In May of 2012, graffiti artist Kidult spray painted the word "Art" on the Marc Jacobs store on Mercer Street, spawning, among other things, a Twitter beef and a $689 Marc Jacobs tee shirt.
Two days ago, A$AP Rocky released the video to Fashion Killa, the end of which includes footage of Kidult in the act. The whole thing takes about six seconds, but you can catch Rihanna in the video for well over four minutes.
The Fashion Killa video was filmed in August (note that Rihanna still has the same hair), a full year after the graffiti incident.
