Jay Z knows how to keep friends in every corner of Hollywood with the rapper attending a reported “business meeting” with his unlikely friend Jake Gyllenhaal yesterday and it seems their discussions went well as the rapper seemed more than happy to hug a male fan when leaving the building.
The hip-hop mogul was spotted in the Meatpacking District yesterday afternoon where he is believed to have attended a meeting with his friend, Love & Other Drugs actor Gyllenhaal, who was seen following the 'Holy Grail' rapper out of the New York City building.

It doesn't appear to have been a serious meeting with Jay Z, 44, wearing a rain coat, grey hoodie and jeans while Jake braced himself against the cold with a large beanie with his hood on top.
While it's not known what the meeting was about, the pair have actually been friends for a few years and have been spotted enjoying a number of nights out together including last year, when Jake joined Jay Z, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland at a basketball.

A source told People magazine at the time that they embraced each other with a big hug while the year before, Jake partied with Pharrell Williams, Beyonce, her mother Tina and sister Solange.
They were also spotted dining together with a group of friends on a separate occasion. Meanwhile, it seems Jay Z's mood was lifted after the meeting wearing a broad smile and even welcoming an excited middle-aged fan who couldn't believe he had bumped into the superstar who hails from Brooklyn.

Rather than send his security team to brush the man away, Jay Z kindly shook hands with the fan and even gave him a manly hug before hopping into his limo.

It looks like Jay Z's wife Beyonce and daughter Blue Ivy may have also attended the meeting as the girls were spotted exiting a similar-looking building yesterday with the diva carrying the two-year-old, who wore a silver puffer jacket on top of her red and blue dress.
Beyonce, 32, looked uber chic in a beige jacket with black and red stripes teamed with green trousers and matching heels.
