GREENSBORO, N.C. - One young Jay-Z fan got the chance of a lifetime at a show in Greensboro, N.C. on Sunday night.  Video of Jay-Z on stage with the little boy named Justin surfaced Monday, and his story is quickly spreading online.  

TMZ.com posted video that shows Jay-Z introducing Justin, who tells the crowd he's from Maryland.  TMZ says the boy held up a sign in the crowd that read, "Can I rap for you?"-- and then he got his wish.  

The boy told Jay-Z he didn't need music before breaking into a solid (and clean) version of Clique.  As Justin continued, the rapper interrupted him to tell him to leave out a line about drugs.  When the boy was done, he asked Jay-Z if he could meet him back stage, and his request was granted.

TMZ reports they spoke to Justin's mom, and it wasn't a set up.  She said her son's dream was to get noticed by Jay-Z, and he was crushed when that didn't happen at a show in Charlotte on Saturday.  So, they gave it another try on Sunday.  

TMZ also reports his mom told them Justin did go backstage after the show.
