J. Cole doesn’t need a fancy car to take him places. He’s perfectly content with public transportation even though he could probably afford to charter much more expensive options to get around town.

When he needed to get around Queens, NY, Cole just hopped on a city bus. One Instagram user saw the rapper and captured a quick selfie with him (via XXL). Cole, for his part, appeared totally cool with being spotted. “J Cole was seen riding the public bus in Queens,” the aspiring rapper wrote as part of the caption. “This man is as humble and down to earth as they come.”

He added, “There’s a lot of people who aren’t rich and wouldn’t ride public transportation. J Cole is a one of a kind artist.”

According to Forbes, Cole earned an estimated $11 million in 2015, so not only can he afford bus fare but in reality he can probably afford to buy an entire fleet of buses if he wanted. All jokes aside, though, it’s encouraging to see a celebrity remain so humble despite his immense success. Maybe there’s a reason behind his transportation choice. The last time J. Cole was recorded on a bus he was creating a killer beat, so who knows what riding around in Queens will yield.
