Brooklyn rap legend Jaz-O mentored Jay-Z back in the late 1980s and early 1990s before he shot to stardom. But somewhere along the way, the two were embroiled in a long-standing feud.
During the Chicago stop of his “4:44 Tour”, a photo of Jay-Z and Jaz-O backstage surfaced (alongside No ID), seemingly putting an end to the long-running beef.
No, Hov didn’t bring his mentor out on stage, but the photo appears to point to the fact that they’ve put their issues aside and are now in a better place.
It’s great to see, after all the years, the two former friends have grown past their feud. But, will it result in a collaboration? Music together? That remains to be seen.
But, if you follow the conversation on social media, it appears that’s what fans want.
Jaz-O and Hov on the gram brought tears to my eyes man
