Citing the artistic links between rap concerts and performance artistry, the highly anticipated Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film by Jay Z is finally here. Directed by Mark Romanek, the 10-minute film was cut down from 30 hours of footage, including six hours of Hov’s back-to-back live performance of the song in New York’s Pace Gallery. The film showcases Mr. Carter performing on a platform while closely interacting with fans and other artists, and Jay even steps down to allow others to showcase their own artistic skills.
