London, Jan 26 (ANI): Inspired by his wife Beyonce, rapper Jay-Z has become addicted to art, and is even planning to showcase his collection once he is through with his singing career.

The hip-hop mogul has claimed that his collection is merely a high-brow hobby right now.

However, he is considering turning it into a profession after retiring from the music industry.

“Bey (Beyonce) is really into art and now I am too. I”m building a collection but at the moment I am just buying things I like and seeing where it takes me, the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

“I have a lot of pieces from Damien Hirst and Richard Price - they are incredible artists. Damien Hirst’’s Beat Life, Cheat Death piece was inspired by one of my songs, so that was cool.

“When I finally hang up the microphone I could even exhibit my own collection,” he added. (ANI)
