Jay-Z’s Subway Buddy Sings His Praises
We all remember when he rode the NYC subway to Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center and ended up in conversation with an older woman who was completely oblivious of his fame, and now Jay-Z has received a compliment from his commuting pal.
Ellen Grossman, a 67-year-old visual artist, weighed in on Jay’s new album Magna Carta Holy Grail and it sounds like she digs it.
Grossman told press, "It sounds like he's really going deep into his heart and into fatherhood and even the meaning of fame.”
“[He's saying] that the money's nice, but there's life beyond that, that he's exploring. I picked that up from the papers but I felt it in the man too, when I met him. That he had a depth to him."
Ellen also noted, "I don't get all of the words but I get a lot of them and I'm really enjoying it. I like jazz and what's called 'new music' and I can relate to all the soundscapes, it's really innovative stuff."
