Yesterday, Jay-Z uploaded a documentary to YouTube showing a look behind the scenes at how the Barclays centre in Brooklyn came to life.
Inside the nearly half-hour video, we finally learn more about the rapper’s famous subway ride in October to his final concert performance in Brooklyn where he struck up a conversation with an older woman.
It turns out the woman he sat next to, named Ellen Grossman, was unaware of the hip-hop artist’s popularity.

Jay-Z answered yes before adding “Not very famous – you don’t know me. But I’ll get there some day.”
Check out the documentary starting at their conversation below:
