Jay-Z and Puff Daddy at Combs’ 28th birthday party, held at the famed Harry Cipriani restaurant in New York on November 4, 1998.

Other guests at the party included Oprah Winfrey, Muhammed Ali, Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, Ellen DeGeneres, Mariah Carey and her boyfriend Derek Jeter, Sarah Ferguson, Queen Latifah, Lenny Kravitz, Harvey Weinstein, Elle Macpherson, Kevin Costner, Busta Rhymes, George Clinton, Missy Elliott, Lara Flynn Boyle, Denzel Washington, Lil’ Kim, Martha Stewart, Henry Winkler, Naomi Campbell, and Russell Simmons. Crowds outside the venue hoping to see a glimpse of their favorite star reached upwards of 250 - which shut down the surrounding Wall Street area. 

President-elect Donald Trump was also in attendance at the star-studded bash. He sat in Puff’s “V.I.P.” section and refused to move when security asked, telling them “Sean wants me to sit with him!” Denzel Washington was overheard replying something to the effect of: “This isn’t kindergarten…”
