Jay Z

Brings Another Fan On Stage

Jay Z may be the next Ed McMahon ... 'cause his search for new rap stars continued last night in Chicago during a concert -- and this time he chose a girl looking for a second chance.

HOVA brought the girl on stage at the United Center after he spotted her holding a sign saying, "When I was 16 I rapped on this stage with you. I'm 19 now and I'm ready."

The girl -- named Monique -- laid down a track about her own life ... clearly impressing Mr. Carter in the process.

Monique then proved she's got some serious cojones ... and Jay's reaction is priceless.

I am the furthest thing from a fan of rap music, but I find what he is doing to be very sweet of him. What a dream come true that must be for the kid

STFU    

Its disturbing J-Z thinks giving back to the AA community is giving someone a rap contract or doing free concerts. GTFOH. . No wonder the drug dealer married a HS dropout. Only in America.

Just because he is fake friends with a flailing president he has become (and his wife) WAY too self important. His old music was okay, his and Kanye's newer stuff is garbage.
