Evan Agostini, Invision
The internationally known rapper released footage from his new documentary film in which he's shown explaining who he is to a woman on the train.
"Are you famous?" she asks. His response is both humble and hilarious: "Not very famous -- you don't know me," says the "On to the Next One" hitmaker, "I'll get there someday." The hip-hop mogul then introduces himself as "Jay" to the woman, who reveals her name is Ellen.
"Oh you're Jay-Z? I know Jay-Z!" she sheepishly exclaims. Adorable.
The documentary will chronicle his eight show stint that helped christen the brand new Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Entitled "Where I'm From: Jay-Z Barclays Center Documentary" the full 24-minute film is now available on Youtube. For a preview, watch Hov's funny interaction with Ellen below.
