Jay-Z recently purchased a painting by Swizz Beatz of the artist Jean-Michel Basquiat based on a photo by William Coupon.
This news comes to us from Instagram. The work is somehow related to charity in a way that various news outlets have not been able to determine. “what a honor and Blessing I’m so grateful for the support!” Mr. Beatz wrote on Instagram. “July 4 its Showtime [because that’s when Jay-Z’s new album comes out] ART LIFE!!! I will use proceeds to continue helping kids in need.”
