If you haven't checked out Jay-Z's Book Of Hov exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library, you now have one more reason to hop to it. The Lexus featured in his classic "Dead Presidents" video is now on display at the exhibit.

Per Billboard, Roc Nation and Lexus partnered to bring the 1993 Lexus GS 300 from Jay-Z’s 1996 song “Dead Presidents” video to the library. The 1993 Lexus GS 300 will remain on display for the remainder of The Book of HOV exhibit until December.

“We’re excited to partner with Lexus to bring Jay-Z’s iconic off-white Lexus to The Book of HOV. The new installation adds another element of Jay-Z’s career to the exhibit that visitors can enjoy,” said Desiree Perez, CEO Roc Nation, in a release. “The response to The Book of HOV has been overwhelming, so we’re excited to extend the exhibit to December to ensure new and returning attendees can have enough opportunities to fully immerse themselves into the experience.”

In other Jay-Z library news, the 13 limited edition library cards bearing artwork from Jay's albums caused a significant spike in new library accounts. In August, a spokesperson for the library said the initiative had already resulted in 14,000 new library accounts. The commemorative cards are tied to The Book of Hov exhibit. The limited edition cards are free to residents of New York State, and they are able to collect all 13, but only one can be activated to a Brooklyn Public Library account to check out resources according to a library spokesperson.
