Jay-Z's song produced by newbie

Los Angeles, July 6 (IANS) Rapper and record producer Jay-Z, who discovered singers Rihanna and Rita Ora, has now given a chance to a teenager in the music industry.

A 16-year-old Canadian girl, Ebony Oshunrinde, has been chosen by Jay-Z to be a producer on his new album "Magna Carta Holy Grail".

Oshunrinde got the chance after she passed a reggae-inspired beat composed by her to friend Travis Scott, who works with the rapper, reports thesun.co.uk.

"It's a really good feeling. I want to show young people that they can do it," said Oshunrinde.

"Travis texted me and said, 'I'm about to change your life'. Usually, that doesn't happen to 16-year-olds. A lot more people want to work with me now. It's pretty cool," she added.
