Jay Z's 'Picasso Baby' Video Crafts 11-Minute Performance-Art Project In Which The Rapper Has A Ball With His Friends

As promised, Jay Z's 11-minute video for "Picasso Baby" debuted Friday night on HBO. The performance-art project was filmed over the course of six hours at a Manhattan art gallery and features famous faces like Judd Apatow, Wale, Adam Driver, Marina Abramovic, Alan Cumming and Rosie Perez. In keeping with the rapper's stylized Samsung ads, the Mark Romanek-directed video features more of Jay Z's cerebral thoughts on art. Ultimately, the result looks less like performance art and more like Jay Z is just having himself a grand ol' time -- which is perfectly acceptable as well, Hov. Watch the full clip below.
