On Saturday, Brooklyn played host to NYC's largest and longest running Hip-Hop cultural event, The Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival.  This year, Jay Z took time out from his own "On The Run" tour to pop in for a few songs and a very special presentation.

You'll recall that Jay did something similar a few months ago when he presented J. Cole with a Roc Nation chain during his birthday performance.
