Jay-Z has paid tribute to the late anti-apartheid hero Nelson Mandela during his Magna Carter World Tour.
Jigga dedicated a performance of Young Forever to the former South African president, who died last week.
"We want to dedicate this song to Nelson Mandela," he told the audience at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. "A great man, spent 27 years in prison, came out to be president. All dreams are possible.
"Tonight I'm living my dream in front of y'all. So anyone out there who got a dream, y'all chase that motherf**ker down as hard as you can."
The crowd at the gig are reported by Digital Spy to have waved their mobile phones in the air as a mark of respect for the statesman.
A memorial event was held for Mandela yesterday.
