      Your mom was scripted…
      anywho this happened awhile back. worldstar broke this first.
      he's humble just like biggie told him to do.

      • HOOK_the_LEGEND

        Ohhhh I get it,so where there is a camera there is NO script??? BTW, Zero fucks given to when this went down.

      • JayZ

        Hey, 'not your comment'.Question; are you still in your moms womb?Cause it sure sounds like it.Douuuuuuchbaaaag.

      • Degaré

        Hook is right ! It's is obviously staged, just look at the camera work ! You americans are really easy to fool.

    • danharmonlives

      comment to hook and degare: nope it ain't scripted…

    • smart redneck

      But……..you weren't

    • Kary

      And now everyone hates you

  • tv_paul

    Kudos to Jay Z for being such a gentleman to this woman. Chris Brown please try to emulate this behavior.

    • ps86

      that laugh is unmistakable

    • take care a yo kids

      That's bullshit. Being nice is what you're *supposed* to do! What does he want, a cookie?

    • MylesofStyles

      Chris Brown wrote a son for Rihanna called, "I Found Love in a Swollen Face."

  • mike

    She probably blew him

    • thrillho

      just because thats what your grandma would do doesnt mean all old ladies are like that

    Nice of him to talk to Paula.

  • Pfft

    Lose the bodyguards, pussy!

  • Person


    • Jen

      MY NAME IS HOV! H to the O V!

  • G_Had

    Awkward handshake is awkward.

    • fucked

      How did they play that off like nothing even happened?

  • Murph

    This guy is a class act, I don't care who you are, you have to respect him.

    • Rudy

      Selling drugs and shooting his brother is not being a class act. Why glorify thuggery?

      • peanut3603

        In his defense, he thought his brother took his rings cause he took to long. saw the devil in his eyes, high off more than weed…… His brother asked to see him while in the hospital the next day.

  • Dave

    Jay Z is actually a huge asshole and would never ride the subway with common trash. Publicity. Set up.

    • HOOK_the_LEGEND


    • Murph

      Of course he is, how could we all forget you know him personally?! He probably wishes he could ride the subway everyday. Too bad he's such a huge asshole he can't stand to do it. I'm sure that's the only reason he doesn't. You're right.

      • Dave

        glad you understand murph

      • John

        my sarcasm meter is off the charts with above post.

        • Murph

          It's working.

  • Bradyized

    I ride that damn train to the same stop he got off at every day, and of course the day I work from home he rides it. Talk about bad luck.

  • nope

    pretty cool. lars ulrich wouldn't take the subway to a gig.

    • the_mike

      Lars would get lost in the crowd. Unless he rode on James' shoulders.

      • nope


  • socalmarti

    This makes me smile. Makes me happy to know he remembers who he is and where he came from. Marcy Projects!!!

  • MattKL

    Pretty cool, dude. Jay was great, and that old lady was too.

  • Verbal_Kint

    Cute sentiment but totally staged. The lady probably isn't a plant, but it a PR move for sure. The camera work and cuts alone give it away.

    • HOOK_the_LEGEND

      Christ, how obvious does it need to be people?

    • Will

      The camera is there because it's part of Jay Z's movie/documentary. It was never pretending to be some person's cell phone or anything.

      • Verbal_Kint

        Yeah, huge stars ride the subway to Brooklyn to perform al the time.

        • Jen

          he did it on purpose, as a thing for his last performance on his tour. pretty much a PR move. however, i dont think the lady was staged.

  • Stephen

    Happened to my mom too. Flava Flav sits down next to her in the Sacramento airport (no entourage) and has a 20min conversation with her. Including the "oh are you famous" when people stated asking for autographs. best was when mom told him that his shoes did not match and with his money he could dress better.

    • MylesofStyles

      Happened to me too. Was sitting there in the Athabasca airport when Queen Elizabeth comes up to me and asks me if I want a lap dance. I agree and slap her ass repeatedly while singing, "God Save the Queen!" (the Sex Pistols version, that is…). Best was when I told her that her bra and panties didn't match and with her money she could smell better.

  • Rudy

    This guy is not a class act. He's a glorified thug, who admits to shooting his brother.

    • word

      yeah when he was 13. life is tough on da streets

  • Edge

    Will she be my grandma?

  • Snape

    He was obviously annoyed she didnt know who he was

  • Kato

    He should've said "My name is Shawn". That would make this more believable.

  • Dar dar dar

    He is a terrible artist and a douche. F jay z

  • Salt

    If you having granny problems I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems and a granny ain't one.

    • Darkside

      Why did this comment take so long?

  • ABQChiver

    Haters gonna hate. If you've never been to NYC most people ride the subways because it saves time. Given Jay grew up in the city he knows its easier to get around. So if you're ever in NYC take the subway.

  • Bunny

    If it were Chris Brown, he would have beaten the sh!t out of the lady for not knowing who he is.

  • Tbone

    Some times reading the comments is the best part
