Since beginning his 4:44 Tour in October, JAY-Z has captivated fans with his pristine catalog and reflective dialogue. As he continues to truck his way through the nation, on Tuesday night (Dec. 5), he instilled a heavy dose of nostalgia onto the hip-hop world when he reunited with his former collaborator Jaz-O in Chicago. 

After his show at the United Center, JAY was spotted with Jaz and No I.D. backstage, as the three figures posed for a picture. In the early '90s, JAY and Jaz were a formidable tandem who partnered up on tracks such as "Hawaiian Sophie" and "The Originators." For Hov's 1996 debut album Reasonable Doubt, Jaz produced his hit-single "Ain't no N---a" featuring Foxy Brown. In the early 2000s, the two MCs were embroiled in a lyrical spat, exchanging barbs throughout the years with Hov taking aim on "Blueprint 2" and "December 4." 

Once the picture of the two stars circulated on social media, Twitter instantly rejoiced. Take a look at some of the reactions below.
