If you recall, two weeks ago, Jay Z popped into New York City’s Pace Gallery to create a “performance art” piece for his song “Picasso Baby” from Magna Carta Holy Grail.
Well, that piece has turned into a bit of a project that will now premiere on HBO.
In the clip, you can see Jay Z doing what he does best: being quite charismatic when around his fans. For whatever opinions people have about them – and there are a lot, especially lately – he seems to instantly make people feel comfortable around him.
The recording of the performance piece took about six hours and the media went crazy, as many thought this was extremely creative and innovative.
It may not, however, come as a surprise to some that Jay would venture into something like this because if you’ve paid any attention to his music over the last three years or so, you know he can barely recite lyrics that don’t mention Andy Warhol or Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film will premiere on HBO, Friday, August 2nd at 11pm.
