Jay Z payed tribute to Nelson Mandela in L.A. last night for the grand finale of his Magna Carter World Tour.

Hov dedicated the final song of the evening, “Forever Young” to the former South African president who lost his life last week. “We want to dedicate this song to Nelson Mandela. A great man who spent 27 years in prison, came out to be President. All dreams are possible, so anybody out there that got a dream, y’all chase that motherf*cker down as hard as you can. Let that great man stand as an example of what you can do,” the legendary New York rapper told the crowd as a portrait of Mandela flooded the arena.
