Jay-Z Invades The Art World

Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter has been a recording artist for two decades, but he's not the kind of guy you expect to see at a gallery. So when a friend in the art world asked if I'd be interested in seeing a private performance by Jay on Wednesday afternoon, I jumped at the chance. It turned out to be the video shoot for "Picasso Baby," a single off Jay's new album, "Magna Carta Holy Grail," in which he brags about being the next Basquiat and rhymes "Jeff Koons" with "balloons."
