z stopped his concert in Cleveland, Ohio last week, when he spotted a 9-year-old fan in the audience. The spontaneous conversation encouraging the young girl to believe in herself sparked overwhelming support by the crowd.


“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.”

You can catch the viral moment here:

Many consider Jay-Z’s new album 4:44 to be a response to Beyoncé’s Lemonade.

The album, released earlier this year, appears to be one of his most personal and emotional yet. Many of the singles carry introspective themes on hip-hop culture, black culture, and his relationship with Beyoncé.

The single "4:44" is an open-apology to Beyoncé and his children. Jay-Z also reveals family secrets in his single “Smile,” about his mother being attracted to women.

In the last few years, Jay-Z has been very vocal about the inequality women face, re-examining how his own career has contributed to that narrative.

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Jay-Z shares some sobering words about the lyrics in his 1999 single, “Big Pimpin”.

“It was like, I can’t believe I said that. And kept saying it. What kind of animal would say this sort of thing? Reading it is really harsh.”

Now, however, it's clear that this father of three is doing his best to spread the only thing that matters, and that is, “love will always trump hate”.
