While rappers are meant to be artists themselves, over the years, they have become closely associated with "art" for their apperances at galleries, museums, and various art events. Chris Brown and Kanye West are spotted in museums, Jay-Z tours art fairs and just this week performed with Marina Abramovic at Pace Gallery. We often hear of of rappers' most recent splurges on art in the news. Most people like to be associated with art, and since rappers have made it far enough to afford prized works, they have gained the access to the art world. That doesn't mean they are well-versed on the subject, however. Check out The Best Photos of Rappers Pretending Like They Know About Art.
