Trending: State of streaming: Twitch’s new growth category; the Ninja effect on Mixer; ‘Fortnite’ viewership down

This might be my favorite picture of 2015 so far: It’s Los Angeles Clippers owner and former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer hanging out with his pal Shawn Carter — also known as Jay-Z — at tonight’s game in L.A.

Maybe it’s Ballmer’s Seahawks polo. Maybe it’s the Clippers’ caption — Jay-Z stopped by to hang out with Ballmer, not the other way around. Maybe it’s just the sheer amount of net value between the two legends — Ballmer at $22.5 billion, Jay-Z at $1 billion (when combined with Beyonce, who, by the way, was also at the game).

You gotta wonder what they talked about. Technology, perhaps, given that Jay-Z is actually pretty tech-savvy. In fact, the rapper partnered with Microsoft back in 2010 for a special online game on Bing to help market Jay’s first book, Decoded.

Or, maybe Ballmer taught Jay-Z some dance moves.
