The film documents the rapper's epic six-hour performance of 'Picasso Baby', a track from his new album 'Magna Carta Holy Grail', at New York City's Pace Gallery on July 10. It received its worldwide premiere on US premium cable network HBO last night (August 2).

The clip shows Jay Z interacting with the star-studded guests who attended the performance, including actor Alan Cumming, filmmaker Judd Apatow and performance artist Marina Abramovic. It was filmed by director Mark Romanek, who also helmed the video for the hip hop star's classic single '99 Problems'.

'Magna Carta Holy Grail' debuted at Number One on the UK's Official Albums Chart last month (July), becoming Jay Z's first ever chart-topping LP in the UK. The rapper has since announced a nine-date UK arena tour for later this year.

Jay Z will play:

Manchester Arena (October 3, 4)
Dublin O2 Arena (6)
Birmingham NIA Arena (8)
London O2 Arena (10, 11, 12, 14)
