As if Jay Z could get any cooler in the eyes of his fans.

During his Greensboro, N.C. concert on Sunday, the rapper invited 12-year-old Justin onto the stage to rap one his songs. (Read more of the behind-the-scenes story on TMZ.com)

But Jay Z is no fool. He knows some of his lyrics can be controversial. So he stopped Justin from rapping the part of the song that references "drug dealing," and instead had him jump to the next part of the song.

Watch for yourself to see how Justin performed under the pressure.

After he was done, Justin whispered to Jay Z, which Jay Z then repeated to the audience: "After all that, he said, 'Can I meet you backstage?"

"Yes, you can," Jay Z replied, which was, of course, met with uproarous laughter and applause from the audience.

Pretty sure that's a night that boy will never forget.
