Jay-Z Brings G.o.o.d. Music And Friends To His 'made In America' Festival
Yesterday Philadelphia held one of the most anticipated festivals of the summer, Made In America. Holding performances from some of the best musicians to ever come out of the country, one of those was ambassador of the event, Jay-Z…
The 'Watch The Throne' artist provided fans with what felt like a timeline of his greatest hits. Performing everything from 'Izzo (H.O.V.A)' and 'Big Pimpin', he also shared the stage with Jay Electronica, Memphis Bleek, Neef and Young Chris. Beanie Sigel, who was not there for legal reasons, was noticeably absent.
The show began with dialogue from Hov's 'Made in America' commercial as he emerged from the darkness, whilst Frank Ocean sang over the infamous beat from the 'Watch The Throne' hit, 'Made In America'.
With guest appearances from his good friend Kanye West's group G.O.O.D. Music and even Barack Obama making his very own 'Public Service Announcement', Jay-Z gave a stellar performance on the night, leaving the crowd in complete satisfaction.
G.O.O.D. Music took over the stage with performances of their hit songs such as 'New God Flow', 'I Don't Like' and a version of 'Mercy' without the ‘Ye verse. This was followed by a crowd pleaser from Big Sean as he jumped around to 'Dance (A$$)'.
With '99 problems' and a Swizz Beatz performance during 'On To The Next One', the show was most definitely a hit. And what better song to finish with than the anthemic 'Paris' alongside Kanye? To say the night ended with a bang would be a lie; the night in fact concluded with fireworks being launched from the stage as the lights dimmed for the very last time.
