In case you missed it..
“Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film” starring Hip Hop mogul & “Magna Carta Holy Grail” star Jay Z made it’s premiere on HBO tonight. In this HBO special, Jay explains how art and Hip Hop are alike, and depicts his love for Hip Hop. The film features appearances from Wale, Taraji P. Henson, Lyor Cohen and Rosie Perez, and many others.
“Concerts are pretty much performance art,” Jay-Z said at the start of the film. “The venues change. Just by nature of the venues, the performance changes. If you’re in a smaller venue, it’s a bit more intimate so you get to feel the energy of the people…In a concert, especially in a large concert, all that energy comes to you. What do you do with that energy? So, today, it’s kind of an exchange. You have somewhere to drop it back off.”
