Just in case you didn't love Jay-Z

Check out Jay-Z chatting with an elderly lady on the subway about who he is. Little does he know, she's famous, too.

Just in case you didn’t love Jay-Z, check him out in this clip from the new YouTube documentary about his recent string of performances, Where I’m From.

First of all: He’s taking the subway. (Wonder if his wife, Beyoncé, and baby Blue Ivy ever join him?)

Second of all: He’s chatting with a sweet elderly lady.

Third of all: He’s being very humble about his extreme fame.

Fourth of all: He doesn’t realize said sweet elderly lady is pretty famous herself.


Wondering who the elderly woman is? She’s a famous New York artist, Ellen Grossman.

So do you like Jay-Z a little more now? I do.

Huge thanks to Alex Mlynek for the tip. Great clip!
