Do Rap Artists Have An Education In Art History?

It seems most relevant rap artists have an education in art history. Here a few lyrics for example:

Jay-Z – Ain’t I

“I got Warhols on my hall’s wall
I got Basquiats in the lobby of my spot”


Lil Wayne (Ft. Rick Ross) – John

“Bitch gon’ bang
Red on the wall, Basquiat when I paint”


Jay-Z (Ft. Chris Martin) – Most Kingz

“They wanna be the, the, the king
Inspired by Basquiat, my chariot’s on fire”


They refer to a graffiti vandal turned  fine artist name Jean-Michel Basquiat.  Read this book and it will reveal many interesting facts about his life as a vandal artist.
