Here on BFF we celebrate everything that ties Best Friends, and what couldn’t be better than showcasing every week, our favorite celeb BFFs! Celebrities are constantly in the limelight and it’s obvious that they need that one person they can lean on, which brings us to this week’s favorite pair of Celeb BFFS:

Jay-Z & Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith

Wait … what? Ty Ty? WHO IS TY TY?

If you’re a Jay-Z fan then you’ve heard of Ty Ty before. Tyran “Ty Ty” Smith has become a household name in hip-hop by being the best buddy of rapper Jay-Z. No Ty Ty isn’t a rapper, but Mr. Carter has been shouting out praise for Ty Ty since his Reasonable Doubt album. In honor of these 2 best buds, we’ve decided to showcase some of the lyrical references Jay makes to his BFF:

Can’t stop I, from drinkin Mai Tais, with Ty Ty/Down in Nevada, ha ha, poppa, word life” – “Dead Presidents II” from Reasonable Doubt (1996)

And they was havin a lil’ trouble with the pool…You and Ty Ty was laughin’…Emory was there, what up Emory? What up Ty?” – “My 1st Song” from The Black Album (2003)

“And I brought my boys with me, say what up to Ty Ty/Still sippin’ Mai Tais, sitting courtside/Knicks and Nets give me high fives…” – “Empire State of Mind” from The Blueprint 3 (2009)
