Jay Z invites fan hoping to get record deal on stage

JAY Z has offered a 19-year-old fan a shot at stardom following the teenager's performance at a gig in Chicago, Illinois on Thursday night (09Jan14).

Earlier this month (05Jan14), the 99 Problems hitmaker invited another 12 year old from the audience to join him onstage, but his latest raw recruit could find herself on her hero's label.

Aspiring rapper Monique Burrell held up a sign during Jay's Magna Carta Holy Grail concert that read, "I was 16 when I rapped on stage with you for BP3. I'm 19 and READY!"

Jay Z had previously invited the young MC to join him during his Blueprint 3 tour, and he decided to give her a second chance at stardom.

Instead of trying to imitate her idol, Burrell opted to impress him with an a capella freestyle, noting she was trying to score a record deal with Jay's Roc-a-Fella Records.

Jay praised Burrell's courage and said, "I would've done the same s**t," before giving her a hug and sending her off stage.

According to TMZ.com, the rapper's head of security asked for her information.
