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.
