Jay-Z

Rides NYC Subway

Ball So Hard

Multi-millionaire rap icon Jay-Z made his most shocking purchase ever this weekend in NYC -- a METROCARD -- riding the subway to Brooklyn with the common folk ... moments before his big concert at the Barclays Center.

Jay and his crew took the "R" train from Canal Street in Manhattan to Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn on Saturday to mark his final show at the new Nets stadium before basketball season kicks off this month.

Jeezy lucked out big time too -- because he actually found a seat next to a non-raving non-homeless person.

I think it is very kind of him to find a seat next to Yoko Ono and have his picture taken.

What a patronizing move by JZ. Save your publicity stunt and just use your normal caravan to get to your concert. Either ride it alone like a regular person or stay the fvck to your now normal rich life. Don't try to live it both ways, it's disrespectul and phony.

Oh please, I live in NYC and celebrities and wealthy people ride the subway all the time. It's the most convienent way to get around NYC. The subway isn't reserved for only middle class and low income citizens. You guys are making a big deal out of nothing.

If you are in need of some attention and you are a billionaire, just ride the subway with your huge entourage.

Big deal, a one time publicity stunt. He should do more for charity.

Artist should do this more often. Show people that they are real and not all flashy like they are in the videos.

For some reason, Jay Z is said to be the richest man in show business. I've never heard any of his stuff, but think he's a little unfortunately unappealing in the face. obama adheres like a magnet to money, power, and fame. Why was obama giving a speech just to hollywood the other night, treating them like a separate political and social entity? Instead, we're the people he should be courting.
