Jay-Z performs Picasso Baby at the Pace Gallery in New York

Earlier this month we posted pics of Jay Z’s performance in New York City, rapping the Magna Carta Holy Grail track “Picasso Baby” over and over again for six hours straight at the Pace Gallery. The entire performance was filmed and will be airing on HBO. The film which is entitled ‘Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film’ will debut on Friday, August 2nd at 11 p.m. Eastern time.

Check out the trailer below.

“Rap is thinking out loud, and you’re putting your fears and your vulnerabilities and your insecurities to music,” Jay Z says in the trailer. “Concerts are pretty much performance art, and a smaller venue is a bit more intimate, so you feel the energy of the people.”
