This video is more cute than anything else. It’s nice to see a celebrity who doesn’t seem so full of himself. I have seen a lot of smaller celebrities get really offended when they aren’t recognized by everyone in the room. He handled this like a champ.

Official Video Description:
Today (which happens to be Hova’s 43rd birthday), a 24-minute documentary on Jay-Z’s 8-show stint that opened Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in September was released via YouTube. One highlight of Where I’m From occurs when Jay takes the subway en route to his last show and sits next to a kind-faced older woman named Ellen who has no idea who the fuck she’s talking to. The ensuing conversation is infinitely sweeter and more humble than if she had.
