“You can be anything you want to be in this world,” JAY-Z said. “At this very moment America is way more sexist than they are racist, but you young lady, you got the potential to be the next president of the United States, you believe that.”

The rapper is currently on tour supporting his latest album 4:44, which is reportedly his highest grossing solo tour to date.
