The 'Hard Knock Life' star was spotted amongst the passengers as he headed to the Barclays Center last weekend.

Jay-Z was pictured riding on the subway in New York this past weekend as he hitched a ride to his show in Brooklyn.

The '99 Problems' rapper was performing the final night of his eight-date residency at the Barclays Center when he decided he would take a ride amongst the passengers to get to the venue.

He posed for photographs and shook hands with some of the fans who managed to board the same train, with his bodyguards keeping watch. 

During his performance on the night, the star was joined by wife Beyonce for a special performance of her song 'Crazy In Love'.

The rapper follows fellow Roc Nation star Rihanna who also caused similar hysteria during her visit to London last year.

The 'You Da One' singer took the underground to the O2 Arena for one of her live performances and was seen back on the public transport earlier this year as she visited the venue to watch Drake.
