Jay-Z performed his track 'Picasso Baby' for six hours straight in New York yesterday (10.07.13).

The rapper performed the marathon feat at the city's Pace Gallery,

repeating the track from his new album 'Magna Carta ... Holy Grail' from around midday until approximately 6:45pm.

Jay wore a white shirt and gold chain with jeans and white sneakers and delivered the rap over and over from a white plinth in the gallery. Fans lined the art space but were kept behind a roped off area, although Jay frequently went up close and delivered his words to members of the audience.

Video footage of the song will be used for its music video. A number of celebrities were in attendance, ushered in and out of the gallery for different takes, including Tyson Beckford, Wale, Rosie Perez and Judd Apatow.

The video was directed by Mark Romanek, who previously worked on Jay's video for '99 Problems'.

When asked if he had been working on any visuals for the just-released 'Magna ... Carta Holy Grail' on Twitter earlier this week, Jay replied: ''Yes, 6 pieces of art.''

Jay is no stranger to repeating tracks, as during his Watch The Throne tour with Kanye West, the pair performed 'N****s In Paris' over and over, culminating with them playing it 12 times in a row in the song's namesake city.

At that show Kanye told the crowd: ''Y'all have to remember this moment for the rest of your life. This will be the most times this song has been performed and the most times anybody ever performed a song at a concert, and y'all here tonight to be a part of it, Paris.''
