You may recall that a few short weeks ago, Jay-Z performed Magna Carta Holy Grail's "Picasso Baby" for six hours in a Chelsea art gallery. The resulting documentary, appropriately titled Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film, will premiere on Friday, August 2 at 11pm on HBO (soon to be known as the Jay-Z and Beyoncé network), right after the NYC rapper appears on Real Time with Bill Maher.

Check out the trailer for the special, in which Marina Abramovic, Judd Apatow and other celebs interact with Hov.
