A small segment from “Life + Times”, a documentary about Jay-Z’s involvement in building the Barclays Center, shows the artist riding the subway to his eighth and final show.
The short exchange between Jay-Z and Ellen shows how such a nice guy he is as he opted to ride the subway instead of his Maybach.
After telling Ellen that he makes music for a living, she said, “I’m proud of you.”
Apparently, the lady in the video is Ellen Grossman, a prominent figure in the New York art scene. She told the New York Times that she received sudden celebrity status after the video. She also said, “I think the world is in the mood for a sweet, old lady.”
Two artists coming together? Watch out now! Jay-Z might come out with a new song featuring Ellen.
