The 20 Best Rapper Art Moments of 2012

13. Jay-Z Sits Across from Basquiat Painting in D'Usse Liquor Ad

Date: October 15

In addition to rapping the classic line, "Banksy bitches, Basquiats" on Rick Ross' "3 Kings" this year (also featuring Dr. Dre), Jay-Z chose to feature a Basquiat painting in his first D'Usse liquor advertisement. Jay-Z announced the liquor line last May, and the first ad appeared in October. It's captioned with "A bold new expression of cognac," and based on the slick art direction of the ad, we're convinced it really is.
