Video: Jay Z got 99 problems but Ellen Grossman ain't one

New Yorker Ellen Grossman has praised Jay-Z after meeting him on a subway train.

The 67-year-old went viral this week when a clip from Jay-Z's Life + Times documentary was released.

The video (above) shows her the rapper on the train in September, unaware of who he is. The star was on his way to perform at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on the New York subway.

Ms Grossman asks the rapper: "Are you famous?" To which he modestly replies: "Not that famous. You don't know me. But I'll get there some day."

She described meeting Jay-Z as "wonderful".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
