Hannibal Buress shares a story about Beyonce, Jay-Z and an encounter that goes horribly wrong.
Hannibal Buress is an American stand-up comedian, actor, writer and producer. At the moment he is probably best known for his role as Lincoln in Broad City. This man seems to have an endless amount of stories that revolve around him meeting celebrities.
He was hanging out with his friends who you may know as Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa. He tells a story about when this pair met Jay Z and Beyonce at an afterparty for Vic Mensa’s NYC show at Governer’s Ball.
While about to take a photo of the group Jay-Z points to Hannibal and tells him to be cool.
“This is a situation where the club is too loud to say what you really want to say,” Buress said. “I wanted to be like, ‘Nah, I don’t’ want to be cool. This is a great picture. It’s two friends of mine from Chicago that are doing well; they’re hanging out with you—one of the biggest rappers in the world—and your wife—one of the biggest stars in the world … I’m not gonna be cool.’
“But I couldn’t say that because it was too loud,” Buress said. “It would’ve been weird to yell at Jay Z. I just took it.”
