12-Year-Old Rapper's Performance

NOT A SET-UP

Jay Z
did NOT pull a fast one on his audience in Greensboro, N.C., Sunday night ... when he brought a 12-year-old boy up on stage who stole the show -- it was all spontaneous.

We spoke with Angela, who took her 12-year-old son Justin to the concert in Charlotte Saturday.  She says Justin's dream was to "get noticed" by Hova and he was crushed when he was overlooked as he sat in the 8th row.

Angela says on the ride home they decided to give it one more try, and she bought tickets to the Greensboro concert the next day.  She says she was lucky and scored front row seats.

Angela tells us nothing was set up.  Justin jumped up with his sign and this time Jigga noticed. 

She says after the concert Jay Z was true to his word and took them backstage.  They talked for 5 minutes about personal stuff.  No numbers were exchanged and Jay said nothing about signing the kid.

He crushed nothing, unless there were bugs on the stage floor we couldnt see. He was a little kid yelling into a microphone. Stick damn near any kid from the projects in front of people and hand him a mic and he'll yell into the mic and jump around too. Nothing special here.
Well except a crappy mother for bringing such a young child to a rap concert.

"She bought tickets to the Greensboro concert the next day. She says she was lucky and scored front row seats."

So let's see - you bought tickets to a Jay-Z concert that was happening the next day, and you just "happened" to be lucky and were able to buy front row tickets the day before? BS. She slipped up by saying that - it was a setup. No one is getting lucky and getting front row tickets the day before.

Cut me a freaking break. The kid's mama was bummed that they had 8th row seats so she turns around and scores front rows for the next performance. Front rows being maybe $150 or more a pop. MMM hmmm, makes perfect sense. The kid could have been completely tone deaf, or had a serious stuttering problem or just about anything but lo and behold!!! He's a budding rapper!! Amazing how things work out isn't it? Amazing that they would expect us to believe it.

Sorry, it doesn't pass the sniff test. It was a set up and they wanted it to look spontaneous.
I believe it ranks right up there with Kim K saying that she wants privacy or Lindsay is sober or well, you get my drift.

This is bull. How in the world did she manage to get front row seats the day before? Unless she paid crazy scalper prices, which I doubt. It's a set up, they won't admit it, makes for a nicer fairy tale story.
