The fatal gang rape of a young student on a bus in Delhi in 2012 led to an outpouring of anger over frightening levels of violence against women.
Hov recently showed off his softer side when he brought a 12-year-old onstage to rap a verse for him. Justin and his mother Angela reportedly had held up signs saying “Can I rap for you” at two different shows on Jay Z’s Magna Carter World Tour in the hopes of grabbing his attention. Some people are calling it a publicity stunt, but either way, it’s a treat to see Blue’s dad act so adorable.
A visibly nervous Justin rapped a competent (and clean) version of Jigga’s verse from “Clique,” sans music. Hov interrupted him to request that he leave out a line about drug dealing. But he made up for it by telling the crowd that he’d grant Justin’s request to hang out with him backstage.
Police arrested a 25-year-old man over that attack in which the young girl suffered severe internal injuries and had apparently been slashed with a sharp object.
The attacks add to a grim catalogue of sexual assaults in India, many of which have sparked domestic and international outrage.
