Jay Z has been on a roll with saying objectively awesome stuff while zipping across the country on his 4:44 Tour. During his Nov. 19 stop in Cleveland, Jay addressed a young fan in the audience and assured her she could one day become America’s president.

“You could be anything that you wanna be in the world, OK?” Jay told the 9-year-old. “I gotta tell you something. At this very moment, America is way more sexist than they are racist. And you, young lady, you got the potential to be the next president of the United States. You believe that.” Jay then asked the young fan to help him with the countdown to his next track in the set, the incomparable “N****s in Paris.”

 For Cleveland’s show, the Fader notes, Jay and Roc Nation also gifted hundreds of free tickets to local foster kids. “Thanksgiving is coming around and a lot of them will be depressed, they will be in a state of depression,” #FosterCare creator Kevin Gilmore, who recently met Roc Nation COO Desiree Perez, told WKYC Sunday. “At least this is something that’s memorable, that they had a good time. It was a Jay Z concert.”
Jay has also recently been saying objectively awesome shit off the stage. Earlier this month, Jay penned a powerful op-ed for the New York Times slamming Meek Mill’s prison sentence and the criminal justice system at large.
