On Sunday night (Dec. 11), the New York Giants played the Dallas Cowboys, a bitter NFC rivalry that goes back decades. But before the game started, Brooklyn's own Jay Z dapped up Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant. You can see the two kick it real quick above.

Dez is signed to Roc Nation Sports, the athletic management branch of Hov's empire—hence why these two are so buddy buddy. Some may take it as Hov betraying his city's football team, but then again, Jigga counts Giants receiver Victor Cruz as a Roc Nation client too, so don't be too hard on him.

Other notable players on Roc Nation Sports include New York Yankee CC Sabathia, New York Jet Geno Smith, Golden State Warrior Kevin Durant and Miami Dolphin Ndamukong Suh. Peep the whole roster right here.

This isn't the first time we've seen Hov kick it with the Cowboys, though. Earlier this year he was spotted with Beyoncé and his daughter Blue Ivy in Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' box enjoying a game. Back in 2014, Hov was even spotted hanging with Jones on the Cowboys sideline. In fact, they chatted at the Giants game tonight. Peep Chris Christie in the cut too.

Do remember—Hov has been a known Cowboys fan. He has his pops to thank for that, so this ain't nothing new.
