Jay Z switches things up like Picasso

Jay Z’s “Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film” is a music video to his song “Picasso Baby” off of his new album “Magna Carta Holy Grail”.  Jay Z switches things up by bringing hip hop to a new setting.  Jay Z has strived to make this new album a new era in hip hop and has his true fans confused as he reaches out to connect with a new crowd of people.  This music video has a very communal feel and brings hip hop to an art gallery where people can spectate and participate with Jay Z as he performs his new song.  Speculate for yourself if this is a positive move for Hip Hop or if it is taking away from Hip Hop’s roots.
