Jay Z’s ‘Picasso Baby’ Marathon Performance Video Will Debut on HBO

Did you enjoy Jay Z's (No hyphen anymore, people! Get it together!) grandiose banter in the Magna Carta Holy Samsung ads? Here's some more, in the form of a teaser for the "Picasso Baby" video, which Jay filmed in a six-hour marathon performance at Chelsea's Pace Gallery. The video will premiere on HBO — making the Carter-Knowleses two-for-two with the network this year — on Aug. 2 at 11 p.m., directly after Hova's appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher. Whether it will be a standard music video or a longer affair remains to be seen, but we can count on seeing Alan Cumming, Judd Apatow, and Marina Abramovic.
