Jay Z made a surprise guest appearance at P Diddy's show at Brooklyn's Barclays Center for the opening night of the Bad Boy Family Reunion tour.

"You've been there with me through my ups and downs. Whenever I get in trouble, this is the one I call. This is my strategist right here, this my brother, this B.I.G.'s brother, this Brooklyn's own," P Diddy said as he introduced the hip hop mogul on what would have been the Notorious B.I.G.'s 44th birthday.
