You’d think that being half of Forbes’ “Highest Paid Celebrity Couple” for 2012, being the husband of one of the most popular singers of this generation, and not to mention being a famous rapper and music mogul, would make Jay-Z one of the most easily-recognized celebrity faces out there…

But that simply wasn’t the case when the rapper took the subway to one of his shows in Brooklyn.

Surrounded by his security personnel, Jay-Z entered the train and sat next to an older lady, who seemed bemused by the cameras and bodyguards hovering around the rapper.

She then turned to him and asked:

“Are you famous?”

Jay-Z replied:

“Yes. Not very famous. You don’t know me. But I’ll get there some day.”

The rapper then introduced himself to her, and a totally adorable conversation soon ensued.
