In a series of photos posted to Instagram on Monday (May 29), Roc Nation photographer Lenny S. reflected on a series of special guest visits during the Paris shows of Beyoncé’s Renaissance tour.
And in the fourth photo, the “Mask Off” rapper can be seen enjoying a private conversation with Hov, who was all smiles.
Other celebrities in attendance included Italian rapper-producer Vegas Jones, Kris Jenner’s sometimes boyfriend Corey Gamble, Hidden Cities lead singer Daniel Plenge, talent manager (and Kelly Rowland‘s husband) Tim Weatherspoon, and The-Dream.

Back in 2021, Future sparked a debate when he fired off a series of tweets where he claimed that he was bigger than JAY-Z.
“I’m the only one can get YE to pull up whenever wherever…tuh,” he wrote, referring to Kanye West’s surprise appearance during his Rolling Loud California set. “Everything I do is legendary or it won’t get done..tuh.”
Future then added: “In the streets I’m bigger then jigga. Ima run me a B up easy,” referring to JAY-Z’s billionaire status. “100Ms not the goal anymore. What’s on your Xmas list?? Mines getting everything they want…Ima save the rest for 2022. LOVE.”
The backlash was swift, with many wondering what Future was smoking to make such “ridiculous” statements. As Los Angeles Chargers linebacker Damon Lloyd said: “Y’all on herr saying Future catalog better than Jay-Z’s? Yea I’m off for the day.”
Another tweet read simply: “JAY-Z= BOSS. FUTURE=WHO?” and included a video clip of someone rapping a JAY-Z song word-for-word with the caption, “In honor of y’all losing y’all minds and saying Future is better than JAY-Z.”
Future then upped the ante last year when he claimed that he’d shoot his shot at Beyoncé if he and Jigga weren’t “cool.”
The Freebandz leader teamed up with Real Boston Richey on his “Bullseye 2” track, and after previously blessing the Atlanta rapper with an FBG chain, Future detailed his thoughts on not only hollering at Beyoncé but also being able to sleep with his ex-fiancée, Ciara.
“If my n-gga wasn’t Jigga, I’m the type to go after B,” he raps. “And I still smash on C, I got two-fifth on me, like the quarterback of the Chiefs, I’m in the field wit’ no cleats.”
But, apparently, it seems as though Future and JAY-Z have put aside their differences to support Beyoncé.
