Chicago artist Hebru Brantley had one of his paintings, called "Everyones Scared," picked up by Jay-Z for $20,000.

The very large scale portrait was sold at the Art Basel show in Miami.

Jay wasn't the only hip-hop star to do some spending at Basel last week. Rick Ross went home with a Richard Mosse photograph, Diddy took back an Ivan Navarro sculpture and Usher bought a Louis Vuitton waffle maker, Huffington Post reported.
