A lot of people probably got great stuff for Christmas yesterday: TV’s, jetskis, juicers, leather-bound books, maybe even a Lexus sedan with a giant bow on it. But nobody got a more awesome gift than Jay-Z. And by awesome, we mean bizarre.
It seems that super producer/ art enthusiast Swizz Beatz gave HOV a painting of the classic story-of-Christmas Nativity scene, but with a twist: Everyone is a relevant member of the 2013 music community.
Mary is depicted as Beyoncé, who is holding not baby Jesus, but baby Blue Ivy. Kanye is a shepherd, Drake is a wise man, Rick Ross is wearing a some biblical headgear, while Biggie and Pac look down for the sky above. The painting also includes Big Sean, Kimmy K, Eminem, Timbaland, Rick Rubin, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell, Jimmy Iovine, baby North West, and of course, Swizzy himself.
It’s amazing. (and again, bizarre)
