Powerhouse rapper Jay Z stopped mid-concert recently to give a seemingly impromptu message to a little girl who was in the front row. Jay Z told the little girl that America is a lot more sexist than it is racist currently and that when she grows up she can be anything, even the president.
The rapper then asked the 9-year-old African-American girl if she could count. When he realized that 9-year-olds can do far more complicated math than count down from 10 to 1, he asked her for a countdown so he could resume his song from the N-ggas in Paris album.
The rapper who has penned chart-topping lyrics such as "I've got 99 problems but a b-tch ain't one," took the time to continue his sea of female empowerment to send this special message to the little girl.
The uplifting moment was caught on video.
Jay Z has been a very vocal detractor of President Donald Trump and supported Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency in 2016. While he is noted for his many anti-Trump remarks and sentiments, he himself is often under fire for his many lyrics that are widely found to be degrading to women.
In an incident during the presidential campaign last year, Jay Z held a performance for Hillary that was filled with foul lyrics to which Trump called him to the task.
Trump asked the public to imagine if he had used similar words, what people would say about that. Granted, Jay Z is not planning to run for president, but Trump still made a valid point. It is of note to mention that Hillary herself has lambasted Trump for what she deemed to be the use of lewd language.
Jay Z told the BBC last September that he feels President Trump is a "joke." He went on to say that he can't even use the phrase "with all due respect" when referring to Trump and that he could only truthfully use the words "with all disrespect." During that same conversation, the rap mogul turned Trump's presidency into a racial thing and noted that black people are resilient and have been through things worse than President Trump. That seems to be an understatement?
Whether the impromptu message to the little girl was staged or not remains to be known, but either way you look at it, it's sufficient to say that a rapper who uses lyrics like Jay Z to degrade women, then telling a child that America is overtly sexist and that she can still be president once she is older is about as hypocritical as one can be.
Here's a womanizing gem from Jay Z...
"You ain't no better because you don't be f*cking with rappers, you only f*ck with actors, you're still getting f*cked backwards - So just take your shirt off, don't hit me with that church sh*t - B*tch, b*tch, b*tch, don't make me say it thrice" - Jay Z
