In this clip from “Where I’m From,” a short documentary film about Jay-Z, artist Ellen Grossman is seated next to the hip hop artist (who is on his way to his concert) on the New York City subway. She asks, “Are you famous?” and he humbly answers, “Yes. Not very famous, you don’t know me.” He continues, “But I’ll get there someday.” Later in the conversation, Grossman recognizes him by his name.
