He recalled that ‘I’m playing rhythms and like Jay-Z is there and we’re kind of drinking, chilling out, and like I like him, it comes up and it’s like a freestyle in my ear.

Around “the end of the night” on “the third night I’m there,” everyone was “saying goodnight” and the whole party was “drunk,” he said.
I had the thought, ‘Will I hug Beyonce?’ because he wasn’t sure of the exact level of friendly intimacy he had managed to achieve with her. ‘What is the protocol?’
During the first two nights, he had just said goodbye to her, but on the third night he felt that “we are all getting to know each other” and his typical move at that stage is a hug.
‘No one noticed’: However, the tension deflated when Jay-Z said, ‘Okay bro, see you tomorrow’, and Benny realized that ‘no one noticed’ his problem, including Beyonce .
And I remember that I came in for the hug, okay? And then I said, “Oh, I’d like to kiss him on the cheek. That’s what you do,” he argued.
However, ‘we just got a little lost and I’m like, I’m like, I’m definitely in the corner of some kind of lip.’
Zane buried his face in his hands laughing and saying, ‘No!’ And Benny remembered, ‘And I said,’ Oh my God! ‘ I say, “This is the worst thing in my life.”

Benny joked that he thought ‘I was going to be in a coffin tomorrow’ and said lightly that ‘my life passed before my eyes’.
