Jay Z Buys Basquiat's 'Mecca' Painting

Jay Z‘s enthusiasm for art has been widely noted throughout his music, with his appreciation for the likes of Picasso, Andy Warhol and Jeff Koons resulting in continuous lyrical name-drops throughout his recent music, and now, Hov has acquired a piece by Jean-Michel Basquiat. Titled Mecca, the 1982 piece was purchased at Sotheby’s in Manhattan, and just the latest addition to Jay Z’s growing selection of Basquiat works, with Hov posting a picture online recently of him and recent Roc Nation signee Jeezy beside one of his other Basquiat pieces.
