Jay-Z was joined on stage by a 12 year-old fan who performed the rapper's verse from 'Clique' during a show on Sunday night (January 5). Scroll down to watch now.

The rapper was joined on stage in Greensboro, North Carolina by the young fan after spotting a sign he was holding which read: "Can I Rap For You?" Bringing the boy up in front of thousands of fans, he then instructed him on how to perform a child friendly version of 'Clique', a track Jay Z recorded with Kanye West.

Performing the verse acapella, the young boy is stopped by Jay Z at one point as he says, "Not the drug dealing part. Go back to the numbers," in reference to the line "GOOD Music drug-dealing cousin. Ain't nothing fuckin' with we." The fan then proceeds with a less profane version of the rap.

Having performed live, the boy embraces Jay Z and whispers something in his ear. Announcing what he has heard to the audience, Jay Z says: "After all of that, he said, 'Can I meet you backstage?' Yes," he says. "I've got something for you too."

The Greensboro gig was the latest stop in Jay Z's Magna Carta world tour. Late last year, in Los Angeles, the rapper paid tribute to the late Nelson Mandela prior to a performance of 'Young Forever'.
