Hip-hop heavyweights Jay Z, Sean '' Combs and Rick Ross showed off their arty side by spending more than $100,000 (£62,500) at an exhibition on Friday (07Dec12).

The trio was among the stars who headed to Miami, Florida for the annual Art Basel fair, and they wasted no time in picking up pricey works to display at home.
