“Y’all think it’s bougie, I’m like, It’s fine, but I’m tryna give you a million dollars worth of game for $9.99”, Jay-Z quipped on 4:44‘s “The Story Of O.J.“.

For years now the Jay-Z and Beyoncé have been putting their artsy fartsy steez on full display in the form of the visuals for their music. According to PageSix, the new parents were allowed to view artist Sade Barnette’s newest exhibit before it even opened.

“Compland” an artistic amalgamation of “Compton” and “Oakland” opened last week at Fort Gansevoort in NYC but Bey and Jay got a look a bit early.

According to the report, one of the most interesting pieces in the exhibit is a 500-page FBI dossier about Sadie’s father, Rodney Barnette.

Why did the FBI have a 500-page dossier about Rodney Barnette? Because Rodney Barnette founded the Compton chapter of the Black Panther party back in 1968.

Yeah.

Flip the page to see some pics of Sadie’s work (oh yeah, she fine too).
