Jay-Z Rides The Subway To His Last Show At The Barclays Center

Jay-Z Rides The Subway To His Last Show At The Barclays Center
Entertainment

Cadillac Escalades, helicopters, private jets — Jay-Z’s taken them all to get to his concerts. But the R train? Now, that’s a first.

Jay-Z ditched the usual tinted windows and arrived for his final night of eight at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center like a true New Yorker, riding the Brooklyn-bound R train from Canal St. to the Atlantic Avenue/Barclays Center stop.

Those minding their business on the subway were caught off guard when one of the world’s biggest hip-hop stars boarded the train some three and half hours before showtime. He was escorted by security but still managed to attract a crowd.

“Jay-Z on the R train earlier today,” read one tweet from @Nigel_D, accompanied by a photo of Hova and an older woman on the train. Classic.

“So I’m in the train station minding my own business and Jay-Z walks by. Wtf.” Instagram user rareunlimited wrote alongside a photo of Jay-Z on the subway platform.

Honestly, we would have probably freaked out too.

Jay-Z’s final concert is being streamed live on his new Life+Times YouTube channel. The “Brooklyn Go Hard” rapper will release an EP of live material recorded at tonight’s final show on Oct. 9.

Then And Now: How 2014′s Kentucky Wildcats Are Topping Michigan’s Fab Five Of 1992

Even if there’s good reason to do so, it feels borderline sacrilegious to compare John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats to the Fab Five freshmen of Michigan University’s 1991-92 men’s basketball team. After all, the phenomenal group of first-year students that descended upon Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus in the Fall of ’91 was the first of its […]
