Jay Z Dedicates "Forever Young" To Nelson Mandela

Jay Z pays tribute to Nelson Mandela in concert.

During his Magna Carta Tour, Jay Z has dedicated "Forever Young" to the memory and legacy of Nelson Mandela

Jay Z most recently made this dedication during his Los Angeles, California tour stop yesterday (December 9). Mandela's image was displayed as Jay Z ran through "Forever Young," a selection pulled from Jay Z's Blueprint 3 album, which was released in 2009. 

Mandela, a South African activist and an iconic leader of the anti-apartheid movement, passed away Thursday (December 5). He was 95.

Jay also paid tribute to Mandela during his San Diego, California tour stop. 

"You can do any mothafuckin' thing you set your mind to," Jay said, explaining that Mandela is an example of triumph through struggle.
