Brooklyn’s boy, better know as Jay Z, wasn’t to be denied at this year’s GRAMMY awards. Following a show starting (and eye opening) performance with his wife Beyoncé, the MC took home the Best Rap/Sung Collaboration award for his Justin Timberlake-assisted hit “Holy Grail.”
Fans have an opportunity to cop a piece of clothing that’s an extension of Jay Z’s Magna Carter Holy Grail via a simple, but aesthetically clean t-shirt by Billionaire Boys Club.
And just like that, Jay Z unveiled a visual for his current single “Holy Grail,” featuring Justin Timberlake, moments ago via Facebook. Perhaps this was the basis for his recent rendezvous with the social media platform’s creator, Mark Zuckerberg.
Jay Z has developed a well-documented affinity for high art in recent years. With his new album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, in stores and current single, “Picasso Baby,” making noise, artist Alex Reyes created a passion project inspired by the Brooklyn-bred MC’s taste level.
Remember that crazy-eyed actress (Jemima Kirke) from Girls that was in Jay Z’s “Picasso Baby” video? The one that we pointed out here as looking kind of…off? Well it turns out that thanks to her antics she was kicked out of the video shoot by Hova’s security.
Prior to premiering the video for “Picasso Baby,” Jay Z appeared on HBO’s Real Time With Bill Maher to discuss a bevy of topics ranging from music, the mogul’s disagreement with Harry Belafonte, and politics.
Jay Z premiered his “Picasso Baby” video performance art piece on HBO, just after an appearance as a guest on Real Time With Bill Maher. Hey, when your Hova, a Vevo premiere just will not suffice.
You could write a book on why Jay Z remains perhaps Hip-Hop’s most relevant MCs after all these years. For one, it’s clear that he’s still very much a fan of the craft.
JAY Z reconnected with director Mark Romanek (“99 Problems”) at NYC’s Pace Gallery a few weeks ago to shoot a visual for “Picasso Baby.” To match the event status of Magna Carta Holy Grail, Hov will release the video, or should we say “Performance Art Piece,” Friday, August 2 at 11 PM on HBO.

Jay-Z contributed a worthy track to the pool of summer anthems with his Magna Carta Holy Grail track “F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt.” Credit that in part to Rick Ross, who performed his verse from the cut recently at Club Mansion in Miami.
