Jay Z Dedicates ‘Young Forever’ to Nelson Mandela

In honor of the late Nelson Mandela, who was memorialized today, Jay Z dedicated one of his most heartfelt songs to the civil rights icon.

Hov shouted out Mandela before performing his song ‘Young Forever’ during the Magna Carta World Tour stop in Los Angeles last night (Dec. 9).

“We want to dedicate this song to Nelson Mandela. A great man,” said the rapper. “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—er down as hard as you can. Let that great man stand as an example of what you can do.”

Several artists have dedicated music to Mandela since his passing at the age of 95. R. Kelly recently paid tribute with his song, ‘Soldiers Heart.’
