Jay Z has confirmed that his mammoth 6 hour performance at the Pace Gallery in NYC earlier this month is to be shown as a special one-off documentary on US TV station HBO in August.

The performance saw the artist rapping through Picasso Baby, the first single off the star’s latest LP Magna Carta Holy Grail, to a live audience on July 10th, which included art-world figures including Laurie Simons, Marilyn Minter and Jerry Saltz.

Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film will be shown on Friday August 2nd; no-doubt it’ll hit the net soon after. In the meantime check out the full trailer below:
