Jay Z has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela during his 'Magna Carter World Tour'.

The hip-hop star dedicated a performance of 'Young Forever' to the former President of South Africa, who passed away on December 5.


"We want to dedicate this song to Nelson Mandela," Jay Z told the audience at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. "A great man, spent 27 years in prison, came out to be president. All dreams are possible.

"Tonight I'm living my dream in front of y'all. So anyone out there who got a dream, y'all chase that motherf**ker down as hard as you can."

As the song played out, fans began waving their phones in the air as a mark of respect to Mandela.

Stars and public figures from across the globe have paid tribute to the iconic civil rights pioneer, including Prince William, David Beckham, Idris Elba and Muhammad Ali.
