That old lady is actually an artist, Ellen Grossman.
Interesting how two famous people who don't know each other can meet on the New York Subway.

The whole sequence comes from the Jay-Z Barclays Center Documentary, at 19:25 ...
I kinda like him more now.
He's done a lot for the industry in many ways. This is an awesome exchange. Love it.
Riding the subway to his own show? Classy.
If the subway is good enough for Michael Bloomberg, it's good enough for Jay-Z.
Just remember, no sleep if you're riding to Brooklyn.
Is Jay Z the one who refused to clap for Chris Brown? I like this guy more and more.
That's right, sir. Good Guy Jay Z refused to clap for Chris Brown.
Also, one Imgurian had this to say: "I went to a Jay-Z concert in Charlottesville. He stopped the show when he saw a guy hit his girlfriend. Restarted only when the guy was gone."
It was very refreshing to see this, JayZ seems like such a humble guy. Link to original (19:25 mark) > http://tinyurl.com/a2z9oq4
Or just skip to 19:25 here:
"now grandkids, you'll never guess who I ran into on the bus today... Jazzy J"
Take it from me, grandparents just don't understand.
