Hip-hop superstar Jay Z returned home on Saturday (12Jul14) to make a surprise appearance at the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival in New York.

The music icon joined his rapper pal Jay Electronica on stage at the annual event and played Young, Gifted & Black, We Made It, Shiny Suit Theory and Psa, much to the delight of the audience.

Electronica also introduced another Brooklyn native, Talib Kweli, to perform Just Begun with him, as well as MAC Miller and J. Cole.

Jay Z followed up the guest appearance by racing to the MetLife Stadium in nearby New Jersey, where he later hit the stage with his wife Beyonce for their second consecutive night at the venue, as part of their joint On The Run tour.
