Have you heard the one about the nice lady who sat next to Jay-Z on the subway and asked who he was?

Well, her name is Ellen Grossman, and she talked to The Scroll’s Adam Chandler about her brush with viral video fame—her inadvertent cameo, filmed on the way to Hov’s final (of eight!) concert at the Barclays Center, is part of a documentary about Jay-Z released this week.

The 67-year-old Brooklyn-born artist says that after meeting Hov, she “went to Wikipedia to read about him.”

Adopt us, Ellen?
