Jay Z, Art Lover

Jay Z, art fan
Art enthusiast Jay Z

“It ain’t hard to tell
I’m the new Jean-Michel
Surrounded by Warhols
My whole team ball
Twin Bugattis outside the Art Basel
I just wanna live life colossal
Leonardo da Vinci flows
Riccardo Tisci Givenchy clothes
See me thrown at the Met
Vogueing on these niggas
Champagne on my breath, Yes
House like the Louvre or the Tate Modern
Because I be going ape at the auction
Oh what a feeling
Aw fuck it I want a trillion
Sleeping every night next to Mona Lisa
The modern day version
With better features
Yellow Basquiat in my kitchen corner
Go ahead lean on that shit, Blue
You own it”

What you’re reading above are lyrics from the latest Jay Z album, ‘Magna Carta Holy Grail’.  The rapper and art collector has really let rip with the art references in the album’s second track, ‘Picasso Baby’. And yes you read right; Jay Z’s ok with his daughter Blue touching the family Basquiat.  Wow.  If you’re curious, you can listen to Picasso Baby here.
