Justin Timberlake may have had to work on his 38th birthday as his Man of the Woods tourcontinues, but the post-show party was worth the wait. He and a bunch of his friends got together at The Grill in NYC after Justin’s Madison Square Garden concert on Thursday, and someone who he wasn’t expecting showed up as a huge surprise: Mase, aka one of JT’s favorite rappers ever. When the rapper walked in, the crowd parted for his entrance, and a visibly shocked Justin literally fell to the floor with a smile across his face.
Justin has been open about the fact that his two favorite rappers are Mase and André 3000, and even Jessica Biel knows without a doubt. Mase’s surprise performance was captured on video, and it’s adorable to see Justin’s reaction. Despite the slightly less eventful birthday date night when Jessica fell asleep in the car, it looks like Justin’s birthday celebrations turned out alright. Watch the video ahead, and see a few other snaps captured by Questlove at the party.
