Jay-Z – “Picasso Baby” [Video]

Picasso Baby

Jay-Z premiered his music video for “Picasso Baby” on HBO this evening and it documents his six hour performance of the song at Pace Gallery in NYC. I say music video but you could call it a “Performance Art Film”.

The video runs about 10 minute long with the credits and all, but the whole time while watching it I just noticed how everybody is so happy in it. It’s pretty cool to see. Features cameos from Fab Five Freddy, Judd Apatow, Rosie Perez, Michael K. Williams, Marina Abramovic, Taraji P. Henson, and many more.

Directed by Mark Romanek. Read our review of Magna Carta Holy Grail here.
