JAY Z fans will get their first look at the visuals from the rapper's epic six hour long performance at New York's Pace Gallery earlier this month. A trailer posted on YouTube reveals that the special titled "Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film" will air on HBO Friday, August 2nd at 11:00 p.m. Eastern.
In the video, Jay also says rap boils down to "thinking out loud," adding that rappers put their fears and vulnerabilities into their music. The trailer shows appearances by celebrities such as director Judd Apatow and actor Alan Cumming, as well as artist Marina Abramovic.
