"You can be president if you believe it," rapper tells little girl

Jay Z took time out during his concert to encourage a young fan to be whatever she sets her mind to.

During a live show in Cleveland, Ohio, the rap icon took out time to give an inspirational speech to a young girl. He told the nine-year-old girl to set her sights high and believe in herself after spotting her from the stage at Cleveland's Quicken Loans Arena on Monday night.

"At this very moment America is way more sexist than they are racist, but you young lady, you got the potential to be the next president of the United States, you believe that," the rapper said.

JAY-Z's latest 4:44 tour stop also saw him gift hundreds of tickets to foster parents and children from the local area, WKYC reports.

Back in September 2017, it was reported that Jay Z and longtime friend business partner, Kanye West were in talks toresolve their conflict. Their feud had ignited last year when Kanye West went on stage last year, on his concert to call out JAY-Z, Beyonce, and their daughter Blue Ivy. Jay-Z said Kanye crossed the line when he brought his wife and daughter into their dispute.

However, TMZ reports that Kanye has reached out to Jay-Z bury the hatchet. It would be recalled that Jay called Kanye out in the song 'Kill Jay Z' of his latest album, "4:44" as a result of the feud. TMZ sources say both are reconciling, adding they have the classic love/hate relationship and frequently bounce back as this isn't about the money.

Kanye and Jay are embroiled in a financial dispute over Yeezy's Tidal deal and millions are in contention.

Meanwhile, Jay-Z and his wife Beyonce welcomed a set of twins in June 2017. Jay Z was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in June 2017(the first Hip-Hop artist to receive this induction).
