Video of Jay-Z chatting with OAP on subway goes viral

A video which shows Jay-Z speaking to a somewhat bemused lady on the New York subway has proved to be an internet hit.

As previously reported, the rapper turned heads recently after he decided to take the public transport system to one of his shows in Brooklyn.

A clip taken from new documentary Life and Times: Where I'm From now shows an interesting chat Jay-Z had whilst on the subway.

The video shows the rapper sitting next to artist Ellen Grossman, who asks what his name is and if he is famous, to which Jay-Z replies: "Not that famous. You don't know me. But I'll get there some day."

He then talks about his tour so far before it dawns on the passenger that he might be famous after all, with Grossman asking for his name again before declaring: "Oh! You're Jay-Z! I know about Jay-Z!"

At the time of writing, the video has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times whilst Jay-Z's full 24 minute documentary has been seen 650,000 times.

The rapper isn't the first star to take the underground recently, with Rihanna notably causing chaos in London as she travelled to the O2 Arena earlier this year.
