For Art Basel Miami 2011, Nas put on this performance at Ricochet Lounge in the MIA. During “Made You Look,” Nas began his career as a painter, laying down brush strokes mid-rhyme. The result was auctioned off during the show and sold for $14,000. The money went to charity, but sh*t, he could probably make more loot painting than rapping at that rate. And he might need it considering he pays Kelis $50,000/month in child support.
