  • MCHG is, indestructibly, referable to Picasso’s “Blue Period” between the years of 1901 and 1904, a time frame where young Picasso was subjected to the pangs of modernity, poverty, unrequited love, suicide (death of his, closest friend in Paris, Carlos Casagemas) rendering, his work, the true components of expressionistic being, as his catalogue began to fluidly commence the, use of blue, with grim images of life stricken by regretted hope and reality. While Picasso’s personal tragedy steers emotional durable in comparison with Carter’s guild and successful transparency, offered through the orchestrated, curation of Timbaland, the concept of progressive failure, impressionable conceptualism and beauty bind the two with maniacal strength. As Picasso’s work became entirely influenced by the self-inflicted death of his dear friend, Jay-Z acknowledges the change or death of the Carter, he presents on the album in order to creatively change his status, or distort what you already know, similar to the hue of blue Picasso used to strike the canvas, the figures and artistic being.
