Jay-Z told the crowd: "Let's get serious for a minute. This show is dedicated to Kanye West who had a death in the family. We got you, Kanye. Stay strong." He continued, "She was a mother to everybody... We all came in the crib and she fed us when we had nothin', when there was no record deals. She brought us in. She was a mother for a community, and a mother for one of Chicago's greatest heroes." Jay-Z also admitted that Kanye is struggling to accept his sudden loss. He says, "I don't think it really hit him yet, but I'm asking Chicago to pray and send your prayers and your love out to my brother and to his family."
