Justin Bieber has friends in high places -- and no, we're not making a pun for his occasionally marijuana-heavy extracurricular activities. The Biebs was spotted hanging out with Hova himself, Jay-Z, over the weekend, and rubbing elbows with A-list hip-hop figures at Jay's Legends of Summer tour stop in Miami.
"Concerts are pretty much performance art," Jay-Z says in the intro of his 'Picasso Baby' performance art clip. "The venues change, and just by nature when the venues change, the performances change. You do a smaller venue and it's a been more intimate," he continued. "You can feel the energy of the people."
And boy, could New York City feel his energy.

Make a mental note or calendar reminder now for a double dose of Jay this Friday.
Jay Z has accomplished a lot with his career. He's on track to beat the Beatles record for most No.1 albums, but maybe he thought there was something slowing down his progress. That dang hyphen! It's messin' with Hov's flow! So that's why Jay Z is dropping that pesky punctuation from his name.
