Jay Z’s performance art piece has just debuted. Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film has already been met with great fanfare. The video features Jay Z performing “Picasso Baby” at MOMA in New York. There are also a few famous cameos, including Alan Cumming, Taraji P Henson, Wale, Judd Apatow, and Jemima Kirke.
The video, directed by Mark Romanek, also finds Jay Z discussing the fluidity of art, and how musician are also artists. The performance, which Hova did for six hours, was cut down to about ten minutes. It cements Jay Z as an outlier in the rap game, and it is clear why he will be around for a long time to come.
