Unless you took cosy residence under a giant rock, you’ll know that Jay-Z has spent the best part of this last week entertaining the masses at Brooklyn’s newly-erected Barclays Center—the home of his partly-owned Brooklyn Nets NBA team. Saturday, Oct. 8, marked the last night of his string of shows—no, spectacles—which saw him not only perform his own classic anthems, but duet with Mrs. Carter, aka Beyoncé.
As it turns out, the gig itself wasn’t the only memorable event that day. For the first time in 18 years, the rapper took the subway to get the arena—and Necole Bitchie caught the footage. As you can imagine, people were going nuts over the fact that Jay-Z was riding the R Train like a regular person. (I don’t blame them either, I’d be losing my shit, too!) He seemed to take it all in his stride though, proving once again that Hov is without doubt the coolest son of a bitch to walk this earth.
