The 20 Best Rapper Art Moments of 2012

15. Jake Davis Shoots A$AP Rocky for his #Screentest Series

Date: April 4

During a photo shoot for Vogue Homme Japan, Jake Davis filmed one of his classic #screentests with A$AP Rocky as the subject. Inspired by Andy Warhol's screen tests, the series is a staple of Davis' work. This one in particular was also a collaboration with art director Matthew Williams, who's done work for Lady Gaga, SHOWStudio, Rihanna, and Kanye West. Whether it's Rocky's impossible coolness while smoking a cigarette and resembling Basquiat or Davis' and Williams' brilliant creative direction, the film was a highlight among this year's many art moments.
