|NEW VIDEO| Jay-Z "Picasso Baby"







When Jay- Z said #newrules he was not playing. Yesterday on HBO he released the Mark Romanek directed visuals for Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film.


For the video Jay-Z decided to perform Picasso Baby for six hours straight at Manhattan art gallery, Pace.Many fans, artist, and friends stopped by to watch him entertain the crowd. Including rapper WALE, actress Taraji P. Henson, and fashion designer Jenna Lyons. He literally was art in motion! How cool is that?!! The concept of the video came from Jay-Z wanting to bridge the gap between hip hop and the arts. He stated:


"The truth is, as far as hip-hop and arts, we were like cousins," Jay Z said. "If you think about those days when Fab Five Freddy was with Madonna and Basquiat and everything. We all went to those clubs, that's when hip-hop was more underground. The arts and hip-hop really partied together. But when art started becoming part of the gallery, it was this separation. But we pretty much came up together."

Watch the visuals below:
