Cute, Funny! Jay-Z Explains Who He Is To Older Lady on Subway

Jay-Z Rides the Subway, Adorably Explains Who He Is to an Adorable Old Lady.

Rappers and hip-hop artists spend a lot of time being tough, cool dudes with swagger and power and all those tough, cool things, so sometimes, it's just downright adorable to see them in a humble, private moment.

Well, as private as a moment can be when it takes place on a public subway and is being filmed for a documentary. Jay-Z's half-hour doc "Where I'm From" chronicles his eight shows at Brooklyn's Barclays Center in September and October. Amidst all the spectacle, the best moment of the documentary comes when Jay-Z sits down next to a sweet old lady on the subway.

"Are you famous?" she asks him, noticing the hubbub (and the cameras) surrounding him.

"Yes," he says. "Not very famous. You don't know me. I'll get there someday."

1. I'll be honest, I've heard of him, but would have no idea

who he is in person--and I'm in my forties.

5. I only knew of him because he's married to Beyonce.

I had forgotten that he worked for the President's campaign.

3. That was a very nice interaction.

 

I just watched that part and am nit that familiar with his music but I like the way he appears there.
