Millionaire rapper/businessman Jay-Z has been seen everywhere from coast to coast, country to country, and fans are always there by the thousands to greet him.
From doing concerts in Paris with Kanye West, to spending time in New York City with his new daughter Blue Ivy, Jay's a busy - and popular - man.
This time, Hov was in Manhattan near the Mercer Hotel in the popular Soho neighborhood, and a HUGE crowd had assembled, hoping to catch a glimpse of the international star.
But things escalated into more than just mere greetings and glimpses when the crowd started to riot.
The rioting forced the police to clear the streets and keep order.
In the aftermath, everyone did what they were supposed to do and Jay-Z went untouched and unharmed. Thank HOV!
