Jay-Z is currently in the midst of a six-hour performance art piece at the Pace Gallery in New York City, where he's been rapping Magna Carta Holy Grail track "Picasso Baby" over and over, as the Huffington Post reports.

The whole event reportedly is being filmed for an upcoming music video, and Wale, Girls' Adam Driver, performance artist Marina Abramovic (whose piece The Artist is Present famously found her sitting and meeting with visitors at New York City's Museum of Modern Art), director Judd Apatow and artist George Condo have been spotted at the Chelsea gallery for "personal performances."

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
