Jay Z made one boy's dream come true over the weekend.

The rapper was in Greensboro, N.C., last night for his Magna Carter worldwide tour, and while performing for a stadium full of people, one specific fan caught the attention of Hov.

A 12-year-old boy was holding up a sign that read, "Can I rap for you?" Clearly, he was giving Jay an offer he couldn't refuse, because Beyoncé's man invited the young admirer on stage and handed him the mike.

The young fan took the microphone and managed to put his nerves aside before beginning to rap Jay's verse from "Clique."

He made sure to steer clear of the curse words, but Hov had to cut in when the lyrics began talking about some not-age-appropriate things. Jay told him to skip "the drug dealing part" of the song. "Go back to the numbers," he said.

So, he did—and killed it! Just as he finished, the audio for the track came on and the audience roared with cheers. Jay, all smiles, gave a huge hug to his young pal, who had one more request.

"Can I meet you backstage?" he asked, and guess what? Jay said yes to that, too.
