Hebru Brantley's Art Basel experience ended on a bang when the 31-year old Chicago artist sold a painting for $20,000. Did we mention he sold it to Jay-Z, one of the biggest stars to grace the event?

Maverick Carter, aka LeBron James' manager, eyed Brantley's piece, entitled, "Everyone’s Scared" at the fair on Sunday, and thought the work would be just up Young Hova's alley. Jay-Z eventually bought the work and had Brantley personally deliver it directly to his hotel room that night. Can you say Instagram opportunity?!
