Jay-Z Buys Swizz Beatz’ ‘Holy Grail’ Art

Jay-Z and Swizz Beatz

Swizz Beatz’ art will soon be hanging from the walls of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s house. The Roc Nation mogul has purchased a Mercedes-Benz hood that Swizz adorned with Jean-Michel Basquiat’s face. He dubbed the piece “Holy Grail” and dedicated it to Hov. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to art schools.

“Look who purchased my Basquiat on Benz Hood 2day,” tweeted Swizz. “what a honor and Blessing I’m so grateful for the support! July 4 its Showtime ART LIFE!!! I will use proceeds to continue helping kids in need.”

The piece is 1/50 car hoods he plans to create for his art exhibit. The super-producer also designed a Porsche hood with Muhammad Ali’s face, which fetched $24,000 at auction.

    Ok jay your not 15 your 40+ with a kid, stop taking IG pics and tell your company it’s time to get home.

    @Bey, so because he’s 40 he can’t purchase artwork w/ a hood servicing as the canvas? firstly, the proceeds from the purchase was for a good cause involving educating kids. secondly, he didn’t take the IG pic swiss did … this is much more positive than a chick lighting up a blunt or posing half naked. so why don’t you go home w/ your ignorant, hating ass. #youseembitter
