Oh, to be in that room with all those artists, actors, directors and Jay Z.
Just to remind the rest of us of that fine day in July at the Pace Gallery in New York City, here is the finished product for “Picasso Baby,” Hova’s latest single from Magna Carta… Holy Grail, in performance art film format.
Directed by film and music video extraordinaire Mark Romanek, the nearly 11-minute visual shows the rapper talking about art, signing some posters and hanging out with art people before performing in front of some lucky fans (famous and non-famous).
Some of those famous faces included Judd Apatow, Marina Abramovic, Adam Driver, Jemima Kirke, Taraji P. Henson (who looks super adorable in glasses), Wale, J. Crew Creative Director Jenna Lyons, Rosie Perez and Cynthia Rowley.
Jay Z will spend part of his weekend on stage as his Legends of the Summer stadium tour with Justin Timberlake hits Hershey, Pa. on Sunday.
For now, learn the words to “Picasso Baby” on Directlyrics.
