Jay-Z, Chris Martin, Timbaland


They ride public transportation, too!

Jay-Z was spotted riding the London underground, also known as the Tube, with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Timbaland, going to his concert at the O2 Arena on Saturday, Oct. 12. Martin and Timbaland later joined the hip-hop mogul on stage.

The group was also spotted at Waterloo station in Central London. The ride costs about $7, or 4.50 pounds.

The rapper was all smiles as he sat on the Jubilee line train, wearing a white T-shirt, black jacket and gold chains. While the rest of the gang looks happy, Martin doesn't look as pleased to be riding the train.

Some fans took to Twitter to share their excitement.

"Seeing Jay Z on the tube getting mobbed arriving to O2!! Too starstruck to take a pic! ," @fuses88 tweeted.

@Its_EH shared "coming off the tube and I see Jay Z casually walking up the next escalator next to me… EVERYONE GOES NUTS!!"

Beyoncé's husband is in the middle of his Magna Carta Holy Grail Tour, with his next performance back at O2 on Oct. 14.

It's no secret that Jay Z likes to take the subway en route to his performances.

H.O.V.A. hung out and chatted with an older lady named Ellen who had no clue who he was as he rode the New York City subway to his final gig at Brooklyn's Barclays Center in October 2012.

The funny and touching exchange is part of a brief clip from Life + Times—a 24-minute documentary chronicling his role in the building of the arena.
