Yeah, Swizz Beatz is on Instagram tagging #artlife on every pic and Jay Z is dancing with Marina Abramovic at Pace Gallery as performance art, but pieces at Frieze London are giving the love right back to rap. It's not obvious, and maybe we're just making it up, but the mirror made by Ilja Karilampi at the Sandy Brown booth (which reads "Started From the Bottom") tipped us off to a fair of subtle rap love.
Cory Arcangel's Diddy/Lakes (below), as one of only a few pieces at team gallery's booth made the true fans think of Diddy's beloved jet dance. Meanwhile, Frances Stark's Behold Man! collage has a copy of XXL with 50 Cent on the cover.
Kanye West said that rap is the new rock 'n' roll, and apparently visual art's connection with it gets deeper and cooler with the works at Frieze London.
