And the first video to be released from Jay Z‘s certified platinum album Magna Carta…Holy Grail is Picasso Baby! And how does the rap legend do it, with style of course. Check out the video or rather the piece of art below!
Always one to break the rules, Jay Z has dropped the visuals to the song Picasso Baby. The video itself acts as a performance art film shot at a New York art gallery last month.
The mogul performs the record in front of a selected crowd of artists, writers, musicians and the odd celebrity (pree Wale and Taraji P. Henson please) who act as spectators to the piece of art that is of course – Jay Z.
The rapper explains stating:
“Concerts are pretty much performance art…In a smaller venue, it’s a bit more intimate so you feel the energy of the people.”
