When you're waiting on the train platform in New York City to get where you need to go you don't expect to see one of the biggest superstars in the world just stroll in through the turnstyles but last night Jay-Z shocked many MTA commuters.
Jigga man decided to skip car service or a ride in his luxurious Maybach and hopped on the train like an average New Yorker to get to his last show at the Barclay's Center last night.
The rapper caused a frenzy when he entered the train station at Canal St around 6 P.M. and rode it all the way to Atlantic Avenue.
With the photo above, one commuter tweeted:
This guy is too cool for school!
The Daily News reports:
Escorted by plainclothes police officers and his own security, Hova didn't seem to pay for the ride and attracted a loud band of followers that made him look like the Pied Piper, a source who followed Jay-Z told the Daily News.
On the platform, the rapper waited for one train to pass before getting onto the Brooklyn-bound R.
On the way he even sat next to and older woman who was all smiles to have the Brooklyn native by her side.
Jigga Man shows us he is definitely one with people.
Moments later he hit the stadium stage where he surprised the crowd with a special performance from his wifey, Beyonce.
In other Jay-Z news, he also announced he will be dropping a souvenir for fans to remember the historic moment at Barclays, an 8-track optic EP of live recordings from the concerts. It will include eight live performances and will be available exclusively on iTunes on Tuesday, October 9th!
Sounds like this guy is on his A game and we wouldn't be surprised if he took the Barclay's after party to a local bar!
UPDATE: October 7th, 7:30 P.M. ET
