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.

Why does Obama kiss up to Jay Z so bad? the guy is a former drug dealer. It is never OK to do that

Jay-Z is rich and didn't do anything to earn it.. He has no talent, but yet this website glorifies him and all the other worthless rappers.

Meanwhile Mitt Romney went to college, worked his way up and busted his ass to become rich. Supporting and raising his kids along the way. And the liberal sites wanna bash him cause he's wealthy.

Funny how and what the liberal media decides to glorify and condemn!

Mitt Romney 2012!

There are millions of non-raving, non-homeless people who ride the NYC subways every day, TMZ...

Obviously the person who wrote this hasn't been to NYC very much. Normal people ride the subway at all hours every day. Why doesn't LA have a subway system like NYC? I ask this as an east coaster who has never been to LA.

Yes, put your arm around an old, white lady's neck. Bet that brings back some teenage memories.

he still had to put up with the little gangsters rapping, break dancing, and blasting their ghetto boxes and then going person to person extorting money.

It cost Jay-z more money to travel on the public train with his security and entourage than operating the whole train station, for a year!

i guess since he has the white woman wanna be with all that fake blond hair, he is sucking up to a an old white woman. we see what he is really thinking if i make the world think white people like me that makes it so. he may as well tell the world he talks like a democrat but want the advantages of republicans. no one knows that he will be voting for romney in the voting booth., anyone who sucks up to white people like this can't have it both ways. they don't like you never will and will never have anything positive to say about you, look at how they talk about rap music. you'll learn how they hate you just like obama.
