On Friday (7/22) Jay-Z attended Chris Rock and Kevin Hart's sold-out Rock Hart Only Headliners Allowed Tour at Madison Square Garden. The two iconic comedians were joined onstage by the legendary Dave Chappelle. The iconic image of the three comedy legends on stage with a live goat had social media abuzz on Monday morning.

Jay-Z sidekick Lenny "Kodak Lens" Santiago posted pics of Jay enjoying the show from the press box. Questlove, comedian Tony Rock and LeBron James' business manager Maverick Carter were in attendance as well.

Chappelle delivered a 20-minute set and returned to the stage after Rock and Hart finished. He spoke to the crowd about the cancel culture and the unity amongst comedians.

"Tonight, being with these guys means the world to me,” he explained. “They try to cancel people, but you have to understand something: I’ve been doing this for 35 years. Comedians, we go to their birthday parties, we go to their weddings, we go to their baby’s fucking baby showers, we go to each other’s funerals. But my man, these men, and women that do stand-up comedy have a culture that would be very hard for you to understand. I’ve said it before, each and everyone one of you, no matter what you believe, has a champion in our room and we would never silence each other. And when my brothers call me, I come running."
