Music fans know Jay-Z and know that he recently held a concert series at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

On his way to the last show in that series Jay took the subway to the venue.

While on the subway Jay sat next to a sweet-hearted older woman named Ellen

Seeing all the commotion and bodyguards around as he sat down didn’t intimidate Ellen, so she strikes up a conversation:

Ellen: Are you famous?

Jay: Yes

Ellen: What do you do?

Jay: I make music

Ellen: Say your name again so I get it

Jay: Jay-Z

Ellen: Oh you’re Jay-Z? I know about Jay-Z.
