Published Mar 20, 2015Prominent art auctioneering entity Sotheby's has unveiled a new partnership with none other than the 6 God himself. It was announced yesterday (March 19) that Drake will be curating the soundtrack to an upcoming show from the art brokers.
As the New York Times reports, the exhibition will feature contemporary pieces from black American artists like Rashid Johnson, Nick Cave, Glenn Ligon, Kara Walker, Wangechi Mutu and Jean-Michel Basquiat. It will be hosted at Sotheby's New York headquarters, and run from April 28 to June 12.
Drake will select music to accompany the works of art, which visitors will be able to hear at listening stations throughout the exhibit.
The auction house referred to Drake as a one of today's "foremost cultural tastemakers," and while he may be gaining cred in the art world in exchange for his curatorial prowess, the rapper will not be getting paid for the gig.
While some extra cash might be useful given his current legal battle over the recent documentary Homecoming, Drake can take solace in the fact that every single song on his new album If You're Reading This It's Too Late recently made it on to the Billboard charts.
