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.
