Jay Z Staged A ‘Candid’ Photo With Kevin Hart Because He Is A Damn Pro

Jay Z knows what looks good (hell, the man is married to Beyoncé) so it?s no surprise that he was caught directing a photographer at a basketball game on Thursday night.

The famed rapper and business mogul was at Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers and was spotted being friendly with comedian Kevin Hart. Their interaction ? obviously ? garnered the attention of the paparazzi. Um, hello, two big stars chatting it up? Yeah, that?s a photo op.

As Jay noticed the photographers snapping away, smiling ear-to-ear, he said, ?Take the picture while we?re talking? to the person behind the camera. He then immediately resumed play-laughing/hand-shaking with Hart.

The video of him calling the shots is hilarious:

The moment is so incredibly cheesy while also being so dang real. Who among us has not directed a photographer? Jay Z isn?t new here, he knows his angles. And Twitter LOVES that about him.

Here?s what everyone?s been saying about the interaction: 

For what it?s worth, Jay?s efforts were solid ? the resulting photographs are fantastic: 

Moral of the story: Always listen to HOVA.
