News: Jay Z's Surprise "Magna Carter" Teen Performer Hints At Record Deal

A female teenager may be on the verge of blowing up after jumping onto rap mogul Jay Z's Magna Carter World Tour concert stage last week and performing for fans in Chicago.
According to 19-year-old artist Monique Burrell, one of Jay's guys asked for her number following the impromptu performance.
The fan who was pulled onstage Thursday and rapped at Jay Z's concert says something happened afterward that could land her a recording deal with Hova himself. Monique Burrell (rap name is MoBoTheGreat) tells TMZ after her impromptu performance -- which brought the house down -- the head of Jay's security team approached her and asked for her digits. The guy told her Jay personally wanted him to get her number so he could follow up later. So far ... no call. But it IS unusual for the rap mogul to ask for the phone number of the people he pulls up on stage. (TMZ)
Prior to the number request, Young Hov invited the teen onto the stage to perform.
During his "Magna Carter World Tour" at Chicago's United Center on Thursday night, Hov brought up 19-year-old female MC Monique, who previously rapped for him at the "Blueprint 3? tour when she was 16. After expressing the hell she went through to get to the concert, the confident teen grabbed the mic and gave it her all. "You gotta be quiet so I can rap for him. I'm tryna get signed tonight and sh*t," she told the crowd before laying down some bars. While Jay didn't offer her a record deal, he did respond with some encouraging words. "You just told your whole entire life story, huh?" he said. "I would've done the same sh*t. F*ck that. It might not happen again." He gave her a big hug and said, "I love you," before she made her way off stage. (Rap-Up)
A few days prior, a lucky concertgoer's mother spoke out on allowing her son to rap with Jay Z at a separate concert.
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. (TMZ)
Buzz behind the entire incident heated up the Internet last Monday (January 6).
Jay Z made one boy's dream come true over the weekend. The rapper was in Greensboro, N.C., last night for his Magna Carter worldwide tour, and while performing for a stadium full of people, one specific fan caught the attention of Hov. A 12-year-old boy was holding up a sign that read, "Can I rap for you?" Clearly, he was giving Jay an offer he couldn't refuse, because Beyoncé's man invited the young admirer on stage and handed him the mike. (E! Online)
