Jay-Z Explains Who He Is To A Cute Old Lady

… a 24-minute documentary on Jay-Z’s 8-show stint that opened Brooklyn’s Barclays Center in September was released via YouTube. One highlight of Where I’m From occurs when Jay takes the subway en route to his last show and sits next to a kind-faced older woman named Ellen who has no idea who the f**% she’s talking to. The ensuing conversation is infinitely sweeter and more humble than if she had.

Update, 12/5: Many of you have pointed out that the woman is Ellen Grossman, who is an artist herself.

So gotta ask, does Ellen have 99 problems?
