What happened? In the Hype Williams directed “Blue Magic” video, Jay is seen rapping in front of a painting done by Takashi Murakami and spin-art skull paintings done by Damien Hirst.

Complex says: It’s easy to see why Jay connects with artists like Murakami and Hirst. All three artists deal heavily with expectations that could drive even the most content insane and it shows in their work. So we’re not surprised Jay’s got a few of these. And with a crib like the one in the video, wall space is obviously not an issue.
